The NATO Architecture Framework (NAF) provides a standardized way to develop architecture artefacts, by defining
- Methodology – how to develop architectures and run an architecture project (Chapter 2),
- Viewpoints – conventions for the construction, interpretation and use of architecture views for communicating the enterprise architecture to different stakeholders (Chapter 3),
- Meta-Model – the application of commercial meta-models identified as compliant with NATO policy (Chapter 4), and
- a Glossary, References and Bibliography (Chapter 5).
