The ‘N-Squared Diagram’, is a matrix used to visualize the relationships between Actions and Inputs/Outputs. This diagram conforms to the LML Specification 1.1 definition of an ‘N-Squared Matrix.’
The ‘N-Squared Diagram’ is not composed of special diagram constructs. In fact, an ‘N-Squared Diagram’ can be generated by Innoslate on the fly based on the current contents of your project’s database. The ‘N-Squared Diagram’ is built using entities in the database of the ‘Action’ and ‘Input/Output’ classes. The actions display as blocks within the matrix, and the I/Os show as text within the matrix.
Using N-Squared Diagrams
|Creating N-Squared Diagrams||Using ‘Diagrams View’ in Innoslate, you can create a new ‘N-Squared Diagram.’|
|Viewing N-Squared Diagrams||You can ‘View a N-Squared Diagram’ of any new or existing entity of the Action class via the ‘Open’ drop-down menu, where available.|
|Adding an Entity||An entity can be added to an ‘N-Squared Diagram’ via drag-and-drop.|
|Removing an Entity||An entity can be easily removed from an ‘N-Squared Diagram.’|
