The context of the work pattern is used in the Volère approach to requirements engineering1.

Depending on the layer of interest it can be used at the Business Layer, the Application Layer or the Technology Layer. Check the layer pages for further details about the pattern's model elements.

The below figure gives the pattern at the business layer.

There is an example of use of this pattern in the Parliament Watch case. The use of the pattern for requirements engineering is also illustrated in the case.

The context of the work pattern (using ArchiMate's model elements, at the business layer)

The pattern has been created using ArchiMate 3 model elements in the Archi - The Free ArchiMate Modelling Tool.
