Analysis Diagram

An Analysis diagram is a simplified Activity diagram, which is used to capture high level business processes and early models of system behavior and elements. It is less formal than some other diagrams, but provides a good means of capturing the essential business characteristics and requirements.

Enterprise Architect supports some of the Eriksson-Penker Business Extensions that facilitate business process modeling. The complete Eriksson-Penker Business Extensions UML Profile can also be loaded into Enterprise Architect and used to create detailed process models.

Example of an Analysis Diagram
