MODAF with Enterprise Architect KickStart Model Development Workshop - N Days

CRaG Systems MODAF with Enterprise Architect KickStart Model Development Workshops provide focused, intensive workshops that get your project moving immediately. KickStart Hands-On Model Development teaches the concepts of the MODAF architecture framework by applying the methods directly to your system architecture using Sparx Systems' Enterprise Architect modelling tool, with valuable and practical benefits to your team. MODAF modelling methods are learned and retained better by the students since the example used is directly relevant to your organisation's business and system architecture and to the immediate project with no long theory classes before applying the methods.

The consultant shows the team how to develop whichever views of enterprise architecture are required including how to organise the views into an interconnected and cohesive whole. The model is constructed using industry best practice for each part of the model and the consultant teaches the necessary detail of the MODAF syntax and model structure as the model is developed. Students work either in teams or separately to develop further the models started by the consultant under his or her guidance. Sparx Enterprise Architect and MODAF 1.2 are used throughout. The models produced are sufficiently detailed to allow the students subsequently to complete them unaided.

Delegates will learn some or all of the following MODAF modelling skills as required:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the MODAF framework
  • The core MODAF concepts of Views, Viewpoints, View Categories and Viewpoint Linkages
  • How to model the All Views Viewpoint (AV) including AV1 & AV2 views
  • How to model the Strategic Viewpoint (SV) including StV-1 to StV-6 views
  • How to model the Operational Viewpoint (OV) including OV-1a to c, OV-2 to OV-5, OV-6a to c & OV-7 views
  • How to model the System Viewpoint (SV) including SV-1, SV-2a to c, SV-3 to SV-9, SV-10a to c, SV-11 & SV-12 views
  • How to model the Technical Standards Viewpoint (TV) including TV-1 & TV-2 views
  • How to model the Acquisition Viewpoint (AcV) including AcV-1 & AcV-2 views
  • How to model the Service Oriented Viewpoint (SOV) including SOV-1 to SOV-3, SOV-4a to c & SOV-5
  • How to link elements in different viewpoints to show, for example, how Capabilities in the Strategic Viewpoint are realised by elements in the Operational and System Viewpoints
  • How to organise the model to make elements re-useable across architectures taking into account cross-layer dependencies
  • How to model Architectural Views and Viewpoints appropriately for different Stakeholders
Delegates will learn some or all of the following Sparx Enterprise Architect skills as required:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the use of Enterprise Architect
  • How to generate and maintain documents from the different parts of the model
  • How to keep all the models of business and system architecture change-managed and traceable as part of an enterprise architecture development process
  • How to integrate external documents with the enterprise architecure model
  • How to use the project management capabilities available within Enterprise Architect
  • How to use the tool in a multi-user environment integrated with a version control system
