MDG Technology for CMMN

The MDG Technology for the Case Management Model & Notation (CMMN) allows you to create CMMN models with Enterprise Architect.

"A Case is a proceeding that involves actions taken regarding a subject in a particular situation to achieve a desired outcome. Traditional examples come from the legal and medical worlds, where a legal Case involves the application of the law to a subject in a certain fact situation, and a medical Case involves the care of a patient in the context of a medical history and current medical problems."

(Quoted from the Object Management Group (OMG) Case Management Model and Notation Specification (Version 1.0, May 2014))

CMMN in Enterprise Architect

Developing CMMN diagrams is quick and simple, using the MDG Technology for CMMN. The CMMN facilities are provided in the form of:

  • A CMMN diagram type, created through the 'New Diagram' dialog
  • A 'CMMN' page in the Diagram Toolbox, providing CMMN elements (stereotyped UML elements)
  • CMMN element and relationship entries in the 'Toolbox Shortcut Menu' and Quick Linker
The Quick Linker Toolbox Shortcut Menu Add New Diagrams

Disable CMMN

If you prefer not to use the MDG Technology for CMMN, you can disable it (and subsequently re-enable it) using the 'MDG Technologies' dialog.
