Course Description

The NATO Architecture Framework (NAF) provides guidance for developing and describing Enterprise Architectures. The architecture description can cover many aspects, including capability, operational, system, technical, performance, services provided, and evolution over time. HOPEX NAF brings more than 25 years of enterprise architecture modeling and process optimization expertise to serve the needs of large system architecture descriptions.

Expected Benefits

  • Use NATO System Views (NSV) to describe the systems and interconnections between systems which support NATO processes.
  • Use NATO Technical Views (NTV) to use and define standards.
  • Use NATO Program Views (NPV) to plan programs and projects to realize the systems expected by the architecture.
  • Leverage on NATO Service Views to establish a service-oriented style for system design.

How the course is organized

This course alternates theoretical presentations on Enterprise Architecture for NAF with the production of a real case scenario to enable a better understanding of the method and tool. This course is delivered by an experienced MEGA Consultant, who is knowledgeable in proper modelling techniques and a expert in the use of HOPEX NAF.
