BNCC provides annual publications for its members in the form of
magazines and CD-ROMs. Since the member's fees include the cost of such
subscriptions, it is essential that each member may obtain a copy upon
request. But overproduction and unclaimed copies are not desirable, as it
incurs losses to the organization.

The system will aid in production (replication) and distribution management
of those media. For each publication cycle, it will keep records on how many
copies of the media produced, how many distributed, and the number that ... read more

Architecture is Situated:

Architecture, as an activity, is located within systems’ life cycles, the operational and
development environments, etc. Architectural products have multiple audiences drawn from
multiple system stakeholders. These products should relate to those stakeholders’ needs, in the
context of other products they need to do their jobs (e.g., Statements of Need, Operational
Concepts Documents, System Specifications, Top-Level Design Documents, Strategy, and
Policy Memoranda, etc.). Products also have ownership and other roles. ... read more

Leveraging these advances, and coupled with the industry-based Unified Profile for DODAF and MODAF (UPDM) standard, defence architecture frameworks can now be used to integrate capability development information and examine portfolio-level issues. By using these industry standards, it is now possible to rapidly develop customised fit-for-purpose views that can be more easily understood and thereby enhance the decision-making process. This work describes our recent experiences of employing architecture-based decision support concepts in capability development. ... read more
