Hi all,

I'm investigating about functional simulation capabilities on Enterprise Architect. So far we used Enterprise Architect just for describe some flow chart (e.g. activity diagram & sequence diagram) in SysML language. We usually perform the simulation of such algo with the aid of external SW (pyhton scripts and so on..)

Let'make an example with this activity diagram "check money value "                                               
                                                                 
                                                                 
                +------------------+                             
                |                         |                             
                |       INSERT     |                             
                |       MONEY     |                             
                +--------|---------+                             
                             |                                       
                             |                                       
                             |                                       
                             |                                       
                +------------------+                             
                |     IF DOLLAR    |                             
                |                        |- ------------EXIT with DOLLAR
                +------------------+     
                         
 and so on with additional decision nodes.....

My questions are:
1) is there any way to insert different inputs and check the algo result in a simulation made with EA? if yes, how to do that? 
2) Is there any way to define internal variables and check the status?
3) could you please indicate a book or reference guide or online material related to simulation with enterprise architect? 
4) Which kind of simulation do you usually perform with EA?

Thank you in advance

Hi jack89,
some time ago I tried to do simulation of an activity diagram on EA, trying to introduce some automatism.
Unfortunately I encountered some problems similar to yours, also due to the fact that in my opinion the EA documentation does not cover enough the simulation feature.

However, it would be very helpful if someone has already encountered and solved the same difficulties ...

I'll keep watching this post.
