Recording Requirement Types

Enterprise Architect supports a wide range of element types and in addition to the elements defined by the various standards Enterprise Architect has added a series of extended elements that can be used for documenting a wide range of requirement types. When a Requirements diagram is created or opened Enterprise Architect will display the Requirements Toolbox which contains a number of standard and extended requirement elements. These elements can be dragged and dropped onto the diagram to create new elements including a Package that acts as a container for requirement elements and Features, Risks and Object elements.

Extended Requirements

There is also a convenient set of extended requirements that can be used to model a variety of diagram types ranging from Functional, Business, User to Architectural and Non-Functional requirements. These come pre-configured with tagged values that allow you to specify additional properties of the requirements.
