Metrics and Estimation

Project estimation is working out how much time and effort is required to build and deploy a solution.

Enterprise Architect provides the Use Case metrics facility as a means of:

·Measuring the complexity of a system
·Getting an indication of the effort required to implement the model
·Getting an indication of the project timescale


You base these estimates on carefully-calibrated metrics.


Use Case Estimation

Resource Management

Resources are the people who work on a project.

You can assign roles to resources and allocate tasks on specific model elements, which enables tracking of effort and estimation of time to complete.


Project Resources

Project Maintenance

During a project you monitor and manage the development and progress of individual model elements.

You can record problems, changes, issues and tasks that affect these individual elements as they arise, and document the solution and associated details.

Similarly, Enterprise Architect helps you to manage changes and issues that apply to the whole system.



Changes, Defects and Issues

Project Tasks and Issues

In the course of a project, there are various non-technical tasks that are vital to the successful management and completion of the project, such as meetings.

Enterprise Architect helps you to record and monitor these, and to manage non-technical project issues as they arise.
