Case Studies

Case Studies (27)

A Case Study is a collection of information about an individual, company, standards body or entity that wish to illustrate their experience with Enterprise Architect. It could describe an evaluation of a process, specific implementation, a real world example or demonstrate a best practice approach for a given industry or domain. Use this link to submit innovative and exciting case studies on how Enterprise Architect has been successfully used within your organization.

Introduction In the last year I have done a number of projects for a Dutch government agency as a data architect. This organisation has an architecture team with four members. There is a problem in producing architecture documents like Project Start Architectures, it takes too much time and the result has limited value for the projects. This is mainly caused by the lack of overview on the baseline and the target architecture. There is no overview of the business processes, the application and the infrastructure. For every project, an architect has to do a lot of research on the baseline…
Summary of the presentation (from the EA User Group Meeting at Nuremberg, Oct. 8th 2013) This animated presentation downloadable below is about the Open Group's TOGAF 9.1 and ArchiMate 2.0 standards. It illustrates on a short case study how to use the ArchiMate ® 2.0 notations throughout TOGAF® 9’ ADM phases until aligning SOA implementation components with changing business strategies and capabilities* using Sparx EA. The single slide case study is provided using the Balanced Score Cards perspectives to conduct TOGAF 9 / Archimate 2.0 EA Operating Model. (*) Capability (TOGAF 9.1 Definition) : An ability that an organization, person…

Model Led Development for Greenhouse Gas Reporting

Written by
Business situation As companies seek to comply with greenhouse gas emissions reporting regulations, there is a clear challenge to avoid the yearly pain of intensive manual information gathering from multiple sources, spreadsheets, databases, meters and output from statistical reports. A UML model can be used to semi automate cloud hosted software services. It is possible to set up an automated reporting system once, so that the information required for CO2e emissions by energy source is at hand throughout the year. Most of the software services depend on having a robust, tried and tested information model, and the time saved by…
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will survey the entire sky for a decade from it's mountaintop perch in Chile, sweeping the sky every 3 nights, shooting two 3-gigapixel images per minute, adding up to a mind-boggling 20 terabytes of images to be processed every night. LSST's image processing pipelines will automatically analyze this stream of images, and will identify, and track moving objects. This article describes the MOPS (Moving Object Production System) pipeline, modeling using Enterprise Architect using ICONIX Process for Algorithmic Systems, as described in my book ICONIX Process Roadmaps. LSST also is using Enterprise Architect for system engineering…

Asset Management and Enterprise Architect

Written by
I’ve been using Sparx Systems’ Enterprise Architect for close to ten years now and my love for the tool is as strong now that it was when I first stumbled across it with a good friend on a client site. Initially, I was attracted to Enterprise Architect because of its great value for money, and like everything I was skeptical of how it would actually perform in the ‘real world’.I initially test drove it on some simple projects, documenting requirements and use cases, with a few class models thrown in for good measure. Needless to say it easily passed these…
Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP ) is the leading Polish research and implementation center involved in the problems of mobile and industrial robotics. Using Enterprise Architect the PIAP and MODESTO teams successfully modeled and managed the requirements, architecture, as well as the interfaces in the Proteus System - a mobile solution integrating various technical measures in order to provide awareness of the situation.
This paper is a companion to a presentation made at the INCOSE UK chapter’s Annual Systems Engineering Conference. The paper describes how an implementation of the definition of TRAK was implemented as a MDG technology for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect. It covers the architecture, features together with the considerations and an outline of the lessons learnt.
January 2010, The Dublin Port Company undertook a model based approach to enhance IT systems development as a pilot for the EFFORTS framework – an initiative to improve the competitiveness of European port operations. Discover how the team visualized processes and dependencies in Enterprise Architect to quickly develop an understanding of the problem domain and target system.
BAE Systems won a unique managed service contract in 2007, to maintain the UK's Royal Naval Command and Control system. BAE Systems' project team with Sparx Systems' partner ObjektDev, undertook a large-scale migration of the Navy's legacy system. Using Enterprise Architect, the project employed advanced model-driven approaches to improve productivity and keep the project ahead of schedule.
The AD4 Consortium needed to improve both the quality and safety aspects of the development of Air-Traffic Management systems. Challenged with geographically distributed development and targeting multiple execution platforms, the AD4 project team used Enterprise Architect as an integral part of its tool chain – providing the backbone for MDA adoption within the project.
