The Six Hats, Six Coats Rack

Now that we have been exploring the Six Hats, Six Coats metaphor, I want to bring back the Zachman Framework as an abstract.

The term “relations” is equivalent to “tables”. “Associations” is equivalent to “rows”. “Attributes” is equivalent to columns. “Domains” is equivalent to “valid values”. “Definitions” is equivalent to “affordances”. “Manipulations” is equivalent to “transactions”.

You can see when we abstract in this way the correlation with the Six Hats, Six Coats metaphor is complete.

So why create the two models? I created the Six Hats, Six Coats model to have a neutral workspace to reveal how many other hexads exist and correlate. We have seen how Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs,

and McLuhan’s Tetrads

can all be extended to fit onto this framework. And I will continue to incorporate more elements as they present themselves.
