The group in the relationship map shown above is the Diary Sweet, a small soda fountain. There are no sub-groups as a soda fountain has no purchasing or marketing departments. The suppliers are shown on the left with arrows showing what they supply. The outputs of the Dairy Sweet are shown on the right.

For example, the ice cream mix comes from Boone Dairy. It is added to a machine that makes the ice cream. A worker then takes a cone that comes from Dairy Sweet Inc, fills it with ice cream and gives it to a customer.
