Input pin (project) (UPDM - DoDAF aliases)
An Input Pin (Project) is a proprietary element that represents a Parameter (Project).
To create an Input Pin (Project):
From a PV-2 Project Activity Model: click the Output Pin toolbar button, and then click the edge of the owning Activity Action (Project). From the context menu, point to New Pin, and then click the required command:
Click New Parameter to create a new Parameter (Project) and a new Input Pin (Project) to represent that Parameter (Project).
Click the command for a Parameter (Project) to create a new Input Pin (Project) for that Parameter (Project).
The name of an Input Pin (Project) is set to that of the Parameter (Project) it represents.
On creation of an Activity Action (Project), Modeler creates an Input Pin (Project) to represent each Parameter (Project) (Mechanism of In or InOut) of the Activity (Project) that is used as the type of the Activity Action (Project).
Note that after creating an Activity Action (Project), Input Pin (Project) elements are not automatically created for new Parameter (Project) elements that are created on the associated Activity (Project).
When shown on a PV-2 Project Activity Model, an Input Pin (Project) appears as follows:
The following relationships are of importance to an Input Pin (Project):
On the Items tab of an Input Pin (Project) element's property pages, you can view and navigate to the Parameter (Project) that is represented by the Input Pin (Project) through the Linked Item association.
The following sections provide information about how an Input Pin (Project) is used in the model.
