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.
Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Business Analysts, System Analysts, Developers, Project Managers and Support Staff with at least 2 years experience. This workshop is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
The client is advised to provide adequate documentation regarding the overall project goals and functionality of the project to be modelled, under non-disclosure if necessary, at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the training, if possible. If no project documentation is available, then a stakeholder with a suitable knowledge of the problem domain should be available to take part in the workshop sessions. Stakeholder involvement in problem domain modelling sessions is always encouraged.
Courses normally start at 9.30am on the first day, 9.00am on subsequent days and finish at 5.00pm each day with an hour for lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and again in the afternoon. Course attendance is normally limited to 12 students.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, refreshments, high resolution projector or large screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with at least the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool. For a discussion of the use of modelling tools, please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. A printed course manual with copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions will be provided for each student. For a full discussion of on-site course logistics please see On-Site Course and Workshop Logistics.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate conferencing service that allows the instructor to join the online meeting, share their screen, talk to each and every student on the course and view their screen if necessary to support their individual modelling work. They should also provide a computer for each student loaded with at least the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool. For a discussion of the use of modelling tools, please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions will be provided electronically. For a full discussion of remote course logistics please see Remote Course and Workshop Logistics.
