Rose is a great tool. Like others that are designed to help you manage
processes, working with it can be cumbersome. I don't have tons of experience
with it--but I loved the use case tools and working with it helped me document
the structure of the software design by capturing the "trees" of objects, etc. I
didn't find the documentation feature to be outstanding. As always, I counsel
asking, "What do you hope to gain by [you fill it in] ?' if your management
starts to think that it's a good addition. If it's "just 'cause", then I'd say
work with the diagrams and features that appeal to you and don't mess with
whatever publishing tool you've gotten to work.
