Introduction: Generate a report for a UML model

This tutorial shows you how to generate a report for a UML model.
You can use reports to organize and present information about models. The report design in this tutorial generates a report that provides a statistical summary of a model and its classes. The report design applies a transformation that simplifies the contents of the model before the report is generated.

This tutorial might require some optionally installable components. To ensure that you installed the appropriate optional components, see the System requirements list.
