The CV-3 addresses the planned achievement of capability at different points in time or during specific periods of time, i.e., capability phasing. The CV-3 supports the capability audit processes and similar processes used across the different COIs by providing a method to identify gaps or duplication in capability provision. The CV-3 indicates capability increments, which should be associated with delivery milestones within acquisition projects (when the increments are associated with capability deliveries).
The intended usage of the CV-3 includes:
- Capability planning (capability phasing).
- Capability integration planning.
- Capability gap analysis.
CV-3 can be represented using a CV-3 diagram which is realized as a time based diagram.
