Choosing the Trigger
 
The trigger indicates which model leads the computation by making the first request for a data value.  In a composition with a simple chain of models it is easy to identify the last model in the chain and, therefore, the model on which to set the trigger.  In a more complicated composition with bi-directional connections the user must select a model based on an understanding of the time horizon of each component and the 'system state' they wish to achieve at the completion of the composition.
