Since the same functionality could be provided by multiple providers, the functionality usage is introduced to break up the many-to-many relationship between provider and functionality.
The functionality usage is automatically created when a functionality is linked to a process or activity. In the functionality usage it is possible to define who (typiocal a system, system component, Service or External Entity) is providing the functionality.
Please note that the provider is not mandatory. An empty provider field could be interpreted as a need for improved IT support.
In addition it is possible to grade how well the provided functionality works and how important the functionality is in this context.
