From ‘The MODAF Technical Standards Viewpoint’ p4:

The time from initial concept to fielded capability may be very long. It is therefore necessary to be able to refer to standards which, although not ratified at the time of producing the architecture, will have an impact on the capability. This could be anything from expected changes in legislation around spectrum management to future environment and safety standards. Being able to refer to emerging standards also enables the architect to mitigate the risk of outmoded specifications - so called designed obsolescence.

  • Forecasting future changes in standards (informing project strategy).
  • Specifying standards that will have an impact on the architecture and the capability it is to deliver.

From ‘The MODAF Technical Standards Viewpoint’ p4:

The TV-2 presents a table of draft or emerging standards that are likely to have a bearing on the architecture or the capability being architected. As with TV-1 the standards may be technical or business related, and may include future legislation. All the same information that TV-1 presents may also be shown:

  • The version identifier of the standard (e.g.v1.1).
  • The ratification body responsible for the standard (e.g.ISO, NATO,MOD DEFSTAN,etc.).
  • The ratification date of the standard (in the case of TV-2,this is the forecast ratification date).
  • The URI of the website where the standard can be found.
  • The publisher of the standard, if different to the ratification body.
  • The elements in the architecture which conform to the standard.
  • Any other supporting information (e.g.service area),which would be captured as a comment on the standard in M3.
