A Tailoring of the Unified Architecture Framework’s Meta-Model for the Modeling of Systems-of-Systems
Being used by single companies and by coalitions of governments at the same time, Architecture Frameworks have spread widely as a key tool for the enablement of the Model Based Systems Engineering approach. The Unified Architecture Framework, promoted by the Object Management Group, is rapidly emerging as the reference framework to describe Enterprise Architecture, providing a standard representation for both defense and non-defense organizations’ architecture descriptions. The work described in the present paper concerns the implementation of a simplified meta-model, derived as a tailoring of the Unified Architecture Framework’s full meta-model, aimed at allowing the usage of the UAF for the description of System Architectures, rather than Enterprise Architectures. The main UAF View Domains concerned with Systems having the characteristics of Systems-of-Systems (Operational, Strategic and Resources), will be analyzed and a solution will be shown to allow a simple implementation of SysML models, as an architectural description of such Systems. A study case will also be presented, developed as a joint effort of Leonardo and Aster for the modeling of naval Combat Systems.
