Setting Up a Model Structure

Enterprise Architect has been designed as a productivity tool from the ground up, and setting up a model structure - sometimes a daunting task for the beginner and tedious for the experienced user - is made simple in Enterprise Architect by the use of Model Wizards.

The structure for a new initiative (project) can be created using the Model Wizard, which will create an entire project structure that can be tailored on import, providing all the Packages ready to start the project.

The structure of the repository is a subject that is explored in a later topic, because it is critical to the success of a model-based engineering approach to Systems Engineering. We will learn later that Packages are important units in the organization and maintenance of a model repository, and there is an entire topic dedicated to the subject of using Packages to structure the repository. For more information see the Model Wizard Help topic.
