WinA&D Developer supports UML 2.2, SASD or data
modeling projects. Building on the modeling capabilities of the Desktop edition, it adds task models for system architecture and multi-task design.
Requirements management features enable developers to identify, specify, track and control requirement entries and use case descriptions. Requirement entries can be linked to specific diagrams, tables, diagram objects, test, code, specification or foreign files.
The Requirement Matrix presents information like a spreadsheet with custom views, queries and reports. Designers can customize a template to control the fields of data collected for each requirement entry.
System & Task Diagrams
Architectural diagrams illustrate the physical design of complex systems using processors, devices and interfaces. Client-server or other distributed systems can be shown with predefined or user defined icons like computers, printers or communication systems.
Task diagrams show detailed interactions between independent threads of execution (tasks or interrupt service routines, ISRs). These interactions use operating system services including queues, semaphores, mailboxes, event flags and input/output ports.
System Models, Simulation & Dynamic Charts
Model dynamic systems as Causal Loop Diagrams. Designers can parameterize the model with data and equations, run time simulations and present the system behavior with live charts, graphs and tables.
Each node represents a variable. Each connecting line holds an equation that computes an output value from an input value.
Data files provide input data to models or capture output results. Use the integrated Data File editor to edit data items or import/export data to a spreadsheet, database or charting application.
A site license of the Developer edition
adds Team Dictionary and Team Requirement documents for multi-user
access on a network. Developers can concurrently edit and share team documents. The Team window shows an active user list for the dictionary and requirement documents and maintains the history of each entry add, modify or delete.
A large or geographically distributed project team can use multiple dictionary documents that can be independently edited or concurrently opened to generate a project wide report.
