The Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture
is a comprehensive classification scheme for descriptive representations (models) of an enterprise. First conceptualized nearly two decades ago by John Zachman, it has evolved to become a universal schematic for defining and describing today's complex enterprise systems and for managing the multiple perspectives of an organization's information and knowledge infrastructure.

e.g., Semantic Model

e.g., Business Process Model

e.g., Logistics Network

e.g., Work Flow Model

e.g., Master Schedule
