I'm interested in the Top 10 of most used ArchiMate Elements.

My Top 10:
1. Business Actor
2. Business Process
3. Application Component
4. Business Role
5. Business Object

6. Data/Application Object
7. Application Interface
8. Business Value
9. Application Service
10. Location

I'm interested to see which elements are used the most, somekind of ranking.
If we use to many elements, it will be hard to sell a consistent story to the customers.

Hi,

Well, I don't think it's so simple as "which elements do you use the most". It all depends on the purpose(s) of your model and your stakeholders. You will certainly not provide too many details to CxO and focus on internal structure/behaviour in Business Layer and external structure/behaviour in Application Layer. This is the primary focus of viewpoints like Business Process, Application Usage...

But when the goal is to design something that will be built, you absolutly need (internal) details at both Application and Technology Layers.

So IMHO the answer is: it depends :-)
