Virtual Connectors made visible
When elements are not connected directly, but are related through several relationships and elements, they may never appear on a diagram together. But there is a connection. It may be deliberate, or accidental. But you still need to know about it.
The relationship matrix created shows which source and target elements are connected, no matter how many relationship steps are between them. The matrix definition is saved in your model, so you can access it from the project browser to regenerate as your model is updated.
As the relationship between each of your source and target elements in the matrix is virtual, the cells of the matrix just show that a relationship exists.
To discover the intermediate detail, for each of these virtual relationships, simply create a diagram from the matrix.
Advanced Relationship Matrices can also be exported to Excel to be shared directly or added into your eaDocX documents.
