Does increasing the amount of non-renewable resources (which could occur through the development of better exploration technologies) improve our future? Also, experiment with the start date of a low birth-rate, environmentally focused policy.

​Purpose
Enables the different components in the 5 capability model in a visual manner for Enterprise and Business Architecture stakeholders.  

Enter volumes based on transactions from all your applications based on the business process layer.  Actual transaction volumes recorded for your expense or revenue stream.  Example; how many applications are sponsored by engineering that allow CREATE and UPDATE of a supplier or customer.  Enter the number of transactions in the engineering variable.  The engineering group has no authority to create either a supplier or customer.  All organizations are allowed to submit a certain set of inputs for a super user group to review and then those super users create and update the master record.  

Food for thought, the difference between the records created by the super user group and the volume of created party management records is the opportunity to scale and protect the reputation of your client.  

Now lets do the same for every update to a party management record.  All changes to a supplier or customer could effect pricing and tax or duty fees and each must use the formal change management process with many changes needing to have an authorized representative from the supplier or customer.  Digital records are in need of key control designs.  These are monitored and reported to the SEC.  

BUSINESS ARCHITECTURE 

5 Capability Model
The 5 capability model has many stock and flow children which each organization will need to model based on their current state.  

  • Aligns to APQC Process Framework
  • Aligns to Principles in ISO 9001, 26000 and 27001 

ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE 
Aligns Zachman Framework Enterprise and Business Architecture with Executive and Leaders from a business management level across any organization.  

A method in which to align and benchmark any organization or agency, with the system(s) logic required from Architects in Row 3, to enable Row 4 engineers who need to supply physics. 


Semantic
Getting terms to align to the generic objects can be a trying task, unless you simply list the stakeholders "semantic" term below the stakeholder in the presentation layer by order shown in the business process management section above the capability management group.

What is the true cost of escalating too many Tier 1/Level 1 tickets to Level 2/3 engineers?
