"The Generate Report function receives a report request from Ingest, Access or Administration and executes any queries or other processes necessary to generate the report that it supplies to the requester. Typical reports might include summaries of archive holdings by category, or usage statistics for accesses to archive holdings. It may also receive a report request from Access and provides descriptive information for a specific AIP."
re: step 1 -- Generate Report can receive requests for reports from Ingest>Generate AIP, Access>Co-ordinate Access Activities, Access>Generate DIP, and Administration>manage System Configuration. Do each of the requesters need to be distinguished in the use case steps? It seems if the request includes the information required as well as the reporting format it is to be assembled into, that the response can (and should)be independant from the requesting party.
