Project Management

Part of the "Enterprise Architect in 30 minutes" tour

Enterprise Architect provides support for managing your project. Project managers can use Enterprise Architect to assign resources to elements, to measure risk and effort and to estimate project size.

Project estimation with use case metrics

The Use Case Metrics capability within Enterprise Architect makes it easy to assess the relative complexity of a software project, based on the number and type of use cases within the model, and on the type of development project and the capabilities of the development environment.

The use case metrics can be a great way to assess the scope of a project.


Enterprise Architect can store resource information along with the model. This helps to connect the Project Manager and development team, allowing for up-to-the-minute reporting and assessment of how a project is developing.

What 'hot spots' have occurred, what elements are overdue and other critical resource issues can be tied directly to model elements and searched with ease using the comprehensive Model Search facility.

Construct History

Combine a real-time view of current software development, model design, deployment, project management, testing. maintenance and other project management scenarios. A valuable management view that helps guide successful projects and their delivery.

Charts and Dashboards

Create visual depictions of project management data to inform and drive project management decisions. Chart and analyze important information such as active tasks by developer, phases of work items by developer, the number of work items at each stage of a Kanban Board, and much more. Use template to speed their creation.

Kanban Boards

Manage the flow of work using Kanban boards in Enterprise Architect to offer an lean, insightful and dynamic view of model information. Kanbans in Enterprise Architect are highly configurable and users can dynamically define their structure, content and the appearance of lanes, colors and the maximum number of elements to a lane by element properties and tagged values, offering a dynamic, easy-to-view progress summary of project stages.

Model tasks, Gantt View and Project Calendar

Tracking, prioritizing and assigning tasks is a critical part of managing a model's development over time. Enterprise Architect allows you track model tasks against individual resources and against the project as a whole. Task allocations can be viewed as a Gantt chart, allowing you to monitor progress visually.

The built-in Project Calendar allows you to define and track important events, milestones and meetings directly within the modeling environment. Each model author has access to a personalized view of the project, which allows users to record progress of their own tasks, send and receive Model Mail and define Working Sets of diagrams and other views specific to their roles.

Project Glossary

Enterprise Architect adds a model glossary to each development project, making it simple to define and disseminate new terms and definitions, which may be unfamiliar to team members new to the project or the problem domain.

Vocabularies can also be defined in a diagram to record in more detail. Layout and group terms using packages of Elements with each element defining a new term.
