Brief Introduction

MDG Technology for UPDM banner

Welcome to the UPDM 2.0 profile in Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.

This UML profile extends the capability of Enterprise Architect to support the creation of Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) architecture models. DoDAF is the abbreviation of Department of Defense Architecture Framework (USA); MODAF is the abbreviation of Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (UK).

The UPDM profile provides a standard approach for modeling systems and enterprise architectures in support of DoDAF and MODAF. It improves interoperability of architecture data among architecture modeling tools, enhances reuse of architecture data, and improves communication among DoDAF and MODAF stakeholders.

UPDM is already integrated with the Enterprise Architect Ultimate and Unified Editions; an MDG Technology can be purchased separately to be used with the Enterprise Architect Professional or Corporate Editions.

This technology is based on the Unified Profile for DoDAF-MODAF (UPDM) version 1.0.  UPDM 1.0 is based on DoDAF version 1.5 and MODAF version 1.2.  Full details of the profile, including the latest specification, can be obtained from the Object Management Group (OMG) website.
