MVp-01 - Architecture Description Dictionary Viewpoint




8th December 2017


The MVp-01 - Architecture Description Dictionary Viewpoint is part of the Management Perspective and one of the 24 TRAK Architecture Viewpoints.

The MVp-01 Architecture Description Dictionary Viewpoint provides a way of defining the architecture elements used in an architecture description so that it can be understood. It is also therefore an aid to portability, exchange and re-use.

It is the specification for the TRAK::MV-01 Architecture Description Dictionary architecture view.
