Good Context Diagrams

Cogent Language
A "context", "scope", or "system context" diagram models the project product or major deliverable by a simple representation of it in key business contexts. These contexts are a) the main end-users and b) the systems by which they use it. There is no modeling of what is "inside" the system. Arrows are nice but not necessary. Context diagrams can usefully support both project charters and the process of gathering requirements, the key project management job following charter approval.

Scope Diagram

A use-case diagram in the Universal Modeling Language is a close relative of a context diagram. It models the interface of the system to be delivered with one user (not all users and not all other systems). Here is an example, namely a UML use case diagram for an airport check-in and security screening system. it models that system in the context of a single category of user, i.e. "Passenger").
