Presenting a Native Model of Development the G-NAF Project in Iran

Kaveh Dolati, Dr. Mahmod Alborzi, Dr. Asghar Sarafi Zadeh


Having access to an exclusive and standard geo-referenced address will improve the quality of urban services in economic, social, environmental terms and etc. In this regard, Australia has always been one of the pioneers of G-NAF project. Hence in this thesis, after recognizing G-NAF in Australia and other Implemented successful cases, I investigated the present situation of addressing the premises in Iran; then, based on available documents and G-NAF expert opinions, required primary components to implement the project were extracted. Also along with this suggestion, Primary components of enterprise architecture, compatible with different organizational architecture designs, were extracted and then each of them were presented as a Likert scale questionnaire. In the next step, questionnaire was presented to Delphi panel elites. At the end, final components of the implementation project and also enterprise architecture components were extracted. Next, I use QFD method, including the implementation project and enterprise architecture matrix components, to verify coverage of this two elements. By using QFD method, it was proved that the enterprise architecture components covered all the required components for project implementation. Then the importance and priority of final components were determined, and ultimately, the proposed model and its implementation method were submitted.
