Uml Process / Activity Diagrams and Actors
« on: November 21, 2003, 08:32:54 am »

I am using activity diagrams to model processes. I am making use of swimlanes to reflect responsibility for activities. No problem so far.

However I am also documenting process roles using actors. These actors are being used within class diagrams to reflect the relationships between roles and the data being produced/manipulated by the process.

I would also like to show the interaction between the actors and the activities in my process model. I realise I could start to show actors on the activity diagram. The problem with this is
a. I am not sure what the UML convention/rule for using actors in an activity diagram is
b. this makes the diagrams very noisy - simplicity is important as not all my users are UML savvy

Any suggestions ?.
