Junction

Composition Relationship

The composition relationship indicates that an element consists of one or more other elements.

Aggregation Relationship

The aggregation relationship indicates that an element groups a number of other elements.

Assignment Relationship

The assignment relationship expresses the allocation of responsibility, performance of behavior, or execution.

Realization Relationship

The realization relationship indicates that an entity plays a critical role in the creation, achievement, sustenance, or operation of a more abstract entity.

Serving Relationship

The serving relationship models that an element provides its functionality to another element.

Access Relationship

The access relationship models the ability of behavior and active structure elements to observe or act upon passive structure elements.

Influence Relationship

The influence relationship models that an element affects the implementation or achievement of some motivation element.

Triggering Relationship

The triggering relationship describes a temporal or causal relationship between elements.

Flow Relationship

The flow relationship represents transfer from one element to another.

Specialization Relationship

The specialization relationship indicates that an element is a particular kind of another element.

Association Relationship

An association models an unspecified relationship, or one that is not represented by another ArchiMate relationship.

Junction

A junction is used to connect relationships of the same type.
