Traceability Suite Add-In for Enterprise Architect

March 31st, 2023
Unfortunately, we have decided to discontinue selling this Add-In product. Thank you so much for your support. If you are users of yearly licenses and want to extend, we will offer another extra 1 year license for free. Please ask us with your purchase number.


Typical Case Why Traceability Suite Add-In is Necessary

We use Activity diagrams to find and clarify Blocks' features (i.e., responsibilities). In the Activity diagrams, Blocks are placed as Partitions, and Actions on each Partition are features of the related Block. There are no 'connectors' between Actions and Blocks, so Enterprise Architect's built-in Relationship Matrix cannot show these relations.

Our 'MatrixEx' in the Traceability Suite Add-In can show these kinds of relations.


The Traceability Suite Add-In for Enterprise Architect contains the following 3 Add-Ins.

  • MatrixEx - supports more complex conditions, enhancement view
  • Traceability Map - show traceability graphically, including diagram placement
  • ElementUsageEx - better usage investigation, especially for many Classifiers and Instances combinations like SysML models


MatrixEx offers extended features of the Relationship Matrix feature of Enterprise Architect. There are many enhancements, including:

  • Show package structure hierarchy
  • Show multiple types of elements and connectors
  • Show alias of elements
  • Show number of connectors in each row and column
  • Specify two or more packages from the Browser window by drag and drop
  • Save as Excel, CSV, PDF, etc.
  • Support complex relationships
  • Hide part of elements/packages
  • Create/delete connector by double-click, save changes at once

Traceability Map

Traceability Map offers a graphical view of the Traceability window of Enterprise Architect. You can open and extend any branches as you want. When you select an element on the map, the element is selected in the Browser window, and all windows like the Properties show information about the selected element.

You can customize which type of elements/connectors are traced in detail. You can choose types defined in MDG Technology (UML Profile). You can select types for upper/lower direction separately, too.


ElementUsageEx offers extended features of Enterprise Architect's 'Element Usage' feature. It works in the Add-In window, so you do not need to close/open switching target elements. Furthermore, this Add-In can find more usage than the original feature.

  • from a Trigger, find Transitions in StateMachine diagrams
  • from a Signal, find Actions in Activity diagrams
  • from a Block in SysML, find all typed elements like Ports and Parts, even though they are inherited elements
  • when you select an instanced element (e.g., a Lifeline in Sequence diagrams), the Add-In shows information about its Classifier
