UAF13 — Location Types

  • Key: UAF13-56
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Aerospace Corporation ( Dr. James Martin)
  • Summary:

    Location concept in dictionary is "determination" of the "place where something is". Would Location be a more accurate term for Location Holder concept? Location in UAF is currently enumerated with *geometric" parameters such as solid volume, surface, line, point, etc. However, Location is a more general concept.

    Sometimes the Operational Architecture uses concept of Platform as the "place where something is" rather than describing the location geometrically. A Platform could be thought of a special case of Location. Also, sometimes the "place where something is" will be called an Organizational Node (agnostic to an Organization resource per se).

    Make Location abstract with three kinds of Location elements: Physical Location (for current notion of Location), Platform (where something is mounted or situated), and Organizational Location (a place that has a definite purpose or a place that is responsible in an organizational sense).
