Is there a way to generate a Matrix Model of responsibilities and roles automatically from EPCs (i.e. organizational elements vs. functions)?

I appreciate your kind assistance

unfortunately there is no model generation possible with a matrix model as target. The easiest way is, create an empty matrix model, and drag and drop your EPCs into this model. After this step, the matrix contains all objects. Then you can again drag and drop some of the objects into the column header (if you ahve dropped the model into the row header before). With the controls below (or with the dialog which pops up) you can then filter those symbols and connections which you are interested in.


Hope this will help.

I've created an ARIS Report that creates it automatically.

If you need it, please contact me.

Hello Ignacio,

I am trying to create/run a role matrix report whereas I need information Roles and SAP Function Types on EPC model and Screens(Transaction Codes) from the FAD models.  I have been unsuccessful in getting this informaiton for a matrix.  It appears that you have written a report for this.  If you could please share I would greatly appreciate it.

Please try this script (in Spanish & English). It assumes some conventions, it's customizable by code.

Has the following Matrices (Function excludes Process Interface):

- Function - Risk

- Function - System (system application type / Module type)

- Position - Function (org unit / position, person, group, person type)

- Risk - Control (modeled in a Business Control Diagram contained in the process group)

- Function - SAP Transaction (Screen)

You must start this report on the "Process" group (VACD or EPC) and works better if you have one group by model.

I have sent it you to your email.
