A diagram that shows the operation, interrelationships and interdependencies of components in a system. Boxes, or blocks (hence the name), represent the components; connecting lines between the blocks represent interfaces. There are two types of block diagrams: a functional block diagram, which shows a system's subsystems and lower level products and their interrelationships and which interfaces with other systems; and a reliability block diagram, which is similar to the functional block diagram except that it is modified to emphasize those aspects influencing reliability.
A system diagram that illustrates the general operation and interaction of the primary elements using blocks to represent each element. Compare to a Circuit Diagram, which illustrates the specific operation of all elements.
A simplified representation of a system, with each component represented by a block, and each block positioned in order of signal flow through the system.
A diagram that represents how the components, represented by "blocks," are arranged and related reliability-wise in a larger system. This is often but not necessarily the same as the way that the components are physically related. This is also called a Reliability Block Diagram or RBD.
(n) A relatively simple diagram that quickly identifies the relationships between systems, groups, people, or other physical or abstract entities. (See also flow diagrams.)
A diagram showing the operation, interrelationships and interdependencies of the components of a system (often an electronic system, but also people, groups or other physical or abstract entities). Boxes, blocks or other geometrical elements represent the components; connecting lines between the blocks represent interfaces. Less structured than a flow chart.
a diagram showing the interconnections between the components of system (especially an electronic system)
a simple drawing showing the relationships of major parts of a wiring circuit or system
a stand-alone illustration of the functional elements of the device, subsystem, or system
a diagram in which the principal divisions of an electronic system are indicated by rectangles or other geometric figures, and the signal paths are represented by lines.
Describes the elements of a system that the product comes in contact with. Breakdown Maintenance Run to secondary failure before initiating maintenance response.
An illustration in which essential units of any system are drawn in the form of blocks and their relationship(s) to each other are indicated by appropriate interconnecting lines. (2) In computer programming or business/manufacturing process flow(s), a graphical representation of data processing or workflow within a system.
A simplified schematic representing components and signal flow through a system.
The most basic type of electrical drawing; shows the relationship among various major components in a system.
The block diagram is a simple pictorial representation of a system/sub-systems linked to illustrate the relationships between components/subsystems. Click here for more information.
Simple diagramatic drawing of a system indicating its various components - cameras, switchers, monitors etc. - and their interconnections.
