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

This is allied to IEEE1471 where generic concerns are addressed through a Viewpoint (specification). Individual Architectural views address specific concerns.The type of concern identified in the scope attribute are:

  • ‘Not Specified’ - default
  • ‘Architecture’ - related to the real-world thing being described
  • ‘Architecture description’ - related to how the real world thing is represented e.g. might relate to patterns, templates, modelling constructs
  • ‘Achitecture Framework’ - a problem with the model due to the TRAK framework construct or definition
  • ‘Task’ - a concern about the task
