Analyze entities for relationships that exist among them.
Analysis should be conducted by compiling a matrix diagram. Compilation should be made in a graph that contains all entities listed along the x- and y-axis; plotted coordinates represent all possible relationships (the relationship matrix).
Steps are as follows:
- Determine the existence of a relationship between the entity in the x-axis and the entity in the y-axis. (Sentences are always read x to y.)
- Name the relationship, using an appropriate verb.
