Enterprise Architect 13 allows you to easily compare 'As-Is' and 'To-Be' models, being able to analyze a diagram to see exactly what changes occur at every iteration. Simply select the package or diagram you would like to change and use the Context Menu to 'Clone Structure as New Version'
Now you can make changes to subsequent versions without altering the underlying structure of the 'As-Is' diagram. This Cloning approach provides substantial benefits and allows you to take a snapshot in time of model development.
When you clone an individual Element, Enterprise Architect automatically prompts you to enter a value for the new version number.
This gives you greater control over the evolution and traceability of your overall model.
Represent Past, Present and Future without having to re-build the underlying structure for each representation.
Use the Insert Related Elements feature to automatically create a Traceability diagram that outlines each stage of the elements evolution.
Time Aware Models can use Diagram Filtering to highlight elements used in Past, Present and Future versions. This allows you to quickly determine which elements have been modified in each version.
Element Tagged Value Filters can highlight diagram elements based on their corresponding Tagged Value. Enterprise Architect can now display an element that exceeds a budget or can isolate requirements that are associated with government legislation or company policy.
It is also possible to display elements based on a greater than or less than range. Tagged Value Filters can impact how a diagram is interpreted by key stakeholders.
Creating Filters under a specific group makes it easier to sort, arrange and manage. You can toggle multiple filters or simultaneously enable an entire group of filters.
This allows the display of diagrams to be dictated by intricate logic including unions and mutual exclusivity.
You will find everything you need to manage change elements inside Enterprise Architect. Show the Changes windows, quickly see verified changes, new changes and incomplete changes. Searches and charts for recently requested changes and recently completed changes also available.
Show the defects window, search for verified defects, new defects and unresolved defects. Search and chart recently reported defects and recently resolved defects.
Show the issues window, search for verified issues, new issues and unresolved issues. Search and chart new issues and unresolved issues.
Show the tasks window, search for verified tasks, new tasks and incomplete tasks. Search and chart new tasks and incomplete tasks.
Show the events window, searches for high priority and open events. Search and chart recently reported events and recently completed events.
Show the decisions window, search on verified decisions, new decisions and decisions with no effective date. Search and chart on recently created decisions, and recently effective decisions.
Search for tests on recently modified elements, recent test results, tests that have recently passed and failed and recently deferred tests.
Create pie and bar charts on recent test results. Chart test results from the last week, 30 days or as a summary. Quickly find Tests that have not been run or checked.
OpenModelica can interpret complex mathematical results from your SysML model by producing compelling graphs that contain rich detail. The example image graphs a bouncing ball modeled in a SysML model and produces an OpenModelica plot of the height over time.
This graph can then be used to interpret a range of factors from gravity, height, object mass and other integral system components that may not be apparent from the underlying SysML model. Bring the power of mathematical analysis into the heart of Enterprise Architect.
There is no need to leave Enterprise Architect to produce revealing mathematical graphs from your SysML model. Annotate your existing SysML model, specify default values, define test models and specify the parameters that are applicable when the simulation is run.
Produce rich detail simulations and precise graphical representations of mathematical formulae without leaving Enterprise Architect.
Generate OpenModelica code from your SysML blocks and constraint blocks. Generated code has the linkages between blocks. Code generation is customizable via the code templates.
Kanban diagrams have been enhanced to allow you to visualize the current team resources allocations to the Kanban element, seeing what resource has been assigned, and how close to completion it is.
Kanban drawing style can be used showing Type, Status, Version, Priority, Bold name, Stereotype, Phase, Author, Truncate name and Icon.
Traditional features like Lanes and Sublanes are also present, with a host of styling options available for color and font.
Default Kanbans can be set at the individual level or project level in a shared model. Meaning you can use the 'My Kanban' to track your work and the 'Project Kanban' option to work with the team.
New built in searches to find all Kanbans in a model help you stay in control of your agile sprints. These menu items are available from the Construct Ribbon.
Enterprise Architect 13 includes a new Kanban toolbox and a collection of elements commonly used for Kanban diagrams.
The elements are existing Enterprise Architect elements and include Change, Defect, Feature and User Story types.
Three new diagram types for Kanban have been added for Enterprise Architect 13 to support the existing “Standard type”. These include Backlog, Iteration and Complete.
These three can be used in conjunction to form powerful Kanban workflows, allowing you to move your Kanban elements between each easily.
Didn't get a task complete in the current Iteration? Then move it to the Backlog Kanban for processing next time.
This is the default for all new installations:
New MDG for Archetype Modeling Language (AML):
First class support, performance and behavior of Enterprise Architect on Linux and Mac OS:
C# 6 enhanced support
Added: Java™ 8 support, C++11 support, PHP 5.6 support, ADA 2012 support:
Updated: C parser, VB.Net parser, XSD generation, WSDL import, Code Editor C++ parsing:
Enterprise Architect 13 now allows you to place custom progress bars on any element that supports rectangle notation and suppressed shape scripts.
Defined using the Tagged Values, users can create and name their own compartments, show the value of the status bar and other custom text next to the bar graphic, supply a min and max value for the bar (default 0 - 100).
Configurable for teams, receive/send task specific messages via the repository.
Hybrid scripting is provided to extend the capabilities of the standard scripting environment to high level languages such as Java and C#.
Hybrid scripting provides a speed advantage over conventional scripting, and also allows authors to leverage existing skills in popular programming languages.
Flexibility and Clarity:
Rapid diagramming and UI advancements
Harmonized and Flexible Connectivity
Refined Handling and Detail
Advanced Capabilities for Import and Export
Optimized Manipulation of Elements, Diagrams and Model Artifacts
Improved Responsiveness and Integration
Does not need to be between elements
Xpath expression support added
