  • Organizational Chart
  • Flowchart
  • Value Chain
  • Balanced Scorecard
  • Strategy Map
  • Decision Tree.
For more information about strategic models please see our Strategic Modeling Quick Start Guide

Q: Est-il possible de tracer les exigences aux artefacts qui se trouvent en dehors du référentiel de modèles?

A: Yes. You can use the Files tab in Element Properties dialog to establish links to external artifacts, such as a website or office document. Our Requirements Traceability video demonstration provides an example.

Q: L'exemple montré dans le Webinaire a utilisé des superpositions de texte CRUD. Est-il possible d'utiliser d'autres combinaisons de texte?

A: Yes. You define the actual values that are entered and displayed within the Relationship Matrix. So the characters can refer to whatever interpretation of CRUD your organization uses or another standard set of indicators such as BREAD (browse, read, edit, add, delete ), or your own custom set of indicators such as M for Modified or A for approved. You also have the ability to specify if the values are mutually exclusive.

Q: Pouvez-vous résumer la fenêtre de traçabilité? Que représentent les icônes etc.?

A: The Traceability Window shows you how elements are connected and how they influence each other. The Traceability toolbar allows you to quickly locate and discover details about a given element in the Traceability Window. It also helps you to filter which relationship types are displayed, making it easier to find elements of interest quickly. Here is a description of each icon (in order, left to right):
  1. Locate Element
  2. Related Element Properties
  3. Find Element Usage (in diagrams)
  4. Control which relationship types and corresponding elements are displayed
  5. Context sensitive help.

Q: Peut-on avoir une copie du modèle utilisé pour cette présentation?

A: Yes. Here it is

Q: Filtre de contexte 'A l'air génial' Comment l'allumez-vous?

A: Here's an excerpt from the help topic:

Right-click diagram background | Context Filtering, Or
Diagram Filters window | right-click background | Context Filtering, Or
Diagram Format Toolbar | Context Filter icon

Q: Est-il possible d'exporter la matrice relationnelle (par exemple CSV, RTF)?

A: Yes. The screen below shows how to export a Relationship Matrix as a CSV file. A Relationship Matrix can also be printed or exported as an image, for inclusion in reports and other documentation. For more information on exporting the Relationship Matrix, please see the Relationship Matrix Options help topic.


Q: Comment les informations de traçabilité schématique sont-elles générées, automatiquement ou manuellement?

A: The demonstration used the Insert Related Elements dialog to help construct a Traceability diagram from scratch - some manual work was involved. The Traceability Window, however, automatically displays all relationships for a given element. You can modify the output of the Traceability Window to only show certain relationships. Information in the Traceability Window can also be used to help create your own custom Traceability diagrams.

Q: Les outils de traçabilité dans Enterprise Architect incluent-ils aussi les diagrammes BPEL / BPMN?

A: Yes. The example showed a link to a business process, but you can also include a link to Use Cases, Test Cases, Structured Scenario steps, BPEL diagrams and much more.

Q: Quels sont les profils dans la Matrice de relation> Vue des options? Puis-je sauvegarder la configuration de la relation?

A: Yes. You can save a particular configuration of the Relationship Matrix and it is the Relationship Matrix Profiles that allow you to do that. Each configuration that you save becomes a named profile in the matrix, which you can invoke later. This makes it easy to monitor changes to relationships between packages over a period of time. See the Enterprise Architect User Guide for more information on creating Matrix Profiles.

Q: Existe-t-il des didacticiels "How-To" plus simples sur la configuration de la liaison de traçabilité?

A: The following two video demonstrations on traceability will be of interest:
  1. Traceability within Enterprise Architect
  2. Requirements Traceability

Q: Comment puis-je inclure des informations de traçabilité dans mes rapports?

A: You can include results from the Relationship Matrix in generated Rich-Text Format (RTF) reports, by adding an appropriate section for the Relationship Matrix in your Package template. More information is available in the Enterprise Architect User Guide.
