The Technology Layer has been extended with elements for modeling the physical world; for example, manufacturing, logistics, and other physical environments. The Figure below shows an example of physical elements. Note that: All the elements shown in the example except for Path, are new in the ArchiMate 3.0 Specification, and
The physical elements are added as an extension to the Technology Layer for modeling the physical world. There are only active and passive structure element concepts in the physical elements and there are no separate physical behavior elements are defined here in this layer. The behavior elements from the Technology
Physical concepts describe the Physical Elements, which include concepts relevant for the modeling of physical concepts like machines and physical installations. The physical elements are added as an extension to the Technology Layer for modeling the physical world. The Figure below gives an overview of the physical elements and their relationships.
