Resumo: The motivation domain of an Enterprise Architecture addresses objectives in a broad scope ranging from high-level statements expressing the goals of an enterprise to declarations of requirements on business processes, services and systems. An important development regarding the incorporation of the motivation domain in a comprehensive Enterprise Architecture modeling language is the upcoming Motivational Extension to ArchiMate (based on the ARMOR language). The extension proposes the inclusion of concepts such as concerns, assessments, goals, principles and requirements to ArchiMate.
Similarly to other goal modeling approaches, the initial development of the Motivation Extension has been conducted without a formal definition of its concepts. We believe that careful definition of the semantics of these concepts is required, especially when considering that the motivation domain addresses subjective aspects of the enterprise. To address that, this thesis focuses on an ontology-based semantics for the Motivation Extension. The concepts are interpreted by using the Unified Foundational Ontology (UFO) as a semantic foundation, and, as a result, propose well-founded recommendations for improvements of the extension.
