The scene: We have created our Conceptual data model using a technical term diagram. To ensure that the concepts are integrated into the process maps and all their relationships are captured I wanted to create a cluster pick list from these concepts in an IE Data Model. These clusters could them be used in the epc models capturing the end to end processes.

The problem: I cannot create the pick list as ARIS will not allow me to create the IE Data model using the concepts from the technical term diagram. Now I have had to create a mirror model pick list in IE Data model which has the names and definitions of the concepts in the pick list but not the relationships.

What do I need to do to be able to link the Conceptual data model in the technical term diagram to the IE data model pick list which can then be used in the epc? Do I need to re-model the Data model in a different model? Which one?
