The L5 Logical States view describes how operational nodes or activities respond to various events by changing state. The view represents the sets of events to which the architecture will respond (by taking an action to move to a new state) as a function of its current state. Each transition specifies an event and an action.
An L5 can be used to describe the detailed sequencing of activities or work flow in the business process. The L5 is particularly useful for describing critical sequencing of behaviours and timing of operational activities that cannot be adequately described in L4 – Logical Activities.
The L5 relates events and states. A change of state is called a transition. Actions may be associated with a given state or with the transition between states in response to stimuli (e.g. triggers and events).
