OV-5a: Operational Activity Decomposition Tree

The diagram and steps (below the image) walk the user through populating data in Collector for an OV-5a: Operational Activity Decomposition Tree class diagram. This how-to topic presumes a novice-level knowledge of Architex and the Collector module. These steps can be completed by a user with write access to the module and architecture.
An OV-5a describes the activities or tasks that are performed during an operation, mission, or process. It is similar to an OV-5b: Operational Activity Model; however, an OV-5a is typically a class diagram showing an activity hierarchy.
It may be helpful to sketch out the overall operation or process (on a whiteboard or paper) before entering data into Collector.
Nodes and elements that should be populated at the end of this process:

(Screenshots are from the SAR EA Example architecture, provided with most data services.)
1. Load the desired architecture (based on the UPDM 2.1 Framework) in Collector.
2. To capture the activities performed during an operation, select the Operational Activity node in the Outlook Bar.
2a. Enter the activities in the Name element. (If the node is empty, click the Add button in the Ribbon Bar.)
2b. In the Association element, select any activities that could impact or affect that activity.
3. Next, we need to assign performers to the operation. These task performers can be organizations, units, groups, roles, or posts, and are captured in the Node node, a general repository for all task performers. Select that node now, and add any new performers to the Name element.
3b. In the IsCapableOfPerforming element, select the activity parent process for each applicable performer.
4. Now that the performers are identified, we will assign their individual tasks or activities in the Node Role node.
4a. If a record does not already exist for a performer, then add a record and select that performer in the Node element.
4b. For each node, select the activities they accomplish in the Performs In Context element.
