Throughout a design and development project there are many different tasks to be performed, which could be carried out either by one person or - more probably - by members of a team with different responsibilities. In either case, Enterprise Architect supports most - if not all - of the responsibilities you might have on your project.

Therefore, the next topics to explore depend on the work you normally do on a project.

The following list identifies a number of job roles that Enterprise Architect supports. For those that most resemble your role on a project, click on the title link to display a description of how that role might use Enterprise Architect, then click on the other links to explore some of the Enterprise Architect features of importance to the role.
