Using the Specification Manager

Enterprise Architect has a powerful and fully featured tool called the Specification Manager for creating, visualizing and managing specifications, which is particularly useful for working with requirements. Requirements analysts come from varied backgrounds and often have strong predilections about the way they work and the tools they prefer to use, so Enterprise Architect has functionality to suit a wide range of work styles. Some analysts prefer to work with elements and can use the diagramming interface; others prefer to work with hierarchies, so they can work in the Project Browser; but for those who prefer to work with text through an interface such as tables and spreadsheets, the Specification Manager would be their tool of choice.

When you create, delete or update elements in the Specification Manager, they are automatically updated in the Project Browser and any diagrams the element appears in.
