Lesson 1: Create an impact analysis diagram

In this lesson, you search for an artifact, and then run Impact Analysis from one of the items in the search results to explore related lifecycle artifacts.


  1. Log on to IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights (ENI).
    In a web browser type http://server:port/relm/web.
  2. On the My Projects tab, click and open the required project.
  3. Search for the artifact to focus on.
    1. Click in the Search artifacts box, type devices, and click Enter.
