Basics – Creating your model

Creating a new model
This topic shows you how to create a new model, adding functions and then wiring these together to create a network through which information can flow through your business.

Adding Information
Once you’ve created a basic model, you need to specify how information flows through it. In this topic we specify the information inputs and outputs from functions, and what information flows between functions.

Adding Components
As your model becomes more complex, you can group Functions together into Components. This makes it easier to reorganize your model.
