Causal link

An arrow in a causal loop diagram or system structure diagram that describes a relationship between two variables with the direction of causality (from cause variable to impacted variable) and the nature of impact (same direction of change or opposite direction of change). If there is a significant delay in the influence of the driving variable on the driven variable, it can be represented by a link “broken” by parallel lines.
