Eriksson-Penker in Enterprise Architect

Enterprise Architect  provides - through the integration of MDG Technologies with the installer - two well-respected and proven UML extensions that further enhance the capture of business activities, processes, objects and information flows.

One of these is Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN).

The other is the Eriksson-Penker profile which, through a set of stereotypes, provides a unique and powerful means of visualizing and communicating business processes and the necessary flow of information within an organization.

The Eriksson-Penker extensions are provided in the form of:
