“The DoDAF-described Models within the Standards Viewpoint is the set of rules governing the arrangement, interaction, and interdependence of parts or elements of the Architectural Description. These sets of rules can be captured at the enterprise level and applied to each solution, while each solution’s architectural description depicts only those rules pertinent to architecture described. Its purpose is to ensure that a solution satisfies a specified set of operational or capability requirements. The Standards Models capture the doctrinal, operational, business, technical, or industry implementation guidelines upon which engineering specifications are based, common building blocks are established, and solutions are developed. It includes a collection of the doctrinal, operational, business, technical, or industry standards, implementation conventions, standards options, rules, and criteria that can be organized into profiles that govern solution elements for a given architecture. Current DoD guidance requires the Technical Standards portions of models be produced from DISR to determine the minimum set of standards and guidelines for the acquisition of all DoD systems that produce, use, or exchange information.” [DoDAF V2.0 Volume II]
