Business Analysis Outline
This has simple, mostly table-style formatting for the EA elements most commonly used in business analysis. It only lists use cases, rather than printing all their details (see Business Analysis - Detailed below)

Table
Prints the Alias, Name and Priority
Actor
graphic

Use Case
graphic
Table
Print the Use Case reference (Alias), Name, Description and a link to the actors who use the use case.
 
Using EA to hold details of which Actors use which use cases means the use case text doesn't need to hold a list of actors which is manually maintained.

Inline
For this example, business processes are given this stereotype, so we can control the formatting. They are formatted as Inline, because we've chosen to print their diagram, and sub-Activities
Activity
graphic
Table
The lowest-level parts of the business process. OK to print these in a table, as they have no sub-elements.
We also print the previous and next activities, to show how related element details can be used.
ActivityPartition

Table
This is what EA calls the swimlanes which are used in business process diagrams. Renamed to 'Team' in this example.
Decision
graphic
Table
Shows where decisions are being made in the business process flow. Quite a low level of detail. Also shows previous & next activities
