Method

The definition of a state machine is: a logic device which can be in one of a set number of stable conditions depending on its previous condition and on the present values of its inputs

The Notch State Machine system allows certain nodes to become active on certain states. Only one state can be active at a single time and the transition from one state to another state is triggered by an event.

As such, we have two associated nodes:

The State Machine node acts as mini-root node that is the parent to State Machine State nodes. The first vertically ordered state will be the initial state of the state machine.
