BigLever Software’s Enterprise Architect/Gears Bridge™ enables engineering organizations to utilize Enterprise Architect MDD models as configurable shared assets within their Gears production lines, and Gears PLE constructs as first-class systems and software engineering mechanisms for managing product line diversity in Enterprise Architect MDD models.

More specifically, the Bridge allows users to:

  • Use PLE mechanisms to manage the diversity for a full product line in a single, consolidated MDD model, as a highly scalable alternative to cloned copies or one-size-fits-all UML and SysML models.
  • Automatically configure Enterprise Architect models for different products by making feature choices in a Gears feature profile.
  • Convert Enterprise Architect model elements into Gears variation points to encapsulate the PLE diversity for that model element, without extending or complicating UML and SysML models.
  • Use one or more Enterprise Architect models – either packages or projects – in a larger collection of shared assets across the full engineering lifecycle for a product line portfolio.
  • Perform integrated PLE operations – such as product configuration, variation point editing and variation impact analysis – directly from Enterprise Architect menus.
