SYSML11 — Allocation Callout to Item Flow is Ambiguous

  • Key: SYSML11-81
  • Legacy Issue Number: 12124
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Raytheon ( Rick Steiner)
  • Summary:

    An allocation callout, when anchored to an Item Flow on an Internal Block Diagram, is unclear. If the Item Flow has an Item Property, then the allocation could be to the Item Flow itself, the Item Property, or the Item Property type (Conveyed Classifier). Recommendation: develop a compact graphical notation to distinguish the target of the allocation when a callout is used with any graphical depiction of an Item Flow.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Per resolution on issue #13945, an item flow supports only one item property, not
    multiple item properties. The ambiguity presented above thus becomes
    academic, there is no practical distinction between allocating to the item flow and
    allocating to the item property.
    Disposition: Closed, no change
