EA-Matic is an add-in that enables rapid EA add-in development. It uses the built-in scripting features of EA to relieve you of developing, building and deploying full-blown EA add-ins. Aimed at corporate environments, it greatly reduces the time to introduce new functionality. With EA-Matic you can develop your EA add-in using nothing but EA, and deploy changes instantly to all model users.
The possibilities are endless. You can validate your own modelling rules, keep your model consistent by preventing the deletion of elements that are still used, add your own context menus, or make self-maintaining diagrams. The only limits are those of your imagination.
The table below shows how add-in development with EA-Matic differs from classic add-in development.
|EA-Matic||Classic add-in development|
|Required tools||Only EA||Visual Studio, Sharpdevelop, or equivalent IDE|
|Installation of a new version||Instantly available for all users without the need to install anything again on the workstations.||Msi-deployment on all workstations|
|Security access on development machine||Normal user rights are enough.||Local Administrator rights required.|

Insurance Frameworks Inc.
Insurance Frameworks Inc. provides:
- an enterprise business framework
- business reference models
for the insurance, wealth management and banking industry at a low cost.
Our mission is to share knowledge at a low cost with the following types of organizations:
- Life and health
- Worker's compensation
- Pension funds
- Banks and credit unions
- Consulting and technology providers.
These frameworks and models were developed after working with more than 100 financial institutions around the world.
The Panorama 360 Enterprise Business Framework is a road map for managing, planning, designing, developing and implementing business processes, and technology. This framework defines in excess of 500 business functions (capability model) as well as the data models, all with their definitions.
This Enterprise Business Framework has been captured using Enterprise Architect.

MODSARUS® brings to EA a model-driven approach to specify unambiguous, interoperable and vendor-independent smart grid and smart energy systems. With MODSARUS®, utilities can specify their business processes and associated data exchange. MODSARUS automates the transformation from paper documents to UML models to data exchange interfaces (XSD).
MODSARUS® is developed by a utility (EDF) for utilities, and is based on key IEC standards.
- MODSARUS® offers two functional modules:
- MODSARUS® "Use Case" supports the specification of business processes (compliant with IEC62559 Use Case Methodology).
- MODSARUS® "Data Flow" supports the specification of exchange interfaces based on corporate or IEC data models (CIM). It is complementary with key existing EA features for generic or domain-specific XSD generation using EA SchemaComposer.
- reduces overall design time
- hides the complexity of modeling rules
- improves the quality, reusability and sharing of large models
- enhances the documentation consistency of along the entire life cycle of complex never-ending infrastructures

Overview of Plug-In
The "SGAM Toolbox" supports the development of Smart Grid Architectures in reference to the "Smart Grid Architecture Model" (SGAM) as proposed by the "Smart Grid Coordination Group" among the European mandate M/490. It aims at supporting all stakeholders along the engineering process of Smart Grid systems.
Functionality and Benefits
The core element of the tool is a Metamodel of the SGAM that provides a Domain Specific Language (DSL) for modelling. As the focus of the tool is on applicability, it delivers numerous templates, reference data and more. It is complemented with a very well documented step-by-step development process. In addition, some video tutorials, reference examples and Scientific Publications (addressing the background) support an easy start. The tool is free to use.
