Absence of edge overlays

Revision date:

Purpose

Connectors (edges) should not overlap. If this rule is violated, the model might become unclear.

Positive examples

Negative examples

Description

If Connectors overlap, the process flow may be interpreted wrong in reference to a merged flow. Overlapping Connectors should be moved to correct the problem. If it is possible, Connectors should not connect to an element at the same spot (or come out of the same node).
