OMG is a consortium of tool vendors, consultants such as Cephas, and end users
About 6 or 7 of these are used in a typical business project. Much complexity has been added to the specification in order to satisfy special needs of the developer community. OMG has defined multiple levels of conformance with the spec.

EA provides “lightweight” project management support through
Project estimates A comprehensive project estimation tool that calculates effort from use case and actor objects, coupled with project configurations defining the technical and environmental complexity of the work environment.
Resource management Allows the project manager to assign resources directly to model elements and track progress over time.
Risk management The Metrics and Estimations tool may be used to assign Risk to an element within a project. The interface allows the project manager to name the risk, define the type of risk, and give it a weighting.
Maintenance Allows the Project Manager to assign and track maintenance related work items to elements within EA. This enables the rapid capture and record keeping of issues, changes, defects and tasks.
