What is a sequence diagram?
A sequence diagram is the best way to visualize and validate various real time scenarios for any kind of process. These can help to predict how a process will behave and to discover responsibilities . How can we make a sequence flow and a sequence diagram?
How to Use Sequence Diagrams?
- List out the Roles and Responsibilities of process.
- Connect appropriate responsibilities to the roles.
- Compare Responsibilities played by different roles.
We have taken a simple example of Sequence flow which happens in Temple. Roles have been divided into 3 different Titles. Let us see how sequence flow comes into play.
Titles have been mapped to their respective responsibilities in the sequence diagram
With all responsibilities put together we were able to compare between roles and responsibilities.
Responsibilities have been divided into 2 categories. That is Consumer and Producer.

Creating a graphical representation of the steps in a process is easy to understand and it gives us the better chances of improving the process.
