Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) Fundamentals Training

Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) Fundamentals training covers the fundamentals of UAF which is based on the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF™ (UPDM™).

The UAF standard is based on the Object Management Group® (OMG®) Unified Modeling Language™ (UML®) 2.0 and the Systems Modeling Language™ (SysML®) standards.

The Unified Architecture Framework offers a structured and organized Model of Models (MoM) approach for managing the complexity of systems of systems engineering (SoSE) within the organization in different levels of abstraction. 

UAF is based on UPDM 3.0 and the UML®/SysML® in military communities. Value propositions are to develop standardized and consistent enterprise architectures based on the U.S. Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF).

UAF requirements are derived from DoDAF 2.02 and MoDAF military frameworks as well as the NAF (NATO Architecture Framework). 

UAF architecture models provide a means to develop an understanding of the complex systems and the 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.

UAF supports current DoDAF/MODAF/NAF requirements and can evolve to meet future needs:

  • produce standard 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
  • MDA foundation enables UAF to evolve with DoDAF v2 and beyond (i.e,. security, human factors)
  • UAF is methodology-agnostic (structured, OO, etc.)
  • UAF provides a set of rules 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.

Unified Architecture Framework

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. 
  • Learn how to use UAF and ways of representing an enterprise architecture enabling 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 needs of commercial and industrial enterprises as well as the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other defense organizations.
  • Basics of UAFP 1.0 – Unified Architecture Framework Profile (UAFP).
