The slidedeck of the presentation about EA and version control as presented during the London EA usergroup event of may 2017. Feel free to contact me for any additional questions   Dennis Geluk  
Overview Your organization is committed to Agile, Scrum and TDD. That’s not going to change.  But somehow things aren’t going as smoothly as you’d like. Your project is on the “underplanned” end of the spectrum and you feel like everything could be working more smoothly. If I’ve just described your current situation, then this article might be for you.  The Resilient Agile (RA) process combines Test Driven Development with Design Driven Testing, resulting in improved coverage for both unit and acceptance testing, and helps you plan your sprints better by introducing visual modeling of user stories, epics, and tasks.   RA…

Automated FMU Generation from UML Models

Written by
Automated FMU Generation from UML Models   Original created by: Manuel Geier and Bernhard Sadransky (www.sysml4industry.org) Introduction The simulation of cyber-physical systems plays an increasingly important role in the development process of such systems. It enables the engineers to get a better understanding of the system in the early phases of the development. These complex systems are composed of different subsystems, each subsystem model is designed with its own specialized tool sets. Because of this heterogeneity the coordination and integration of these subsystem models becomes a challenge.The Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) specification was developed by an industry consortium as a tool independent…

Branch / Merge with EA V13

Written by
Anyone who has done code development in a team will be familiar with the idea of branching and merging. It’s a way to allow programmers to collaborate on a complicated set of code, without falling-over each other. Someone takes a copy (“branch”) of some code, modifies it, and merges it with the original copy when they are finished. Good code management systems help to see where their changes and those of others – who may have changed the same code - have caused problems, which is why branch/merge is how almost all coding teams work. This is only important to…

Introduction to the Database Builder

Written by
Enterprise Architect’s Database Builder provides interactive connectivity to a DBMS,  supporting both the initial creation of a database and the ongoing update of tables, views, triggers and procedures – all from within the design model.   This tutorial paper works through a simple database example (attached in .ZIP file) using the Database Builder to create tables within a new Database, then make modifications in both the model and the Database and use the compare functionality to update the Database and the model respectively.
