Title

CVp-04 - Concept Activity to Capability Mapping Viewpoint

Version

7

Date

8th December 2017

Overview

The CVp-04 Concept Activity to Capability Mapping Viewpoint is part of the TRAK Concept Perspective and one of the 24 TRAK Architecture Viewpoints.

It provides a trace from the Concept Activity to the Enterprise capability(ies) supported by that concept activit(ies).

Stakeholders Addressed

  • Owner of Enterprise
  • Maintainer of Enterprise
  • Developer of Enterprise
  • Builder of Enterprise
  • Developer of Concept
  • Owner of Concept

Concerns Addressed

How/are concept activities sufficient to deliver capability?

Description

Describes how the concept activities relate to the enterprise capabilities needed.

This enables the following problems to be identified:

  • capabilities required by an enterprise that aren’t supported by any concept activity. This might lead to nothing being developed to deliver the capability.
  • concept activities that aren’t needed.

Well-Formedness

A CV-04 view shall contain:

  • at least one Node (the subject of the view)
  • every Node must be connected to at least one Concept Activity (using ‘Node conducts Concept Activity’)
  • at least one Enterprise
  • every Enterprise must be connected to at least one Capability (using ‘Enterprise requires Capability’)
  • every Concept Activity must be connected to at least one Capability (using ‘Concept Activity supports Capability’), if not then a Concern*
  • every Capability must be connected to at least one Concept Activity, (using ‘Concept Activity supports Capability’), if not then a Concern*

* Note:  The purpose of the viewpoint is to identify unmapped capabilities and unmatched concept activities. Unmapped items are to be flagged by connecting to a Concern identifying this concern and reported on in the MV-02. As items are mapped on this view they are disconnected from the Concern.

Presentation

  • Table or Matrix (row/column headings = Node, Concept Activity, Capability, Enterprise, Description)
  • Block diagram (Node, Concept Activity, Enterprise, Capability  = block, TRAK relationship = line with direction indicator)

Note: Any unmapped concept activity or capability as far as the subject pair (particular Node and Enterprise) being described represents a concern.

Comments

As a mapping view, the CV-04 is not a master architecture view.
