Domain Based Diagrams

Enterprise Architect supports a wide range of modeling languages, such as UML, SysML and BPMN, but in addition to the diagrams that are defined as part of these languages Enterprise Architect has a rich set of additional (extended) diagrams, including Mind Maps, User Interface diagrams and Data Modeling diagrams; there is even a general purpose Custom diagram. This allows several specialists such as Strategic Thinkers, User Experience Designers and Scientists to contribute to the models and to create a repository of articulated knowledge that has not been possible before.
