The PV-2 provides a timeline perspective on programs. The PV-2 is intended primarily to support the acquisition and fielding processes including the management of dependencies between projects and the integration of DoDD 5000.1 Defense Acquisition System policies to achieve a successfully integrated capability. The PV-2 is not limited to the acquisition and fielding processes.
The intended usage of the PV-2 includes:
- Project management and control (including delivery timescales).
- Project dependency risk identification.
- Management of dependencies.
- Portfolio management.
PV-2 can be represented using a PV-2 diagram which is realized as a Gantt Chart.
Use of PV-2 should support the management of capability delivery and be aligned with the CV-3 Capability Phasing model, if one exists.
