The Zachman Framework Toolbox

The Zachman Framework pages of the Diagram Toolbox provide elements and relationships for all the Zachman Framework diagrams that the MDG Technology supports. The Zachman Framework Toolbox pages can be accessed by clicking on the More tools button and selecting the Zachman Framework option. The Toolbox can be docked on either side of the diagram, or free floated on top of the diagram to expose more surface for editing.

This table shows, for each Zachman Framework cell, the diagram that could be used and its associated Diagram Toolbox page.
