Reference model

Reference model

Reference model is a notion used in standard conceptual computing models. It is an abstract representation of the entities and relationships involved in a problem space, and forms the conceptual basis for the development of more concrete models of the space, and ultimately implementations, in a computing context. It thereby serves as an abstract template for the development of more specific models in a given domain, and allows for comparison between complying models.


Instances of reference models include, among others: the Open Systems Interconnection Basic Reference Model, the Open Geospatial Consortium reference models, the Von Neumann architecture as a sequential computing referential model, the Federal Enterprise Architecture reference models, and the Agent Systems Reference Model.
