From The MODAF System Viewpoint (SV) p18:

An SV-3 product allows a quick overview of all the resource interactions specified in one or more SV-1 diagrams. The matrix format supports a rapid assessment of potential commonalities and redundancies or, if fault-tolerance is desired, the lack of redundancies.

The SV-3 can be organised in a number of ways to emphasise the association of groups of system pairs in context with the architecture’s purpose.

SV-3 is similar to an N2-type matrix, where the resources are listed in the rows and columns of the matrix and each cell indicates an interaction between resources if one exists.
