Introduction to Sequence Diagrams

Business processes lie at the heart of any organization. They define how work gets done, from the initial customer inquiry all the way through fulfillment, support, and beyond. With so many moving parts, it's easy for processes to become convoluted messes if left undocumented. This is where sequence diagrams shine as a modeling technique.
