“What’s an Executable Standard? Well the FACE™ Technical Standard is an Exemplar!”

View the Development and Application of Architecture Method from the Evolution of The Open Group TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2

In April 2018, I had the privilege of attending The Open Group conference in London with the theme: The TOGAF® Standard in 2018. After seven years, we see the release of the latest version TOGAF Standard 9.2.

On the one hand, many improvements in the new version are highly consistent with the knowledge and practical experience of the Aviation Industry Group in the field of architecture method. On the other hand, the active development and continuous improvement of the knowledge system reflect that the architecture method has huge demands and driving force at the practice level. There is still a big gap between Chinese and international applications in this respect. This article attempts to understand and share this updated version from the perspective of application. In addition, I hope that Chinese practitioners can get inspiration and confidence from these changes.
