As an aid to managing the complexity of their operations, many of our clients use visual models of their enterprise (business models, organisational structures and business processes, IT-systems). Often they invest thousands of hours and significant budgets into creating, maintaining and documenting these models.

Our experience shows that the information contained in these models is often used only by the few people in the company that know how to create and read these models – even though the information contained in these models would be useful for many people in the company.

One solution to this problem is to generate documents (e.g PDFs) from models that are tailored to specific audiences.

We at transentis have been helping clients to generate documents from models for many years – we generated our first document more then 10 years ago in 2001 (a web-based quality manual). Since then we have generated manifold documents, starting with simple spreadsheets to extensive RTF- and PDF-documents and intranet sites, from diverse models and modelling tools.

In this webinar we will open our toolbox and demonstrate multifarious possibilities of generating documents from models, using ®Enterprise Architect and modern publishing technologies such as XML, XSL, Docbook and HTML5.


  • Model driven documentation – the basic concepts
  • A framework for model driven documents using Java, XML and XSL
  • Real Life Examples based on models created with ®Enterprise Architect from Sparx:
  • Generating an interactive website using HTML5
  • Generating PDF documents using Docbook 5.0
  • Generating wall charts and posters using XML:FO
  • Essential building blocks of a model driven documentation process

Target Audience

The webinar is designed for anyone who uses visual models to prototype business models, business processes and IT Systems and who needs to create documentation that is based on or in synch with these models: 

  • Business and System Analysts
  • Enterprise Architects
  • Process Managers, Project Managers and Quality Managers
  • Software Architects and Software Developers


26.10.2012 at 14:00 CEST (Berlin). Duration ca. 1,5h.
