This document complements the architecture-related processes identified in ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288, ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 and ISO 15704 with activities and tasks that enable architects and others to more effectively and efficiently implement architecture practices. Implementing these practices can help ensure that the architecture has greater influence on business and mission success. It specifies a coherent set of processes for governance, management, conceptualization, evaluation and elaboration of architectures, and activities that enable these processes. Users of this document can apply these processes in the context of: (1) understanding, development and evolution of entities through their life cycle stages such as conception, development, implementation, operation, sustainment, decommissioning, and disposal; (2) organization(s) acting as users, customers and providers of the solution specified by the architecture description; and (3) architecting of entities.

IEEE/ISO/IEC Draft International Standard for Systems and Software Engineering -- Architecture Description
This International Standard specifies the manner in which architecture descriptions of systems are organized and expressed. This International Standard specifies architecture viewpoints, architecture frameworks and architecture description languages for use in architecture descriptions. This International Standard establishes the conceptual foundations for terms and concepts used in architecture description; presents guidance on specifying architecture viewpoints and architecture frameworks; and demonstrates the use of this International Standard with other standards.
ISO/IEC/IEEE International Standard - Software, systems and enterprise -- Architecture evaluation framework
This document complements the architecture-related processes identified in ISO/IEC/IEEE 42020, ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288, ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 and ISO 15704 with a framework in support of architecture evaluation. It especially supports the Architecture Evaluation process in ISO/IEC/IEEE 42020. Implementing the principles and concepts in this framework will help ensure that the architecture has greater influence on business and mission success. It specifies a coherent set of elements for use in evaluation synthesis, value assessment and architectural analysis. Users of this standard can apply the framework in the context of: (1) determination of the suitability of a proposed architecture; (2) choosing among architecture alternatives; and (3) assessing the mission or business impact from the use of a new architecture or change to an established architecture.
