Create an OV-2 Class Diagram

 
The following steps walk a user, with write access to the Reporter module and architecture, through designing an OV-2: Operational Resource Flow Description, using the Class 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-2 viewpoint in our example).
 
2. The default report type is Class, so we do not need to change it.
 
3. 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.
 
4. New reports, and reports where the type was changed, are initialized without any nodes or relationships added. An OV-2 describes the resource flows between nodes (or performers); our report brings in data from the Node, the Node Operation, and the Operational Exchange 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.
 
5. Our first node brings in the performers in our operation. 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.
 
6. Select the second node and edit it. This node connects the activities to their performers. Complete the Info, Model Data, and Date Attributes tabs with the information shown below. Click Save when finished.
 
7. Click the Save Report button in the Ribbon Bar to save the report design.
 
8. Click the Add Relationship button once to add a relationship to the Data Source Setup tab.
 
9. The relationship shows the flows between the performers along with the item exchanged. 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.
 
10. Click Save Report in the Ribbon Bar to save the entire report design.
