Managing Shared Assets using EA RAS
By Phil Chudley Dunstan Thomas Consulting
Many organisations work in multiple teams utilising shared assets for individual teams as well as global assets shared by all teams. If a single repository is used for all teams and all assets, controlling visibility and access to these assets becomes very problematic. Although not a new feature of Enterprise Architect, the Reusable Asset Service (RAS), provides a solution to managing assets for multiple teams. This presentation describes the issues with sharing assets in a single repository and the solution using a RAS. The description of the RAS will describe the infrastructure required as well as the structure and use of a RAS. The presentation will conclude with a demonstration of multiple projects using a single RAS. This demonstration will be presented using EA version 16 64 bit.
