The purpose of the APG is to provide modelers and analysts with a user guide that describes how to define, create, update, and interpret models within the BEA.
For each BEA model and associated elements, the APG contains a section that provides a summary description of the purpose, structure, relationship to other BEA models, and model definitions. Each section also includes procedures and tasks required to develop each model that can be applied independent of the repository and development tool used. Finally, each section identifies the applicable modeling standards and conventions required for the IBM Rational System Architect (SA) tool, which has been used for BEA development since the first BEA deliverable.
The APG is intended for an audience that understands DoDAF and has SA training and/or experience. This document does not address guidelines for the Systems Evolution Description (SV-8), which pertains to the Enterprise Transition Plan (ETP) and is external to SA.
Documents are in common file formats such as Microsoft Word (doc), Powerpoint (ppt), Excel (xls,csv,xlsx), and Adobe pdf.
