For information about Concurrency Modeling in Modeler, see Concurrency modeling overview.
A Concurrency Diagram provides a view of the Concurrency Model. A Concurrency Diagram allows you to quickly create items in the Concurrency Model, and define relationships between those items.
You can create a Concurrency Diagram through the context menu of a Package: right-click the Package, point to New, point to Proprietary, point to Concurrency, and then click Concurrency Diagram.
The following sections provide information about how a Concurrency Diagram is used in the model. For more information about an item, property or model part, click it.
