Create an OV-1 Use Case Diagram

 
The following steps walk a user, with write access to the Reporter module and architecture, through designing an OV-1: High-Level Operational Concept Graphic report, using the Use Case report type.

1. After a new report has been created, we need to design it. Ensure you are in the Report Designer pane of the Outlook Bar. Locate the newly created report in the tree view (under the OV-1 viewpoint in our example).
 
2. The default report type is Class, so first we need to change it. In the Home tab of the Ribbon Bar, find and select Use Case in the Report Type gallery (you can use the arrows to scroll through the menu).
 
3. A confirmation window appears. Click OK to change the report type.
 
4. In the Report Details group of the Home tab, rename the report. The report name changes in the Outlook Bar once you click off of the Name field. If desired, add a description in the Description field.
 
5. New reports, and reports where the type was changed, are initialized without any nodes or relationships added. An OV-1 describes a mission and provides a summary-level depiction of the players and operations involved; our OV-1 brings in data from the Concept Role and Mission nodes. Click Add Node two times in the Configuration group of the Ribbon Bar—this adds the nodes to the Data Source Setup tab in the Content Pane.
 
6. Our first node brings in the high-level missions performed by the enterprise. Select it in the Content Pane, and click the pencil icon in the upper right corner to enable editing. Complete the Info, Model Data, and Date Attributes tabs with the information shown below. Click the Save button when finished.
 
7. Select the second node and edit it. This node brings in the concept roles involved with the missions.  Complete the Info, Model Data, and Date Attributes tabs with the information shown below. Click Save when finished.
 
8. Click the Save Report button in the Ribbon Bar to save the report design.
 
9. Click the Add Relationship button four times to add the relationships to the Data Source Setup tab.
 
10. The first relationship connects specific missions to their more general counterparts. Select it in the Content Pane, and click the pencil icon to edit. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown below (dates are not as important for relationships; you can fill out the Date Attributes tab if desired). Click Save.
 
11. Select the second relationship and edit it. This defines what missions are included in a high-level mission. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown below. Click Save.
 
12. Select the third relationship and edit it. This defines missions that are extended by another mission. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown below. Click Save.
 
13. Select the fourth relationship and edit it. This connects the concept roles to their associated missions. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown below. Click Save.
 
14. Click Save Report in the Ribbon Bar to save the entire report design.
