Need a tool for Activity Mapping? Solina does it.

Activity map

Although mind maps can be used to organize activities, mind maps are rather static. If the idea deals with subjects like business processes, logistics systems, information systems, software applications, etc., understanding the behavioural aspects of the idea is essential. Solina offers activity mapping technique for studying the idea from dynamic viewpoint. Activity mapping can be used to add value in mind mapping when communication, scheduling, timing, synchronization and order of topics are important factors. In Solina mind maps and activity maps can be created concurrently resulting in a stimulative and balanced ideation environment.


Unit

Activity map presents the units and sub units. This resembles the way how mind map presents topics and sub topics of the idea. A unit is a functional constituent of the idea. Units can operate concurrently. A unit can be refined with sub units. Sub units are presented with unit symbol, which are drawn inside a unit symbol. Refining can continue to any amount of sub unit levels. A unit is a real world subject like person, group, organization, part of system or alike.


Message and activity

Message shows the communication between units. The functionality of the units is presented with activities. Unit, message and activity are the most important elements in activity maps. In the most cases the essential dynamic and functional aspects of the idea can be easily presented with these elements. In addition activity mapping offers means for detailed planning of control, sequencing, timing and alike aspects of the idea.
