Part of the Solution Perspective.

Other Frameworks

  • DODAF - no representation of Contract at 2.02. DODAF does support the notion of parties to an agreement as a tuple with the DM2 Logical data model but there is no entity that the architect can use that represents a contract.
  • MODAF - no representation of Contract at 1.2.004.
  • NAF - no representation of Contract at NAF 3.0 (3.1 unknown but unlikely if MODAF doesn’t)
