UAF 1.0

Unified Architecture Framework

Capture your Architectural Vision


Build reliable, well understood systems using UAF 1.0 and Enterprise Architect

Incorporated within Enterprise Architect 13, the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) provides support to specific frameworks, such as DoDAF, MODAF, UPDM, NAF and others. Support of UAF is is built into Enterprise Architect, with provision to migrate up from UPDM 2.1

The Unified Architecture Framework Profile (UAFP) 1.0 (Beta 1) is also implemented within Enterprise Architect’s support of UAF. Full functionality for UAF is automatically available to all end users with a valid UPDM plug-in or Enterprise Architect Suite Edition license.

Commited to Standards Development

Since early 2008, Sparx Systems has provided support of DoDAF and MODAF standards, with Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) best practices at the core of Enterprise Architect.

Sparx Systems’ commitment of standards continues with full UPDM 1.0 support in 2010, now at UPDM 2.1. Today, UAF 1.0 integration in Enterprise Architect 13 further demonstrates our dedication to Systems Engineering.


Unified Architecture Framework

Enterprise Architect can be used to specify operational capabilities, services and interactions between complex systems, as well as trace systems to strategies and organizations to verify architectural completeness. Harness the best practices derived from historical support of DoDAF, MODAF and UPDM, to develop well-formed models with clear separation of stakeholder concerns.
