## Notes ##

### Business View ###

  • Business View:
    • an Actor can be assigned to 1-* Roles,
      • A Business Product is a coherent set of Business Services.
      • A Business Service is realized by one or Business Functions initiated by Business Events.
      • Business Functions group a flow of Business Proccesses offered by a Business Organisation:
        • Business Processes are performed by Roles
        • Business Processes can be Business Interaction (ie a Process involving two Roles).
        • Either may involve Business Objects
          • That are manifested as Representations
          • And may be constrained by Business Contracts
