IDEF2 (Simulation model design), one of the process methods in a family of modeling languages in the field of systems and software engineering. It is initiated in the 1970s at the US Air Force Materials Laboratory and was originally used as an user interface modeling method. The IDEF system covers a wide range of uses, from functional modeling to data, simulation, object-oriented analysis.
There are all together 16 types of IDEF diagrams: IDEF0, IDEF1, IDEF1X, IDEF2, IDEF3, IDEF4, IDEF5, IDEF6, IDEF7, IDEF8, IDEF9, IDEF10, IDEF11, IDEF12, IDEF13 and IDEF14. The following table shows all the details.
