Recording Requirement Types

Enterprise Architect supports a wide range of element types and, in addition to the elements defined by the various standards, Enterprise Architect has added a series of extended elements that can be used for documenting a wide range of requirement types. When a Requirements diagram is created or opened, Enterprise Architect will display the Requirements Toolbox, which contains a number of standard and extended requirement elements. These elements can be dragged and dropped onto the diagram to create new elements, including a Package that acts as a container for Requirement elements and Feature, Risk and Object elements.

Extended Requirements

There is also a convenient set of extended requirements that can be used to model a variety of diagram types ranging from Functional, Business and User to Architectural and Non-Functional requirements. These come pre-configured with Tagged Values that allow you to specify additional properties of the requirements.
