Service Model Design
The Service Model Design generator creates a totally customizable professional Microsoft
Word design document that describes the general service architecture used by the
system, as well as full structure with descriptions of all services and their
input and output structures grouped by module.
This can save you countless hours on developing and maintaining high quality design
documentation, and will allow you to be more agile by sharing the design with other
stakeholders right away. Plus, you'll never have to worry about the technical design
being out of sync with the actual implementation.
You can customize the generator parameters to set the general document properties
such as the Title, Author, Company, etc. If you'd like to change the look and feel
of the document or the content that gets generated, then you can also update the
MS Word template for the document or provide your own template altogether.
The following topics provide more details and step-by-step instructions for this
generator and the related tasks.
The picture below illustrates a sample document that was generated from a service model
based on the AdventureWorks database.
