UAF Training, Unified Architecture Framework

UAF Training covers the Unified Architecture Framework which offers a structured approach for managing the complexity of systems of systems engineering within an organization. It also provides an infrastructure to ensure complete and correct specification of systems integration using various techniques such as engineering analysis, traceability and metrics.

System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) methodology is heavily used in U.S. Department of Defense applications, but is increasingly being applied to non-defense related problems such as architectural design of problems in air and auto transportation, healthcare and global communication networks.

SoSE is related to systems engineering, however, where traditional systems engineering optimizes an individual system, SoSE optimizes a network of systems working together to accomplish program objectives.

Systems of systems engineering and the Unified Architecture Framework became necessary because of increasing complexity and rising costs, which has made it critical to ensure that systems are being developed that can talk to each other and meet the overarching capabilities that they were intended to achieve.

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.

The Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) is based on the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF™ (UPDM™). UAF defines ways of representing an enterprise architecture that enables stakeholders to focus on specific areas of interest in the enterprise while retaining sight of the big picture.

UAF meets 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 Defense (MOD), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other defense organizations.

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.

Some of UAF’s important characteristics include:

  • Providing built-in analysis techniques
  • New technologies can be applied to extend the use of UAF architectures
  • Improves interoperability
  • Improves the discovery and reuse of architectural artifacts
