Architecture Building Blocks

Architecture Building Blocks is one of the TOGAF deliverables you can create with the TOGAF software.

Architecture Building Blocks (ABBs) relate to the Architecture Continuum, and are defined or selected as a result of the application of the ADM.

Characteristics are:

  • Capture architecture requirements; e.g., business, data, application, and technology requirements
  • Direct and guide the development of SBBs

Step 1: Develop Architecture Building Blocks

Develop Architecture Building Blocks

A building block consist of a grouping of functionality such as a customer database and some retrieval tools. Building blocks at this functional level of definition are described in TOGAF as Architecture Building Blocks (ABBs). In this activity you are required to document the building blocks.
