[protege-discussion] Using Protege as a Software Requirements Database Tool

Not quite the same, but I am using Protege 3.3.1 to capture an  
Enterprise Architecture model that goes right down to the Software  
Architecture (components) and how these support application  
functionality. I've also got a lot of Physical technology architecture  
details with a large number of nodes - therefore a large number of  
instances. I've got a rather complex Class structure but Protege is  
handling this well.
In terms of presenting the contents of the model to wider audience, I  
have developed my own "reporting" capability to present slices through  
the model via an intranet site.
