“The Capability Viewpoint and the DoDAF-described Models within the viewpoint are introduced into DoDAF V2.0 to address the concerns of Capability Portfolio Managers. In particular, the Capability Models describe capability taxonomy and capability evolution.” [DoDAF V2.0 Volume II]
“The DoD increasingly employs incremental acquisition to help manage the risks of complex procurements. Consequently, there is a need to provide visualizations of the evolving capabilities so that Portfolio Managers can synchronize the introduction of capability increments across a portfolio of projects. The Capability Models included within DoDAF are based on the program and capability information used by Portfolio Managers to capture the increasingly complex relationships between interdependent projects and capabilities.” [DoDAF V2.0 Volume II]
The basic modeling principles are demonstrated in the demo:
- How to model and relate capabilities to each other, watch demo UPDM: Strategic . Part 1.
- How to relate capabilities to the elements from other viewpoints and analyze capability provision and deployment gaps, watch demo UPDM: Strategic . Part 2 .
Some elements in the demo are different from UAF Plugin but the modeling principles are the same.
