The Concepts viewpoint supports the process of analyzing and optimizing the delivery of capabilities in line with NATO‘s strategic intent. It achieves this by capturing essential elements of NATO‘s strategic vision, concepts, NATO‘s capability planning process, and decomposing this data into a capability taxonomy. The taxonomy is augmented with schedule data and measures of effectiveness to enable the analysis of capability gaps and overlaps. The Concepts viewpoint further details the dependencies between capabilities, enabling capability options to be built in a more coherent manner and effective trade-offs to be conducted across NATO common funded programmes.
