Overview

The NSV-5 System Function to Operational Activity Traceability Matrix subview is part of the NATO System View.

It is 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 4.7.5

A Systems Function to Operational Activity Traceability Matrix depicts the mapping of operational activities to system functions and thus identifies the transformation of an operational need into a purposeful responsibility assigned to a system - i.e. how the system function supports the conducting of the operational activity.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Definition

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3, CHAPTER 4, Section 4.7.5

Operational activities do not necessarily map one-to-one to system functions. Therefore, NSV-5 forms an integral part of the eventual complete mapping from operational capabilities to systems. NSV-5 is an explicit link between the NATO Operational View and the NATO System View. The operational activities are drawn from NOV-5. The system functions are drawn from NSV-4.

The relationship between operational activities and system functions can also be expected to be many-to-many (i.e., one operational activity may relate to multiple system functions, and one system function may relate to multiple operational activities).

Covered by NATO release conditions.

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3, CHAPTER 5, Section 5.2.6.5

The data in an NSV-5 can include:

 

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Comments

A Functional Resource may be a System, Capability Configuration or Role. A System on its own is not permitted to realise a capability - see the definition of Capability Configuration.
