Model Driven Generation Extensions

Model Driven Generation (MDG) extensions allow users to extend Enterprise Architect's modeling capabilities to specific domains and notations. MDGs seamlessly plug into Enterprise Architect to provide additional toolboxes, UML profiles, patterns, templates and other modeling resources.

MDG BPSim Execution Engine

Configure BPSim simulations against BPMN diagrams

The BPSim capability offers modelers and business strategist to assign operational information to a model and assess the quality of the solution based on information received back from the Simulation engine.

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect models are based on the UML 2.5 standard, with extensions for requirements modeling, testing, project management, mind mapping, and much more.

Please Note:

The BPSim Execution Engine is now included with the Unified and Ultimate Editions of Enterprise Architect

Installing the Sparx Systems MDG BPSim Execution Engine and registering the licence for it are pre-requisites for accessing and using the built-in BPSim configuration facilities.
