The purpose of Whitebox ICD Table is to show how Part Properties 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 Part Properties (Part A and Part B).
In the row 1 of the following figure, the Controller Part Property sends the control Signal to the Boiler Part Property 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.

An example of Whitebox ICD Table.
A Whitebox ICD Table consists of the following columns.
|#||A row number.|
|Part A||Displays a Part that is connected with Part B.|
|Port A||Displays a Port that is connected with Port B.|
|Port A Features||Displays all the properties of the Port A.|
|Item Flow||Displays the flow kind and its direction which flows through the Connector between two Parts (Part A and Part B).|
|Port B||Displays a Port that is connected with Port A.|
|Port B Features||Displays all the properties of the Port B.|
|Part B||Displays a Part that is connected with Part A.|
