Architecture Modeling with UAF (Unified Architecture Framework), UAF Workshop

Architecture Modeling with UAF (Unified Architecture Framework), UAF Workshop, is a 2-daypractical workshop covers the architecture modeling aspects of Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®), based on the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF™ (UPDM™).

Participants will learn how UAF defines ways of representing an enterprise architecture that enables stakeholders working with complex systems or System of Systems (SoS) to focus on specific areas of interest in the enterprise while retaining sight of the big picture.

UAF architecture models provide a means to develop an understanding of the complex relationships that exist between organizations, systems, and systems-of-systems and enable the analysis of these systems to ensure that they meet the expectations of the user community.

This 2-day course will guide the participants and the architecture practitioners how to apply the concepts and methods covered by UAF framework in their architecture projects.

Participants will work with UAF models, supporting current DoDAF/MODAF/NAF requirements. UAF rules are used to enable users to create consistent enterprise architectures (as models) based on generic enterprise and system concepts with rich semantics. These models then become the repositories from which various views can be extracted.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this workshop, the participants will:

  • Learn the basics of Unified Architecture Framework (UAF)
  • Learn how UAF provides an infrastructure to ensure complete and correct specification of systems integration using various techniques such as engineering analysis, traceability, and metrics.
  • Architect and model with UAF to enable stakeholders to focus on specific areas of interest in the enterprise while retaining sight of the big picture
  • Get familiar with UAF and the specific business, operational and systems-of-systems integration
  • Work with basics of UAFP 1.0 – Unified Architecture Framework Profile (UAFP)
  • Define a common approach for describing, presenting, and comparing DoD enterprise architectures
  • Facilitate the use of common principles, assumptions and terminology of UAF
  • Ensure that architecture descriptions can be compared and related across organizational boundaries, including Joint and multi-national boundaries
  • Produce standard UAF models using DoDAF/MODAF/NAF products as well as commercial extensions
  • Leverage cross-industry, standards-based approaches (e.g., MDA, UML, SysML) to enhance tool and architecture data interoperability
