8th December 2017


The PrVp-01 - Procurement Structure Viewpoint is part of the TRAK Procurement Perspective and one of the 24 TRAK Architecture Viewpoints.

The PrVp-01 describes project structure. It is the perspective equivalent to the CVp-01 Concept Need Viewpoint and SVp-01 Solution Structure viewpoints.

The PrVp-02 describes project structure and its relationship to the organisation that owns it.

Stakeholders Addressed

  • Acquirer of Solution

Optional Tuples


If any of these optional metamodel elements are added then the appropriate TRAK Master Architecture View must be provided.

A PrV-01 view shall contain:

  • at least one Project (the subject of the view)
  • any project parts are connected together using ‘Project has part Project’

If it is known what organisation (or part of an organisation) is in control of the project then:

  • every Project must be connected to an Organisation using ‘Organisation governs Project’

Note: Where there is a project hierarchy structure it is assumed that the same organisation governs every project in the hierarchy below the point at which the relationship is made unless an additional explicit relationship is shown. This removes the need to connect every project in the hierarchy.

Consistency Rules

If Organisation owns Project is made in the PrV-01:The Organisation that governs the Project cannot itself be part of the Solution since the former is part of the model of the business and the latter will be part of the model of the thing delivered or developed. The governing organisation might well provide the resource to deliver the project but it is a different organisation to that in the solution - it is important to keep these 2 models distinct.

  • { organisation in Organisation governs Project}


  • { organisation IN





This also comes into play if System is configured with Organisation is made in the SV-01

Further rules are applied through the TRAK Bye Laws

Configuration History

The TRAK Viewpoints project on Sourceforge ( maintains a version-controlled repository. The change record is at


The PrV-01 is the master architecture view for Project.

It does for Project what the SV-01 does for Resource in the solution perspective.
