Configuration History


In MODAF a (architecture) view is used as both a definition of an architecture view and the product of that definition. It differs in this respect from the ISO/IEC 42010 (IEEE 1471) definition of an architecture view.

A view provides a fragment of architecture description of the real world. In MODAF views are grouped into viewpoints.

The MODAF metamodel at 1.2.004 incorrectly equates MODAF::Architectural Product with IEEE1471::View - the latter is an architecture product but it is a response to an Architecture Viewpoint. In fact IEEE1471::View looks to be most closely related to MODAF::ProductOfView.
