Sources are start points for flows. Sinks are end points for flows. The sum of all flows from the source equals the source strength (flow).
A source is added to a system by first clicking the source button and then clicking in the diagram drawing area. Flows are connected by dragging the flow connectors over an edge of the symbol.
|Figure 1. A source with a total source flow of 4 million worked man-years.|
The indicator SF (= source flow) in the figure above shows that a source flow is defined. The flow "Public work" is prescribed. "Private work" is calculated from the equation "Public work + Private work = SF". (SF = 4 Mwmy).
A source properties dialog is opened by right clicking on the source symbol.

The "Edit Source Flow" button opens the dialog in figure 3 below.
