Metrics and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Enterprise Architect provides a facility to create and view Metrics that can be assigned to any element, including Packages and elements representing solutions. A number of Metric Types have been provided in the base product, but these types can be changed to suit an organization's needs. Alternatively, if more detail is required a Requirement could be used to create the Metric and a number of Tagged Values added to record the detailed information.

Element Project Management Metric

Project Management Metrics can be added to any element in the repository. Typically they will be added to elements such as solution Components as a way of indicating how effective they are in meeting the objectives and how well they are performing. These details can be added to the notes of the Metric.
