Define System, Boundary, and Operating Context

Persona: Analyst

Create the system in this step at a high level, including common identifier(s) relevant to site terminology. Create a boundary to clearly identify the system and system functions being analyzed. Typically, a drawing or drawings, such as P&ID, are referenced in this step with mark-ups showing boundaries for the analysis. It is useful to understand the operating context of the system. An operating context document is assembled and reviewed with the team. The operating context diagram will include system functional flow description, equipment list, operating parameter ranges, and references.
