When you meet with user in knowing his/her needs, you will be told a lot of information that is relevant and important to the development of the system. The Use Case Note provides you with a notepad for writing down what he/she said in point form. The points collected will be reviewed when deriving requirements, system interactions, etc.
Rich set of common website components are available for web wireframing, Android phone wireframing, Android tablet wireframing, iPhone app wireframing, iPad app wireframing and desktop application wireframing.
Even today paper based documentation is still required in some organizations. You can generate a functional specification for one use case which includes usage scenarios, wireframe design requirements and more. The stakeholder can easily verify the specification to development plans.

For international flights, passengers are offered 15% discount if they travel during off-seasons..."
The "X" marker can be shown in data-based gateway optionally. In version 11.0, a project based option is added to serve this purpose.
Communicate and document business workflow with worldwide standards, BPMN 2.0. Agilian supports BPMN 2.0 notations with some advanced modeling features like animacian, visual diff, impact analysis and more.
Searching of grid content is available in the grid feature.
Identify, document and manage domain terms with glossary grid. Each term can have multiple aliases. All terms will be highlighted and linked in model element documentation and flow of events. The following movie demonstrates the basic usage of glossary grid.
Attributes and operations of classes can be connected visually with connectors like dependency, generic connectors, etc.
Enumeration was supported as attribute in previous versions. In version 11.0, a new enumeration model element type is supported.
In previous versions, the default navigability of association from/to ends were determined by a single option. In version 11.0, separate options are provided for setting the default navigability of the from and to ends of association.
Class diagram is the most widely used diagram in modeling object-oriented system. A class diagram shows a set of classes, interfaces, associations and generalizations. Package is commonly used model element for organizing elements in class diagram. Class diagrams are not just for visualizing and documenting structure models but also for constructing executable system.
Instances of class can be modeled with instance specification, in UML object diagram. You can specify classifier for instance and starting from version 11.0, you can select classes from referenced project as classifier of instance.
Edit slow in quick by double clicking on a slot in instance specification shape to popup the Slot Specification window.
Sub-diagram information can be shown in grid column.
Searching of grid content is available in the grid feature.
Requirements gird provides a tabular view of all requirements in the project. You can create requirements in grid.
You can now specify the default option for nullable by setting the default nullable option in Project Options.
Name of unique constraint can now display in entities in ERD.
Create entity column with the auto column feature. Pattern matching allows you to define auto column with column name like %id, so that columns that ends with 'id' will apply the auto column defined.
Nullable has been added as a property of auto column.
The transition feature is enhanced to create primary and foreign key for new entities produced by transiting a conceptual/logical ERD to physical ERD.
Entity relationship diagram (ERD) is used to present the Entity-Relationship Model in software engineering industry. ERD can be used for visualizing conceptual data structure and physical database schema. Agilian supports conceptual, logical and physical data modeling.
The following movie shows how to create conceptual data model and transit the conceptual data model to physical. The movie shows also the modeling of physical database schema and, stored procedure.
Support better grouping of ORM model elements with nested ORM containers.
Object-relational mapping diagram (ORM diagram) presents the mapping between classes and entities visually. Visualization between classes and entities can help developer to gain more understanding of how a row of data in database transform to/from object in memory. The following movie shows how to visualize the mapping between classes and entities.
The opening speed of reports in Report Composer has been reduced. The larger the report, the more obvious the improvement is.
Add sections to report in Report Composer. Each section can define their own page orientation, header and footer.
You can now develop a report by dragging diagrams and shapes onto your report in Report Composer.
The "ElementImage" element now supports specifying width in scale.
The "Keep with text" option is now available in Report Composer, for users who want to keep content in same page in exported Word report.
Convert system design, business process design and database design to report by few mouse clicks. The generated report can preview and compare with the design side by side.
Hyperlinks in documentation that appear when animating business process diagram can be opened.
A picture worth a thousand of words, and a movie worth a thousand of pictures! Animacian can be configured and can generate animation of static design. Animacian is ready for business process diagram, sequence diagram and activity diagram. Seeing design in action increases the level of understanding of the design. In the latest release, you can define your own animation path in business process diagram.
