Describe the functional requirements of the system the the manner in which outside things (Actors) interact at the system boundary and the response of the system.

Capture the behavior and the information flows within an organization or system

Define decisions with models and tables using the decision trees or decision tables

A Business Process model describes both the behavior and the information flows within an organization or system. As a model of business activity, it captures the significant events, inputs, resources, processing and outputs associated with relevant business processes.

Enterprise Architect provides specific modeling tools for a range of Business Modeling types.

Requirements

Enterprise Architect is one of the few UML tools that integrate Requirements Management with other software development disciplines in the core product, by defining requirements within the model.

 

Requirements modeling

Business Modeling

Modeling the business process is an essential part of any software development process, enabling the analyst to capture the broad outline and procedures that govern what it is a business does.

Business Modeling/Interaction

Business Rules

Business Rule modeling captures the rules that govern a business, and their relationships with the entities and specific tasks within the organization or system.

BPMN

The Business Process Modeling Notation is specifically targeted at the business modeling community and has a direct mapping to UML through BPMN Profiles; these profiles enable you to develop BPMN diagrams quickly and simply.

 

BPMN modeling

BPEL

Business Process Execution Language is an executable language for specifying interactions with Web Services.

Enterprise Architect uses the BPMN profile as a graphical front-end to capture BPEL Process descriptions.

SPEM

The Software and Systems Process Engineering Meta-model (SPEM) is a conceptual framework  for modeling, documenting, presenting, managing, interchanging, and enacting development methods and processes.

SPEM 2.0 focuses on providing the additional information structures that you require for processes modeled with UML 2 Activities or BPMN/BPDM.

ArchiMate

ArchiMate is an open-standard enterprise architecture language based on the IEEE 1471 standard, providing a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems and technical infrastructure.

It enables Enterprise Architects to clearly describe, analyse and visualize the relationships among business domains.

Eriksson-Penker Extensions

Eriksson-Penker extensions provide a framework for UML business processing model extensions, to which an Enterprise Architect can add stereotypes and properties appropriate to their business.

In Enterprise Architect, the Eriksson-Penker profile provides, through a set of stereotypes, a unique and powerful means of visualizing and communicating business processes and the necessary flow of information within an organization.
