Currently the EPF metamodel is quite
strict, although we've had discussions about allowing user extensions (like
user-defined guidance types and role assignment types
to support RACI).
In the meantime you can put such information
in a table, as described in the following Rational Edge article by Mark
Another workaround (credit to Margaret
Hedstrom for this idea) - you could create a plug-in that has a contributing
work product for every work product in your library, and add the RACI information
as text to the "key considerations" field.
For example, if for the Vision work
product you want Architect and Stakeholder roles to be consulted, and Tester
and Developer to be informed, then
you could add the following text to
a contributing Vision work product.

[epf-dev] EPF Metamodel extensions
not sure this is the correct place to pose this question
but I am evaluating EPF for our needs and I ran into a snag. I can't find
a place to associate our RACI roles to a work product (responsible, accountable,
consulted and informed). I found a way to associate a role to a work product
via a responsible association.
Is there anyways I could expand EPF's metamodel to add
an accountable, consulted and informed category in the role's work product
