Change Management Panel

The 'Change Management' panel is used for describing important model management items that apply to an element. Enterprise Architect is a powerful platform for managing any initiative and can keep track of variations in the life time of any element. Regardless of the methods or processes that are being used, elements such as Requirements, User Stories, Business Rules and Components will change, have issues, require tasks and have defects. All of these variations can be recorded and managed, and a series of useful searches are conveniently made available to find items such as recently requested changes and incomplete tasks.
