1. Actor (PSDP Online)
In PSDP Online, an actor is a UML Actor, role, or person that interfaces with the system you are building.
When establishing actors of your system, do not think in terms of a specific person, think in terms of their role. Do not name an actor the name of the person filling the role. If Bob is our Sales Clerk, name your actor Sales Clerk (not Bob).
