Enterprise Architect Fundamentals Training

Despite the fact that many of the people working on the UML Profile for Systems Engineering talked about using models to discover system requirements, most of the methodologies and tutorials talk about interfacing with textual requirement management tools like DOORS and importing and exporting requirements to and from models captured in modeling tools.
