UAF13 — EnterprisePhase Definition Defines a State Not a Phase

  • Key: UAF13-31
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Eclectica Systems Ltd ( Nic Plum)
  • Summary:

    Definition: 'A type of a current or future state of the enterprise.'

    This looks as thought it's a legacy MODAF 1.2.003 definition.

    1) A state is an abstract reference to a set of property values or conditions. A phase is a reference to a duration. This would be better defined as a distinct stage in the life? of an Enterprise. The problem is otherwise that there is no connection between the element name and definition.
    2) 'current' or 'future' is irrelevant and incomplete - if it occurs in the past is it therefore no longer an EnterprisePhase? The definition shouldn't depend on a particular time value.
    3) 'type of' shouldn't be in the definition. All the elements in a metamodel are types so it cannot form part of any differentiating feature.
