Install a Core Framework

Enterprise Architect provides a rich and diverse range of modeling technologies including every standard listed in the Schema Composer. These frameworks are available as UML models and/or MDG Technologies using Enterprise Architect's  Model Wizard. The models themselves are also directly accessible from Enterprise Architect's Reusable Asset Service.

Note: If you are modeling a generic solution and not directly using a core framework such as CIM or UBL, you do not need to install a core framework/model. In that case you are best served creating a data model using simple UML classes with attributes.
