Title
Basic reference model of Open Distributed Processing (ODP)

Applicability

ISO/IEC 10746 provides a coordinating framework for the standardization of open distributed processing (ODP). This supports distribution, interworking, portability, and platform and technology independence. It establishes an enterprise architecture framework for the specification of ODP systems. ISO/IEC 10746 defines the essential concepts necessary to specify open distributed processing systems from five prescribed viewpoints. It provides a well-developed framework for the structuring of specifications for large-scale, distributed systems.

The framework for system specification provided by ISO/IEC 10746 has four fundamental elements

  • an object modelling approach to system specification;
  • the specification of a system in terms of separate but interrelated viewpoint specifications;
  • the definition of a system infrastructure providing distribution transparencies for system applications;
  • a framework for assessing system conformance.
