AORTA provides a model from Semantic transformations which gives a business user friendly functional breakdown of regulations.

AORTA also provides a simple model for storing regulatory text, and the functional breakdowns can therefore link to regulatory text.

AORTA also provides a model for test definitions which reference the functional breakdown so that test coverage can be measured.

AORTA also provides a model for tests, test input data, and expected results, which links to the SMCubes model, so it can represent input data and report data in the BIRD format.

AORTA uses a custom model for functional breakdowns, however we are currently looking at replacing this with a cutdown version of BPMN . We do not consider it a good idea to use all of BPMN as this would provide obstacles to providing good linkage to the Logical Data Model and technical transformation rules.
