The model is divided into five vertical parts; information quantity, communication, method, process and activity. The model is not horizontally limited; the users can chose what is relevant for them. For example a user can choose to study only one process.The model gives example of common information carriers, which are used to gather the information needed. It displays between whom the information is exchanged. The model focuses on the commu-nication between the business and its customers and suppliers.
