A Change element is a structured comment that contains information about requested changes to the system/model. This corresponds in some sense to a change in requirements for the current system. Enterprise Architect enables you to generate and handle Changes in much the same way as you can handle requirements (see the Requirements Management topic for more information).

You can link Changes using Realization connectors to model elements that implement the Change, and you can structure a hierarchy of changes using aggregation.
