WinA&D is scalable to large projects, multiple users, distributed team development and the integration of thousands of documents across the development process.
A software designer can choose the best mix of software models and notations for their specific development project. WinA&D supports process, data, class, state, structure, object and task models with dozens of popular notations and hundreds of customization options.
