Overview

The following is a brief list of some of the written work produced in various forms over the years.

Number Title Description Location Area(s)
10.1002/eng2.12168 ‘Using directed graphs to define viewpoints to keep a metamodel, an architecture framework and views using different modeling languages consistent’, Wiley Engineering Reports, vol. 2, no. 6, p. e12168, Jun. 2020 Use of directed graphs (node - relationship - node) to define viewpoints (specifications for views). Overview of the work to describe the TRAK architecture framnework, metamodel and viewpoints by creating a set of views against viewpoint deinitions. The underlying model is a graph stored in a Neo4J graph database. The paper includes examples of each viewpoint used together with the graph queries in CYPHER used to produce the views. Provides an introduction to architecture description, graphs and CYPHER. https://doi.org/10.1002/eng2.12168 MBSE, Architecture Description
3736126–001 ‘Architecture Description Viewpoints. Metamodel Description, Implementation and Model Changes’, Eclectica Systems Ltd, , Aug. 2019. Set of viewpoints (specifications for architecture views) which provide the means to 1) describe/define a metamodel; 2) define one or more viewpoints complete with rules for consistency and minimum view content; 3) describe changes to a model over time. Provides the parts needed to define the metamodel, viewpoints and rules for an architecture framework (and record changes to it within the model itself).. https://doi.org/10.13140/RG.2.2.14037.99049 MBSE, Architecture Description
Defence Systems. Spring 2011. Vol 13 No. 3. 'Enterprise Architecture and Systems Thinking – Realising Capability.' How Enterprise Architecture creates a lasting and living account of why a system is being acquired and how best to integrate it within the defence community. Discusses the similarity between the description of relationships within the defence estate, both organisations and hard systems and the system-thinking skillset. https://rusi.org/publication/rusi-defence-systems/enterprise-architecture-and-systems-thinking-realising-capability Architecture Description, Systems-Thinking,Enterprise Systems Engineering
