The CV-1 addresses the enterprise concerns associated with the overall vision for transformational endeavors and thus defines the strategic context for a group of capabilities. The purpose of a CV-1 is to provide a strategic context for the capabilities described in the Architectural Description. It also provides a high-level scope for the Architectural Description which is more general than the scenario-based scope defined in an OV-1. CV-1 purpose is identical to MODAF StV-1 product usage. The difference between CV-1 model and StV-1 product lies in different concepts and relationships between them.
CV-1 can be represented using a CV-1 diagram which is based on the UML Class diagram.
