First, we will model the Enterprise Architecture of our End-to-End model Framework. This Enterprise Architecture model will follow the rules of the META-MODEL. This allows everybody in the company to model on the same way which gives us an uniform and extensive way of reporting.
The Enterprise Architecture is being modelled in ArchiMate version 3.0.
Secondly, we are going to refine the Chain Processes of the Enterprise Architecture through Process Analysis. The Process Analysis is being modelled in BPMN version 2.0.
Nevertheless, both modelling languages will be connected to each other, also traceability will be built in. The Process Analysis consists of several layers, we will model the Business Processes (BP) and the Work Processes in BPMN. The Roles, Applications and Data in these Work Processes will be connected with those of the Enterprise Architecture in order to optimally utilize reusability and traceability. This will give us also the opportunity to do an impact analysis.
A Process Map will provide an overview of all Processes in the organization.
As a third step, we will develop the Activities (from the Work Processes of the Process Analysis) into Use-Cases, Activity & Sequence diagrams. All the components of these diagrams will be linked with the Process Analysis and the Enterprise Architecture or a synchronized End-to-End model. The Functional & Technical Analysis is modeled in UML version 2.x.
The data architecture of our End-to-End framework will have a different representation at all times and will be refined more and more. For example, the Data in the Enterprise Architecture will not look the same as the Data in the Process Analysis and is also different than in the Functional Analysis.
The following models are created in the End-to-End model: Domain models, Logical and Physical data models, as well as a model of a mapping of data fields.
The Data Architecture is modelled in both ArchiMate 3.0 / BPMN 2.0 / UML 2.x
