What is the meaning of Influence Diagram?

An influence diagram is a list of factors in a problem, together with arrows and signs showing the relationship between them (Coyle, 1996: 31). The influence diagram has much more rigorous rules than the causal loop diagram, paying strict attention to differentiating rate and level variables.
