Data Dictionary

Many processes specify the creation of a Data Dictionary that acts as a reference for all the information that will be consumed, stored or created by the system. The Data Dictionary can be created in Enterprise Architect using the UML Class diagram and Classes can be defined to represent the important elements of the domain including Attributes and Data Types. Enterprise Architect can generate high quality documentation from the Class diagram and data items and their descriptions can be listed and the Attributes of these Classes can also be detailed with Data Types and Multiplicities. Enterprise Architect provides built-in templates that allow the Data Dictionary to be created automatically and these templates can be edited or new ones created.
