UAF13 — Architecture is not an Agent nor a Performer

  • Key: UAF13-51
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Aerospace Corporation ( Dr. James Martin)
  • Summary:

    An architecture is defined as "fundamental concepts or properties of an entity in its environment and governing principles for the realization and evolution of this entity and its related life cycle processes" [ISO 42020] An Architecture has no "agency", i.e., an architecture cannot do anything since it is a property of the thing that is being architected. Therefore, Architecture cannot be a kind of Operational Agent since an architecture cannot be "capable to perform" operational activities.

    Change Operational Architecture to Operational Configuration. Change Architecture to Configuration. Change Resource Architecture to Resource Configuration. Add Architecture as new separate element and add relationship Configuration <has> Architecture. Architecture is still <described by> Architectural Description. Make Operational Architecture a Capable Element and likewise for Resource Architecture and Service Architecture. Add Service Architecture to Figure 9:130 in DMM since it is missing.

    See attached slides.
