An Architecture Model is a description of one or more entities in terms of other entities (contained components and components of the environment) and their attributes, specifically including innate properties and behaviours as well as the relationships between entities.

A formal architecture model is such a description codified in accordance with an (architecture) standard (which may reference subsidiary standards), such as an architectural Framework or Metamodel.

A formal model should identify the specific standard (by reference to dates and times, version numbers, standard document status, etc. as necessary) so that the compatibility of two or more models is determinable.


Architecture Model is a defined term of Enterprise Architecture.
