Thus far have been developed different Enterprise Architecture (EA) methodologies. Much of them attempt to the identification of essential steps for enterprise architecting. They also do not impose any particular set of tools or methods for enterprise architecting, but define the criteria to be satisfied by any set of selected tools and methods. In this paper the Axiomatic Design is considered as an appropriate technique which can be used in the EA methodologies. Specially, this technique is used in the Generalized Enterprise Reference Architecture and Methodology (GERAM), which is on of the most familiar EA methodologies. The different steps of the Axiomatic Design technique are mapped on the GERA Life-cycle phases of the GERAM. This mapping allows the architectures to identify the enterprise entities and shape the EA framework in a structured, methodological, and practical manner. This method is used in the Iran Telecommunication research Center (ITRC). Through this method, the ITRC have developed reference architecture for information and communication technology institutes.
