UAF13 — Information elements require better definition of relationships

  • Key: UAF13-97
  • Status: open   Implementation work Blocked
  • Source: Boeing ( Ms. Sharon Fitzsimmons)
  • Summary:

    Current implementation of information elements (both Operational and Resource) does not allow for decomposition, which would allow for multiple layers of fidelity to be represented in a model. Most information elements in a real system are "decomposable" in the sense that they can be represented by parts (in the case of a document, multiple data elements may be represented in one Operational element; in the case of a Resource information element, headers and multiple payloads may be represented within a higher level "information" element. The data model is particularly important within the EA reprsenetation of a system.
    Generalization is also needed within the information elements; flow properties on intefaces should accept elements of a less generalized implementation.
