NAF Tool

Create NAF views and produce reports in seconds

NAF in Visual Paradigm

Visual Paradigm provides an easy-to-use, model-driven solution that supports the development of NAF 4 views and models. Create integrated NAF products with traceability maintained among views. Generate architectural documents that facilitate organizations to efficiently coordinate enterprise architecture initiatives.

Effective views management through the grid view

The grid representation of NAF provides a logical way to manage architectural products. Architects can easily access a particular view through this interface.

Create architectural views that conform to the NAF

Visual Paradigm extends the UML to provide a set of new diagram types, with new diagram toolbars tailored for NAF views creation, ensuring that your architectural description will conform to the NAF guides and specifications.

Reuse architectural building blocks

The architectural building blocks created in a view can be visualized in any other views through a simple drag-and-drop action. Modification of a model will result in an automatic update of same model in all 'alternate views'.

Maintain full traceability between different views

Traceability among architectural building blocks can be visualized using the Matrix tool or as a visual traceability map using an Analysis Diagram.
