Team Development


Using Enterprise Architect, you can develop a project across a team of people so that each person can access the latest data without the risk of damaging or losing that data. The system provides a number of facilities for managing, accessing and discussing the model data within the team.

Making project data available in a distributed environment

Enterprise Architect offers a diverse set of functionality designed specifically for sharing projects in team-based and distributed development environments; for example: network deployment of model repositories, replication and XMI Import/Export.

Applying security to the model

User Security is a means of improving collaborative design and development by preventing concurrent editing, and limiting the possibility of inadvertent model changes by users not designated as model authors.

Using an internal discussion forum

The Project Team Review facility is a discussion forum within your development team community to discuss the development and progress of a project. You can link to the model elements that are the subject of a post thread in the forum.

Similarly, you can develop a discussion about a specific element in the model as a component of the element, using the Element Discussions facility.

Building company policy and project development guidelines into the project

You can create workflow scripts that provide a robust approach to applying company policy and strengthening project development guidelines, by validating against the policy and procedures within the model itself.

Standardizing and re-using project data

You can import and export Reference data (including Glossary and Issue information) from .XML files of another iteration of the same model, or of a different model.
