After almost a year of work, we are happy to announce the next major release of KnowEnterprise. This is a major release of KnowEnterprise that introduces an entirely new diagram engine making most KnowEnterprise diagrams much smoother (no “Drop Places” anymore!) and faster to use. In order to adapt to the new usability style introduced by Artisan Studio 8.0, the context menus of KnowEnterprise have been entirely reorganized. In combination with Studio 8.0’s new PLE feature, KnowEnterprise now also supports comprehensive product line engineering. Furthermore, this release of KnowEnterprise also introduces a new major release of KnowDocs™ providing an even increased flexibility on controlling document generation. In addition to this, this release of KnowEnterprise provides the following new major features:

  • Full support for the Business Motivation model to BMM 1.2 including support for Offerings and Liabilities
  • Visions, Goals, and Objectives may now be shown on all diagrams to indicate their satisfaction
  • Noun Concepts may now be turned into many other model element types
  • Requirements may now be specialized and extended support for «trace», «verify» and «satisfy» dependencies
  • Support for Issues and Change Requests extended
  • xUML Use Cases as well as Test Cases now support local variables and inherited parameters
  • Pattern Family Diagrams are more formalized
  • PSM Diagrams are merged into Architecture Diagrams
  • Individual versions of the same Application Types, Database Types, Rulebase Types and Document Types supported
  • An Aspect Weaver has been introduced to support advanced configuration and extension of KnowEnterprise
  • The “IT Model” has been generalized to a “Systems Model”
  • Many more “Populate” commands are available on diagrams
