Increment (dictionary item)
For automation interface information about an Increment, see Increment (automation interface).
An increment is a sub-set of a model that delivers part of a complete application. Models are divided into increments to provide early benefit to the user and to reduce risks involved in large models.
You can create an increment through the context menu of a Package: right-click the Package, point to New, point to UML, point to Use Cases, and then click Increment.
If you select the Proprietary\Increments folder in the Dictionary pane, the Contents pane displays the following information about each Increment in the model: Expected Delivery Date and Actual Delivery Date.
In the Modeler panes, a short-cut symbol on the Increment's icon indicates that the item is a stub.
The following sections provide information about how an Increment is used in the model. For more information about a property, item, model part or diagram, click it.
In addition to the standard properties, an Increment has these properties:
Actual Delivery Date (Actual Date Of Delivery through the automation interface)
Expected Delivery Date (Expected Date Of Delivery through the automation interface)