The following movies show you how to animate your business process diagram, sequence diagram and activity diagram with Animacian. The forth movie shows you how to export animation to Adobe Flash format.
Model elements referenced from referenced project are supposed to be non-editable by referencing projects. In version 11.0, we support a feature called "Shell", which allows you to add reference to those referenced elements. This allows specifying project specific references.
Model Explorer is enhanced for better listing of referenced model elements used in current project. You can find in Model Explorer the referenced model element used. You can double click on it to immediately open it in diagram.
It is not possible to put everything in a single visual paradigm project in enterprise scale project. Agilian allows visualizing different projects' model elements in a single diagram. The following movie shows how to configure referenced project and show the model elements in diagram.
Model element linkages can be added to documentation of model elements. To gain understanding of this kind of 'dependency', create a matrix.
Overview dependencies between model elements by matrix diagram. The latest version supports exporting matrix diagram to Microsoft Excel for further analysis. The following movie demonstrates the basic matrix diagram usage.
Shapes in analysis diagram can now move freely without affecting the other shapes.
Analysis Diagram helps to identify full consequences of changes before you really make changes. Analysis Diagram visualize all related model elements. You can further analyse specific model element by clicking the analyse resource icon. The following flash demo demonstrates how to use analysis diagram to do impact analysis.
Teamwork File pane stores and manages project-related files and artifacts. Version 11.0 enables you to drag-and-drop image files directly from Teamwork File pane to diagrams.
You may want to include corporate documents to your enterprise architecture design. You can associate any kind of external documents with diagrams, shapes or even model elements. And with the use of the Corporate Edition of Teamwork Server, both your design along with supplementary files can be stored and maintained in the central repository, ready for sharing with your teammates. They can open supplementary documents directly from a design, without any extra effort.
The Visual History feature allows easy comparison and retrieval of diagram in different revisions. Version 11.0 has enhanced this feature by making 100+ little enhancements. The most noticeable change is the better display of property names.
The "Visual History" feature shows any backup copies of your great design. It allows you to see the evolvement of a diagram and revert it to an earlier revision if necessary. By comparing the latest design with an earlier revision, you can easily tell at glance what was added to, removed from and/or updated in a design.
* This feature is only available in VPository/Corporate Edition of Teamwork Server
* Can only trace back to revisions committed with version 10.0 (or any higher version)
You can change a model element to another type (e.g. an activity to action). The function was supported for shapes and in version 11.0, you can trigger the function for model elements listed under Model Explorer.
Days have been spent on drawing and organizing an ArchiMate diagram. As the project evolves, it turns out that one of the "Business Actor" shapes should be an "Application Collaboration" shape. For a thorough replacement, you could spend hours on it at the very least. But, with the "Change Type" feature, all you have to do is review in a readily available list which properties to carry over for the conversion, select them and say OK.
The default line and fill color of shapes can be set. Now, it is possible to reset your change to factory default.
You may format shapes and connectors in your drawing by changing their background color, foreground color, weight and font settings. Besides, there is a format copier function for replicating the format from one shape to others. The following movie shows how to set the format of shapes and connectors and how to use the format copier.
You can add tagged values to model elements for specifying user-defined properties. Version 11.0 enhances this feature to support showing in note shapes the tagged values added to note elements.
A tagged value is a combination of a tag and a value that gives supplementary information to the model element it is attaching to. A tagged value can be used to add properties to any model elements and can be applied to a model element or a stereotype. Besides defining tagged values, an option is provided to let you decide whether to make them visible on diagram or not.
Page number can be optionally displayed in printout. Previously, the numbering of page is diagram based, meaning that each diagram has its own set of number, and the number reset for a new diagram. In version 11.0, the Global Page Number option is added to enable the continuous numbering of all diagrams.
Agilian supports slicing big diagram into multiple manageable image files. With this feature, large diagram can be broken down into pieces, to fit into documentations in different size. The following movie demonstrates how to slices exported images.
Version 11.0 supports importing version 8.0.3 Rational Rhapsody Project (.rpy)
Agilian imports Telelogic Modeler project file. You can import your entire Telelogic Modeler project files into Visual Paradigm format. The following screenshots demonstrate how to import Telelogic Modeler project file.
