Analysis Stereotypes


Enterprise Architect has some built in stereotypes that you can assign to an element during analysis. The effect of these stereotypes is to display a different icon from the normal element icon, providing a visual key to the element purpose. The Robustness diagram below illustrates the main types of inbuilt icons for elements.

The stereotypes used are:

Boundary - for a system boundary (for example, a Login screen)
Control - to specify an element is a controller of some process (as in the Model-View-Controller pattern)
Entity - the element is a persistent or data element
