Danial Ashmun, P.E. on System Architecture

Abstract: Increasing complexity is at the heart of the most difficult problems facing today’s systems engineering and architecting. Architecture methods and frameworks are a means to show the system components, the externally visible properties of those components, and the relationships (e.g. the behavior) between them. Architects use various business methods, analytical techniques and conceptual tools to understand and document the structure and dynamics of an enterprise. This briefing provides a general overview of the primary architectural methods and frameworks, such as DoDAF, TOGAF, FEAF & ATAM in general usage today.
