Formal Review

Enterprise Architect 13.5 brings in a powerful yet simple mechanism for capturing & managing Element discussions in a team based environment. This feature is an extension to normal Element Discussions by providing a structured process around creating, reviewing and actioning those conversations.

Navigation Cells

You can create a navigation cell simply by dragging a diagram from your repository onto another diagram, this makes navigating in EA a lot simpler and can also be used with WebEA on a mobile device or desktop.

Time-Aware Modelling

Sparx Systems Enteprise Architect; Time-aware Modelling

Time Aware Modelling is the ability to create an As-Is model, and to clone this to create a new To-Be version whilst maintaining traceability between all the elements. This can be done by simply selecting the package or diagram you would like to change & using the Context Menu to ‘Clone Structure as New Version’. Having done that you can now you can make changes to subsequent versions without altering the underlying structure of the ‘As-Is’ diagram.

This cloning approach provides substantial benefits and allows you to take a snapshot in time of model development.


All licence editions of Enterprise Architect 13.5 offer support for ArchiMate 3.0 with the Model Exchange File Format import and export.
