Configuration History

See change record for the TRAK metamodel at


Jobs usually have many roles - some will be specific to the job and some will be more generic, for example as an employee. If a single role occupies most of the time of an employee then it is likely that a Job will be created around that role.

Sponsor and Stakeholder are roles that occur frequently and ISO/IEC 42010 / IEEE 1471 uses them in the definition of architecture viewpoints. A method for the use of TRAK:Role in a MV-02 Architecture Design Record is provided in the MVp-02 commentary which allows the scope and concerns of a particular architectural task to be described.

Typical roles include:

  • Auditor
  • Bidder
  • Control Authority
  • Design Authority
  • Independent Safety Authority
  • Prime Contractor
  • Regulator
  • Subject Matter Expert
  • Supplier
  • System Authority

Master Architecture View

Any Role used within an architecture description of the system-of-interest must appear on a SV-01 Solution Structure View for the architecture description.

The SV-01 is the Master Architecture View for Role.
