The latter states the greater the effort to accomplish a task, the less likely the task will be accomplished successfully. The notion of scientific principle as a generally applicable law that can be used in the design of some artifact, corresponds to the interpretation of principles as laws or facts of nature underlying the working of an artificial device from the quoted Meriam-Webster (2003) definition. In line with the definition provided by the American Engineers’ Council for Professional, we will indeed refer to these principles as scientific principles, leading to the following definition: SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLE A law or fact of nature underlying the working of an artifact.

One might wonder whether a baseline architecture provides a restriction of design freedom, since it refers to an existing situation and not a future situation that still needs to be designed. However, the baseline architecture captures the design restrictions that were applied in creating the existing situation. In that sense, a baseline architecture has a more explanatory role, in that it documents the design restrictions that were explicitly (or implicitly) used in creating the existing situation.

In addition to providing a clearer definition of the concept of architecture principles, and an associated way of formulating and using principles, Appendix B provides a discussion on how the proposed way of formulating and using principles can be used in the context of TOGAF. The ArchiMate standard (Iacob et al. 2009) has been adopted by the Open Group more recently. It was initially developed by a consortium of Dutch organizations (companies, governmental organizations and research institutes) as part of a collaborative research project (Lankhorst et al.
