Version 1.2.004.

See MODAF Release History.

Definition

One of the MODAF Stereotypes and part of the MODAF System Viewpoint.


From the MODAF Metamodel (M3):

A process performed by a Resource.

Note1: Contrast with OperationalActivity, where the actor performing the activity is not known (i.e. it is just a logical node). A Function is implementation-specific.

Note2: Should the Function be specific to one usage of a type of system, then the usageContext is specified by a reference to the composite structure property ResourceComposition typed by the system.

Comments

At MODAF version 1.1 there used to be a Functional Resource stereotype which limited the Resource Types which could perform a function to Capability Configuration, Role, System - see MODAF Release History. Although this doesn’t seem to be in version 1.2 it doesn’t show as a deletion in the history and it still shows in the definition of Capability Configuration. The examples in the MODAF System View document don’t show enough to be able to positively establish that any Resource Type can perform a function.

1.2.003 Definition:

A composite structure representing the physical and human resources (and their interactions) in an enterprise.

An activity which is specified in context of the resource (human or machine) that performs it.

Note1: Contrast with OperationalActivity, where the actor performing the activity is not known (i.e. it is just a logical node). A Function is implementation-specific.

Note2: Should the Function be specific to one usage of a type of system, then the usageContext is specified by a reference to the composite structure property ResourceComposition typed by the system.
