    • Sub System
    • Transactional Function
    • Data Function

  2. Drag an Application System item from a drawer to the desired place ( an empty space inside the Function Point Modeler diagram editor). You can also click a location on the page, and then click on an item in the drawer. Make sure that you drag and drop appropriate items onto a diagram. For example, you can not drop Sub System item onto the diagram first without an Application System .
