Architecture Description Dictionary View


Part of the TRAK Management Perspective and one of the 24 TRAK architecture view types.

Applications or Uses

  • dictionary / definition for each architecture description element described
  • common / shared understanding with others e.g. other organisations
  • common “pick list” for architecture description elements
  • preserves knowledge / makes it easier to understand later on


Easiest method of production is often a database query if the architecture modelling tool supports this. It does, however, assume that the architect has provided a description or definition for each architecture description element!
