Article on Architecture Modelling and ArchiMate

Why not read our new article related to Enterprise Architectural thinking and ArchiMate?

Connecting the Architectural world to the Operational World

Archimate Diagram ExampleWe can all agree that ArchiMate is a mechanism to model the architecture of an organisation. In this we mean we model the “types” of things in the organisation rather than actual instances of things. Our world is one of standard patterns and designs which can be implemented again and again. For instance, if we use construction as our example, we might hold a pattern library of standard design constructs. A door will be 37 inches wide and 6 feet and 8 inches high with 3 hinges at 10 inches from either end and one in the centre with a handle and catch placed 42 inches from the top. We can use this standard pattern in all our designs. We can have a standard pattern for a bathroom stating it must have a bath, shower, sink and lavatory, a door (to our standard pattern stated elsewhere), and any principles that govern this room such as electrical safety or min and max distances and any requirements we might place on the components. We can then build designs using these patterns. Our bathroom will have these components of these make and model, placed in these positions, connected in this way etc. We are not modelling instances of the bathroom traditionally.
