The purpose of this manual is to help you understand the differences between UPDM 1.x and DoDAF 1.5 or any earlier versions, guide you along data mapping and explain how you as a user can have a say in the mapping process.

The following chapters describe how the migration works.

Basic Concepts and Instructions

The Unified Profile for DoDAF/MODAF (UPDM) is the standard of an Object Management Group (OMG) initiative to develop a modeling standard that supports both the US Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and UK Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF). As UPDM supports both frameworks, it is particularly important for those used to DoDAF 1.5 or any earlier version to clear some misunderstandings.

The purpose of DoDAF migration to UPDM 1.x is to convert DoDAF 1.5 metamodel projects into UPDM 1.x metamodel projects without loosing data.

Migration to UPDM 1.x is not backward compatible, so before proceeding with migration we highly recommend that you back-up your DoDAF projects.
