Version & Date

* =  changed at 1.2.004

+ =  new at 1.2.004

The change history is derived from the definition of each MODAF view within the The MODAF Technical Standards (AcV) Viewpoint viewpoint document from

See MODAF Release History.


The Technical Standards Views Viewpoint* is one of the 7 MODAF Viewpoints.

From The MODAF Technical Standards Viewpoint:

The Technical Standards Viewpoint details the standards, rules, policy and guidance that are applicable to aspects of the architecture.

The Technical Standards Viewpoint provides 2 Technical Standard Views (TVs) that present both technical and non-technical standards - i.e. TVs apply to systems (e.g. standards, and protocols), AND operational activities (e.g. operational doctrine and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)). In addition they can be used for other non-technical standards, e.g. those associated with industry process.

The elements contained in the TVs will come from a number of sources including the policy setting organisations in MOD, and interoperability standards from the Sponsor of the architecture activity. The TVs should then be managed and updated throughout the acquisition lifecycle by the standardisation officers within Delivery Teams.

Configuration History

1.2.004 Name changed to Technical Standards Viewpoint

Originally Technical Standards Views Viewpoint


Name changed for consistency reasons so that the viewpoints are of the form ... Viewpoint - not ...View Viewpoint or Views Viewpoint AND ...Viewpoint as was previously the case.

The views are no longer purely technical and have had technical removed from their titles but the MODAF viewpoint retains this which is misleading as the views can define or describe any standard, not just technical ones.

With the technical qualifier removed these are views that could apply to any other viewpoint and therefore there seems little need for a Technical Viewpoint as it would be better to include these in the All Views Viewpoint.
