21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)
Prerequisites : Knowledge in Modeling with UML or SysML is beneficial but not necessarily required as each model based view of the architecture will be explained using examples of the case study.
Participant Profiles : Enterprise Architects, System Architects, Business Analysts, System Analysts, Software Designers
Objective : This course aims at helping attendees understand how to put in practice the UAF and NAF enterprise architecture frameworks.
Understanding concepts of the UAF 1.1 in the context of the NATO NAF v4 Architecture Framework is very beneficial as the Domain Meta-model (DMM) of UAF describes various stakeholder concerns associated with a system, such as security, information or measurements through a set of predefined viewpoints and then mapped to the corresponding views in NAFv4.
On the other hand, the Architecture Stages of the NATO NAFv4 Methodology helps to understand how to make use efficiently of the views of the UAF to ensure coherence and completeness while enabling traceability from high-level goals until personal and physical resources that need be deployed to realize them.
Concepts and techniques explained during the course are progressively applied by the attendees using an end-to-end case study and different exercises on it.
Format of the Course
- Interactive lecture and discussion.
- Lots of exercises and practice.
- Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
