Techopedia explains Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF)
The objective of DoDAF is to concretely define models and concepts that are usable in the DoD’s core processes:
- Joint Capabilities and Integration Development (JCIDS)
- Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE)
- Defense Acquisition System (DAS)
- Systems Engineering (SE)
- Operational Planning (OPLAN)
- Capability Portfolio Management (CPM)
- Establish guidance for creating architecture content as a function of purpose or "fit for purpose."
- Enhance the effectiveness and utility of architectures through a rigorous data model so that it can be analyzed, evaluated and eventually integrated with more precision. This data model is called DoDAF Meta Model (DM2).
