Dear,

Hope all are fine and doing well. This is my first topic in this forum. I will do the Togaf part2 exam soon, I am using some practice questions to clear the exam, I feel these questions are not answered correctly, so can you help me and in answering them correctly. This will help many people who are planning to do the exam:

134. Scenario Turbonix Enterprises. Please read this scenario prior to answering the question, Turbonix Enterprises specializes in the development of wind turbine blades for use in large-scale commercial wind energy production systems. Turbonix has manufacturing facilities located in Palm Springs, California, Omaha, Nebraska, and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Each of these plants supplies a different manufacturer that builds and sells complete systems. The turbine blades are custom engineered to meet each manufacturer’s design specifications. Until recently, most turbine blades were fabricated manually using molded fiber-reinforced plastics. However, recent improvements in composite materials, coupled with enhanced automated methods for precision application of materials during the molding process, have led to significant reduction in weight, increase in strength, and greatly improved blade longevity. Turbonix has pioneered the development of a proprietary automated process for continuous extrusion of the turbine blades. Patents have been filed to protect the process, but certain trade secrets must be closely guarded.
Turbonix has a mature Enterprise Architecture organization that is supported by a cross-functional Architecture Review Board. The Chief Information Officer and the Chief Operating Officer cosponsor the Enterprise Architecture program. Turbonix has used T06AF and its Architecture Development Method (ADM) to develop its automated manufacturing processes and systems that are used to design, manufacture, and test the blade assemblies. They have adapted their Enterprise Architecture to closely follow the TOGAF 9 framework. All of Turbonix’s enterprise architects have been trained and certified on TOGAF 9. Recently, an architecture project was completed that defined a standard approach for controlling the Automated Test System that is used at each plant to perform final quality assurance tests on each completed blade assembly. The Manufacturing Architecture Board approved the plan for immediate implementation at each plant. An Architecture Contract was developed that detailed the work needed to implement and deploy the new Automated Test System controller. The Chief Engineer, sponsor of the activity, has expressed concern that a uniform process be employed at each site to ensure consistency. Refer to the Turbonix Enterprises Scenario You are the Lead Architect for this activity. You have been asked to recommend the best approach to adopt to address the Chief Engineer’s concern. Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?

A. You create an Architecture Contract to manage and govern the implementation and migration process. If the contract is issued to an external party, you ensure that it is a fully enforceable legal contract. For internal development projects, you decide it is adequate to utilize a memorandum of understanding between the Manufacturing Architecture Board and the implementation organization. You recommend that if a deviation from the contract is detected, the Manufacturing Architecture Board should modify the Architecture Contract to allow the implementation organization the ability to customize the process to meet their local needs. As a result, you then issue a new Request for Architecture Work to implement the modified Architecture Definition.

B. You create an Architecture Contract to manage and govern the implementation and migration process. If the contract is issued to an external party, you ensure that it is a fully enforceable legal contract. For internal development projects, you decide it is adequate to utilize a memorandum of understanding between the Manufacturing Architecture Board and the implementation organization. You recommend that if a deviation from the Architecture Contract is detected, the Manufacturing Architecture Board grant a dispensation ID allow the implementation organization the ability to customize the process to meet their local needs.

C. You create en Architecture Contract to manage and govern the implementation and migration process. If the contract is issued to an external party, you ensure that it is a fully enforceable legal contract. For internal development projects, you decide it is adequate to utilize a memorandum of understanding between the Manufacturing Architecture Board and the implementation organization. You ensure that the Manufacturing Architecture Board reviews all deviations from the Architecture Contract, and considers whether or not to grant a dispensation to allow the implementation organization to customize the process to meet their local needs.

D. You create an Architecture Contract to govern the implementation and migration process at each site. If the contract is issued to an external party, you ensure that it is a fully enforceable legal contract. You ensure that the contract addresses the project objectives, effectiveness metrics, acceptance criteria, and risk management. You then schedule compliance reviews at key points in the implementation process to ensure that the work is proceeding in accordance with the Architecture Definition. Based on the results, you ensure that the Manufacturing Architecture Board reviews all deviations from the Architecture Contract, and considers whether or not to grant a dispensation to allow the implementation organization to customize the process to meet their local needs.

135. Scenario Glacier Ridge LLC. Please read this scenario prior to answering the question, Glacier Ridge LLC is a vacation property management firm that is growing through acquisition. It manages over 200 resort properties across North America. Many of the resort properties use the same internal IT systems that they used before they were acquired. Until recently, the only requirement that has been placed in each property is that they use a standard financial reporting system to report their financials ID the headquarters on a weekly basis. The CEO has stated his concerns about the inefficiencies of the current approach and identified the need to change. He has defined a new strategic vision that will enhance the Glacier Ridge property business by standardizing its operations across the network to provide consolidated financial, human resources, logistics, sales and marketing, and yield management. He has also stated that he expects results by the end of the current fiscal year. These changes will provide the company with improved utilization of its capacity and more efficient operations. The addition of a corporate-wide data warehouse will provide analytics that will enable the marketing group to improve its ability to target advertising into key markets to improve yields. Glacier Ridge has a mature enterprise architecture (EA) practice and uses TOGAF 9 as the method and guiding framework. The CIO is the sponsor of the activity. In planning this change, the Chief Architect engaged the services of a well-known consulting firm that specializes in business strategy. An initial study has been conducted to identify the strategic changes needed to implement the CEO’s vision. This recently completed with approval of a strategic architecture encompassing the entire firm, including detailed requirements and recommendations. Based on the recommendations from the initial engagement, Glacier Ridge has embraced an Architecture Vision to adopt an enterprise application that is tailored to the needs of the hospitality industry. Refer to the Glacier Ridge Scenario Your role is that of Chief Architect. You have been asked to recommend the best approach to take in this architecture engagement to realize the CEO’s vision. Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?


A. Since the initial engagement has identified the need to change, you recommend that the team focus on defining the target architecture by going through the architecture definition phases (B-D). This will ensure that the change can be defined in a structured manner and address the requirements needed to realize the vision.

B. Since the vision is well understood and the strategic architecture agreed, you recommend that the target architecture is defined first, followed by transition planning. This will ensure that the current inefficiencies of the baseline architecture are not carried forward, and that the proposed solution addresses the requirements identified in the initial architecture engagement.

C. You recommend that this engagement define the Technology Architecture first in order to assess the current infrastructure capacity and capability. Then the focus should be on transition planning and architecture deployment. This will identify requirements to ensure that the projects are sequenced in an optimal fashion so as to realize the vision.

D. You recommend that the team focus on architecture definition, with a specific emphasis on understanding the strategic change parameters of the business strategy. Once understood, the team will be in the best position to identify the requirements, drivers, issues, and constraints for this engagement. You would ensure that the target architecture addresses non-functional requirements so as to help forecast future impacts.

Asking folks to answer questions they probably don't care much about may not be the best approach to getting the help you're looking for. Instead, why don't you tell us which answer you think is correct, and why you think the 'correct' answer is incorrect?
