Establish Thought Leadership in Architecture and improve the adoption of Architectures in Systems Engineering
The purpose of the Architecture Working Group (ArchWG) is to expand the practice of architecture and advance the body of knowledge. The architecture activities define a solution based on principles, concepts, and properties logically related to and consistent with each other. The solution has features, properties, and characteristics which satisfy, as far as possible, the problem or opportunity expressed by a set of requirements (traceable to mission, business and stakeholder requirements) and life cycle concepts (e.g., operational, support). A standing working group facilitates evolution of the practice while focusing on Enterprise, System, hardware and Software Architectures. It supports collaboration across INCOSE working groups, other engineering disciplines and organizations, and international bodies with a common interest in architecture.
The ArchWG addresses the domains of Enterprise, System, Hardware and Software.
The members of the ArchWG are practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders concerned by Enterprise, System, hardware and Software Architectures. The ArchWG seeks to accomplish standing goals, plus goals established each year at the INCOSE International Workshop. Standing goals are defined as follows:
These goals are conducted in association with other bodies where appropriate. For example, over several years, ISO JTC1/SC7/WG42, (the Architecture Working Group of the Joint ISO-IEC Technical Committee) has been a "customer" for ArchWG input. Collaborations with the ISO TC 184/SC5 (Interoperability, integration, and architectures for enterprise systems and automation applications), the IEEE and the OMG are also established.
The ArchWG aims to provide a variety of products and services, including:
