A Defect (or Issue) element is a structured comment that contains information about defects and issues that relate to the system or model. This corresponds in some sense to a failure to meet defined requirements for the current system. Enterprise Architect enables you to generate and handle Issues in much the same way as you can handle requirements (see the Requirements Management topic for more information).
You can link Issues using Realization connectors to model elements that are responsible for the defect. You can even structure a hierarchy of Issues using aggregation.
