Creating a new model

We’ll start by adding functions to our model and then wiring them together to create a network over which information can flow.

The basic building blocks of an AIM model are functions. Functions can input and output information, and can be connected together by flow steps.

This network of functions and flow steps is how information flows through your business.

To add functions:

  • Drag functions on from the model palette in the lower right corner onto your model, or
  • Ctrl-drag an existing function to copy it.

To create a flow step between 2 functions

  • Shift-drag from one function to another
  • Multiple flow steps can belong to the same flow
