TYPICAL LINKAGE CHART
1. The typical linkage shown above portrays the ties between various
panels on a cockpit chart and the contribution that these panels make
to the next level above.
2. In this example, TRAWING charts contribute to CFT-2 charts. Then
the CFT-2 charts provide information to the NAPT level charts. There
are certainly other views of the linkages established by cockpit
charts. The essential point is that they are linked and that the
responsible managers have reached agreement on the appropriate
measures and the manner in which they should be reflected.
3. As cockpit charts are flowed down to levels below the TRAWING,
clear agreements must be reached on the measures, their impact, their
linkage, and the appropriate definition(s) of the measure. As the
linkages are examined and items of interest to the next higher level
of management identified, the definition of an area should be based
The definition of the area that it expands upon.
