Reviews

Enterprise Architect has a flexible review facility called a Team Library, which allows any type of review to be conducted including: inspections, formal and informal walk-throughs, single issue reviews, desk checks and pass-arounds. One of the powerful aspects of the Team Library facility is that it is right in the model, and elements - such as the work product being reviewed or related artifacts - can be attached to the review and reviewers and others can open them from the review window. Any amount of text can be added in a document editor, allowing reviews to be described and published.

Requirements can be lodged to be reviewed in Enterprise Architect's Team Review window.

Team Library

The Team Library facility is a powerful tool for assisting with a review. Creating and recording a Team Library document directly in the model is useful as it allows a reviewer to include links that reference parts of the repository, such as Requirements or Components. There is a word processor document available that can be used to describe aspects of the review, and a template can be used to define the structure of the document. Any number of categories can be set up for the reviews, and topics and documents can be added to these to form a hierarchy. Resources such as XML files and Images can be added under the Category, Topic or Document. Model Links allow elements and diagrams to be dragged and dropped from the Browser window, creating links to these elements from the review.

Calendar

The Calendar provides a way to record and present important temporal information, such as events and meetings, in calendar format. Reviews can be entered into the Calendar and set up as recurring if needed. Event subtypes can be configured to add 'Review' as a Meeting Type.

Model Mail

Model Mail can be used to notify and remind people of a Review and to notify them after the review about outcomes and decisions and required actions. Links to model elements and diagrams, matrices, team reviews and a variety of other items can be added.
