Engineering Viewpoint - definition(s)

engineering viewpoint - RM-ODP viewpoint that relates a system`s purposes, content, and functions to specific components linked by a communications network. This viewpoint is concerned primarily with the interaction between distinct computational objects: its chief concerns are communication, computing systems, software processes and the clustering of computational functions at physical nodes of a communications network. The engineering viewpoint also provides terms for assessing the "transparency" of a system of networked components - that is, how well each piece works without detailed knowledge of the computational infrastructure. The engineering viewpoint can be described in terms of UML collaboration diagrams and deployment diagrams.
