Hello Dear EA Users,

https://ibb.co/5Y4nf98

I am currently working on creating an MDG technology, and at some point I need to define my own requirements and constraints for some elements in my custom toolboxes. As you can see on the image I linked, in EA there are specific windows for them. I want to create my own(elements to be selected will be different according to a meta-model I want to use in EA for my MDG technology).

1.) Is there a way to create something similar to the image linked? If so, can you help me with the steps I should follow?
2.) Or, which elements from EA I can extend? so that I can add them in my custom toolboxes.

An example for 1st option: I should be able to select the type of my requirement, its severity, its Limit Type, its metric, and a value with a unit.

Best,

mr nobody 11

This is a view for internal requirements (which aren't real objects).

What you can do is extend from the Requirement metaclass, and then add your properties as tagged values.
Those will then be visible and can be edited in the properties window.
