Example#

Diaflux Editor#

The Diaflux workflow may be edited using the Visual Editor.



Diaflux elements#

  • Start node: entry point for a DiaFlux
  • Exit node: exit point of a DiaFlux
  • Action node: select a question, solution, or other flowchart and model an interaction with this it.
  • Comment node: use this node to provide annotations to transitions or nodes.
  • SnapShot node: used to inhibit the truth maintainance to reverse decisions before this snapshot. (Behaves like a diode.)

Editor tools
#

  • Save flowchart and close editor
  • Revert changes
  • Close editor (without saving)
  • Delete flowchart

Best Practices
#

  • A DiaFlux flowchart shall have a unique name.
  • One flowchart needs to be checked for Autostart. (That is where a session workflow will start.)
  • Do not overload a single flowchart. Model rather small parts and reference them in a parent flowchart.
    Rule of thumb: Not more than a monitors field of view.
