  • Product flow sequential number in the whole product-flow table
  • Activity sequential number for the activity (KEY)
  • Activity acronym used in GDPA (table activities) (KEY)
    Indicate the activity in question
  • Input activity acronym used in GDPA (table activities)
    Indicate the original activity which produced the input artefact (usually a document) for the activity in question
  • Input state acronym used in GDPA (table states)
    Indicate the input state of the artefact
  • Artefact type acronym used in GDPA (table artefacttype)
    Indicate the type of artefact of the product-flow
  • Artefact acronym used in GDPA (table documents, table chapters or table external types)
    Indicate the acronym of artefact of the product-flow. In case the artefact is:
    doc: table to be considered is documents
    chap: table to be considered is chapters
    other: table to be considered is external
  • Output activity acronym used in GDPA (table activities)
    Indicate the next activity which will receive the output artefact (usually a document) produced by the activity in question
  • Output state acronym used in GDPA (table states)
    Indicate the output state of the artefact
  • Logical connector to other line of the product flow accessed by the columns "connected activity acronym" and "connected activity sequential number".
    Logical connectors are employed when the product flow table has the symbol "/" in one of its columns. E.g. accepted/being proc.
  • Connected activity acronym
    Entry to the field "activity acronym" of the "product-flow" table
  • Connected activity sequential number
    Entry to the field "activity sequential number" of the "product-flow" table

Note 1   The entry in the product-flow of the V-Model with the symbol "-" is represented individually in GDPA
E.g. SD1-SD3 is represented in GDPA as SD1, SD2, SD3.

     
Note 2   The entry in the product-flow of the V-Model with the symbol "/" is represented in GDPA by the field "Logical connector". See example in the product flow table above
