Abstract: NERC DataGrid (NDG) will provide discovery of and access to a range of environmental data. Here we describe the deployment of the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP) to architect NDG development. RM-ODP was adopted as a formal architecture methodology because of the close match between Grids and ODP system concepts. The process provides a number of views of the system being designed – in this paper we concentrate on the Enterprise view. The RM-ODP Enterprise language specifies the purpose, scope and policies of a system using readily-understood concepts. It provides a structured approach to requirements capture and analysis. An ODP community corresponds to a classical Grid virtual organisation (VO). Roles are identified for VO participants, together with activities they engage in, and governing policies.
