The (ISO Standard) RM-ODP model is a powerful and well reasoned mechanism for creating Architectural descriptions (“architectures”). Leveraging the IEEE-1471 taxonomy, and building out a visual style and standardized approach, there is tremendous value in learning and using this the RM-ODP (Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing), and I’m getting to the point of recommending it. That said, there is a gap in one of the most fundamental areas of the RM-ODP model. RM-ODP specifies exactly five viewpoints.
