Unified Architectural Framework (UAF) Seminar

Human beings are integral to today’s complex systems of systems — this is the overriding reason the Object Management Group (OMG) released the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF), a model-based system engineering (MBSE) approach that moves the architecture modeling effort to one that is an integral part of systems engineering.

The Object Management Group is an international, open membership, not-for-profit computer industry standards consortium with representation from government, industry and academia. OMG Task Forces develop enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies and an even wider range of industries.

Unified Architecture Framework has become a very popular upgrade with both the Department of Defense (DoD) as well as commercial organizations. That’s because UAF  has standardized a set of Human Views (called Personnel Views in UAF) into its system of systems framework, allowing the human aspects to be considered in conjunctions with the rest of the architecture.

UAF Personnel views are not standalone, but like SysML allows users to interface with specialty to analyze human aspects in both quantitative and qualitative ways. By taking this integrated approach UAF permits systems to be fit for purpose by including the human impact and contribution to overall system performance.

The Unified Architecture Framework also came about because of the need to move to a single world‐wide Architecture Framework. Before UAF, the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), the UK’s Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF) and the NATO Architecture Framework (NAF) were not exactly on the same page.

Department of Defense (DoD) Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK’s Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF) (UPDM) provides a standard means of representing DoDAF, MODAF and NATO Architecture Framework (NAF). Some of the concepts in the frameworks had the same name but different definitions, and the difficulty in cross-walking the concepts among the different frameworks led to miscommunication between architects using the different frameworks.

Essentially, differences in DoDAF, MODAF and NAF made it difficult to match the metamodel one to one.
