Assembly Connector
Assembly Connector  
An assembly connector is a kind of connector that is specialized for use in component modeling. It is used to connect the provided interface or port of one component to the required interface or port of another component.

This is alternative content.

Explanation

An assembly connector is used to wire together components to express how one component provides the services that another component requires. It uses a distinctive ball-and-socket notation to express the connection. The ball portion of the notation represents the provided interface and the socket portion represents the required portion.
