Overview

The NSOV-5 Service Behaviour subview is part of the NATO Service-Oriented View and one of the 47 NATO Architecture Framework subviews.

Version & Date

Version 3.0

See NAF Release History.

Purpose

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3, CHAPTER 4, Section 4.6.6

The purpose of the Service Behaviour subview is to specify the function and behaviour of individual services.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Definition

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3, CHAPTER 4, Section 4.6.6

Behavioural views under NSOV-5 include detailed activity models as well as state charts and sequence diagrams to model the sequencing and timing of interactions between services.

The products of this subview are similar to the behavioural subviews of NOV-6 Operational Activity Sequence & Timing Description, and NSV-10 Systems Rules, Sequence & Timing Description. The approach taken in NOV-6 and NSV-10 is applied to the NSOV-5 subview to offer a behavioural view on the concept of services.

Covered by NATO release conditions.


From the NATO Architecture Framework v3, CHAPTER 5, Section 5.2.5.4

This view shows how operational activities can be supported by various services, i.e. within a given scenario, certain defined operational activities within nodes defined as part of NOV-2 can be supported by a given set of services.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Comments

The chapter 5 description uses the term ‘view’ when it should properly use ‘subview’ as is used in the chapter 4 definition.

Other Frameworks

From p15 of the MODAF Service Oriented Viewpoint - MODAF SOV-4c Service Interaction Specification View:

NAF v3 does show sequence diagrams in NSOV-5, however these appear to show services being orchestrated – this would be shown in OV-6c in MODAF.
