Guidelines for Modelling
This chapter will help you create good enterprise architecture models. To do so, we discuss the act of modelling as a goal-driven activity, the role of the stakeholders, as well as the modelling process in general. The chapter focuses on the key aspects of modelling: the use of abstraction levels, the choice of modelling concepts and relations, and different ways of structuring and visualising models. The results are presented in the form of guidelines for modelling and visualisation.
