Master Architecture View

Any Architecture View used within an architecture description of the system-of-interest must appear on a MV-02 Architecture Design Record View for the architecture description.

The MV-02 is the Master Architecture View for Architecture View.

Where does the architecture view live in the AD or model? From an architecture description perspective it is always important to have a clear idea of what the system-of-interest is that is to be modelled. For example, is it a product or is is the business that produces the product? The two will contain quite different architecture elements and will be contained (organised) into different packages or folders within any repository. The Architecture View(s) will therefore be held in different places.

An Architecture View is specified by an Architecture Viewpoint (in accordance with ISO/IEC 42010).
