In my first post and second post on the topic of Entity Inheritance hierarchies I showed ways in which the customisation features of PowerDesigner are useful when dealing with them.

If managing complex hierarchies is one of your modelling concerns (for example, if you’re using the FIBO CDM or LDM), help is at hand. A model extension is available from Metadata Matters that provides a set of useful new properties (known in PowerDesigner as Extended Attributes) to help you manage your hierarchies, as well as the menu options to ensure that they stay up to date.

The first online PowerDesigner training course is available from Metadata Matters. The course is called Using the Excel Import Wizard. The course is based on a workshop I ran at a conference a few years ago – it’s about the Excel Import wizard, a feature that I know a lot of people use, and some people have problems with.
