The Open Group ArchiMate Model Exchange File Format Standard defines a file format that can be used to exchange data between tools that wish to import and export ArchiMate Version 3 models. ArchiMate exchange files enable exporting content from one ArchiMate modeling tool or repository and importing it into another while retaining information describing the model in the file and how it is structured, such as a list of model elements and relationships. The Standard focuses on the packaging and transport of ArchiMate models.
The deliverables included with this Standard are as follows:
- The Open Group Standard, ArchiMate® Model Exchange File Format
- XML Schema Documentation
- A ZIP file containing the XSD Schema file, and example models in the Exchange File Format
An online resource site for implementors is available at www.opengroup.org/xsd/archimate
A number of ArchiMate models are available for download.
