The ‘Timeline Diagram’ is used to visualize the linear order of actions and milestones within a window of time. This diagram is capable of displaying up to three levels of decomposition of actions, and conforms to the LML Specification 1.1 definition of a ‘Timeline.’
The ‘Timeline Diagram’ is not composed of special diagram constructs. In fact, a ‘Timeline Diagram’ can be generated by Innoslate on the fly based on the current contents of your project’s database. The ‘Timeline Diagram’ is built using entities in the database of the ‘Action’ class. The actions display as timeline event blocks within the timescale grid.
