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. Learn how to create and work in the Interface Control Documents >>
