An Interface Control Document (ICD) tables describes the interfaces between systems or/and subsystems. That helps to ensure a compatibility between system components.

The purpose of Whitebox ICD Table is to show how Parts are connected via Ports/interfaces. This table collects all Parts of the context element. Those Parts are connected through the Ports/interfaces using Connector relationship. You can visually identify what kind of Ports/interfaces (Port A and Port B) and flows (Item Flow) are used to connects two Parts (Part A and Part B).

Example

 In the row 1, the Part Controller sends the control signal to the Part Boiler through the Ports b and c. The Controller receives the Status signal from the Boiler through the Ports c and b. In the row 2,  the Part Controller sends the flow Elec Power to the Part Boiler through the Ports bp and p in.
