Abstract: Architecture frameworks continue to evolve. Taking industry demand into account and addressing changing landscape of existing domain specific architecture frameworks, in September of 2013, a Request for Proposal for Unified profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM 3.0) (later renamed to Unified Architecture Framework (UAF)) was created. Since the issue of the request for proposal (RFP), UPDM 3.0 working group identified the list of requirements. To name a few: Architecture Modeling Support for Defense, Industry, and government Organizations, support of Security Domain, Human Systems Integration, Support of Systems of Systems (SoS) Life Cycle Processes and Analyses. Since then four years past and a brand new UAF 1.0 became an official Object Management Group (OMG) standard and is about to become ISO/IEC 19517 standard. What this new architecture framework (AF) is all about? How is it different from other AFs? Is it just a synthesis of a legacies? Or is it a modern technology combining the best practices of an old with a new and modern?
This presentation explores UAF, answering the fundamental questions above and putting a specific focus to answer the questions below:
1. What kind of problems solving UAF is applicable for?
2. Is UAF a replacement for NATO architecture framework (NAF)?
3. How UAF is related to model-based systems engineering (MBSE)?
These and many more questions are answered in this presentation by giving the real-world UAF application examples to architect systems of systems in various industry domains.
