Using the Specification Manager

Enterprise Architect has a powerful and fully featured tool called the Specification Manager for creating, visualizing and managing specifications which is particularly useful for working with requirements. Requirements analysts come from varied backgrounds and often have strong predilections about the way they work and the tools they like to use, so Enterprise Architect has functionality to suit a wide range of work styles. Some analysts like to work with elements and can use the diagramming interface, others will like to work with hierarchies so they can work in the Project Browser but for those who like to work with text and prefer an interface like tables and spread sheets the specification manager will be their tool of choice.

When you create delete or update elements in the Specification Manger they are automatically updated in the Project Browser and any diagrams the element appears in.
