High Performance

Enterprise Architect is a high performance tool, loading extremely large models in seconds. Featuring a high-performance model repository, Enterprise Architect easily accommodates large teams sharing the same view of the enterprise.

Model Simulation

Use EA to bring your models to life using dynamic model simulation. Verify the correctness of your behavioral models and gain a better understanding of how a business system works. Use triggers such as pressing a button, flicking a switch or receiving a message to control the execution of your simulations. EA can also control the flow of your simulation using Guards and Effects written in JavaScript.
