there is no specific agreement to place in these framework execution procedures. It would also depend on the selection of the specialist who uses the framework for the construction of the enterprise system (Zachman, 2008). A significant measure of the emphasis is on ensuring that each part of a company is effective and delivers a clear connection, despite the absence of the operation and succession of the framework's execution plan. This framework guarantees the execution procedure which is established on a clean architectural design principal which is given to the designer and the builder.
Figure 1 Graphical representation of the Zachman FrameworkZachman Framework is a two-dimensional classification system for a company's descriptive depictions structured as a matrix comprising 36 cells, each concentrating on one aspect or the company's viewpoint. There are numerous principles which complete the system to be shaped by answering the six questions found in the primitive interrogatives (why, when, how, where, what and who) when the system is developed. Figure 1 shows these six points of view areused to capture most of the critical models required in any business enterprise for any of the system developments. Then again, another extra-applied structure of the various abstracting columns would diminish the problems of the single model being built. The framework enables complex subjects to be distilled into systematic categories in the column headers, using these six basic questions (known as 5WH). The answers to these questions will differ, depending on the perspective or audience (represented in the rows). Each view is a description from a particular perspective and has a representation (a model or functioning system), as indicated in the Table above. Here is a brief description of each view and model/functioning system:What: what is the business data, information or objects?How (function): how does the business work or what are the business' processes?Where: where are the business operations?
Who: who are the people that run the business, what are the business units and their hierarchy?When: when are the business processes performed, i.e., what are the business schedules and workflows?
