AllocateActivityPartition "swimlanes" in Activity Diagrams are an easy way to manage "classic" functional (a.k.a. behavioral) allocation of a CallBehaviorAction to a part Property:
A consistent usage level allocation has been made in the tool between the CallBehaviorAction
action (of type
Activity) to the part Property
part:PartType, which is represented by the «allocate» swimlane.
Please do always heed this warning:
If you are curious about some edge cases for allocations using swimlanes (and why they should be avoided) some are explored in some advanced slides later in this trail section.
While functional (behavioral) allocation is perhaps the best known use of allocation in "classic" systems engineering, it is not the only kind, and also not the only very useful kind; in the next slide we have a quick look at structural allocation in SysML, before learning how we can examine allocations across an entire model using interactive tables and matrices in the tool.
BTW: The Dependency 'typed by' from the
part:PartTypeto the block
PartTypeis for illustration only.
