 With the filter menu located at the top right of the diagram you can display additional information,​ e.g. the input and output work products, the responsible roles, the phases, or the interfaces (= where the current activity flow consumes or produces work products from or for other flows).

 The table diagram is best suited to understand the dependencies of the current activity flow with other flows. The activity flow goes from the top to the bottom and per default shows the input and output work products of every activity and the activity flow producing or consuming those work products. The table diagram is best suited to understand the dependencies of the current activity flow with other flows.
