SvcV-7 – Services Measures Matrix

Download PDF

The SvcV-7 depicts the measures (metrics) of resources. The Services Measures Matrix expands on the information presented in a SvcV-1 Services Context Description by depicting the characteristics of the resources in the SvcV-1 Services Context Description.


The intended usage of the SvcV-7 includes:

  • Definition of performance characteristics and measures (metrics).
  • Identification of non-functional requirements.

Product Description

The SV-7 specifies, in a tabular format, qualitative and quantitative measures (metrics) of resources. It specifies all of the measures. The measures are selected by the end-user community and described by the architect.

One of the primary purposes of SvcV-7 is to communicate which measures are considered most crucial for the successful achievement of the mission goals assigned. These particular measures can often be the deciding factors in acquisition and deployment decisions, and figure strongly in services analysis and simulations done to support the acquisition decision processes and system design refinement and be input or may impact decisions about Service Level Agreement content.
