Some of the viewpoints were introduced in earlier versions of DoDAF, others, such as Project and Capability are new to DoDAF 2.0.An architecture viewpoint can be displayed in a number of formats, such as dashboards, fusion, textual, composite, or graphs, which represents data and the architecture description which represents an architecture. In DoDAF 2.0, the ability is provided to create an architectural description which can be expressed in many of the same formats normally used for briefing, analysis, and decision-making.The next few slides present a view of data from an architecture developed for the US Air Force at Arnold Engineering Development Center in Tennessee. This is the Air Force Center for R&D, testing and Analysis of aircraft, engines, and other components. Both Charles and I are using these views today with the permission of the Air Force.Architecture viewpoints are composed of data that has been organized to facilitate understanding.66
8 “Fit for Purpose” DoDAF Architecture Descriptions
9 DoDAF V 2.0 Delivery DoDAF V2.0 is available at: It is important to note at the outset that utilizing this methodology for your architecture effort is NOT mandatory. It has been provided in DoDAF 2.0 as a means for organizations to adopt a generic, easy-to-use method for creating an architectural description, and for new teams with little experience.If an organization prefers to use its own methods, then the generic methodology is there to compare to ensure that all the needed steps are contained in the methodology the organization prefers to use in its own efforts.There are six steps is the DoDAF methodology:1-Determine the intended use of the architecture2- Determine the scope of the architecture3- Determine data required to support architecture development4- Collect, organize, correlate and store data5- Conduct analysis in support of architecture objectives6- Document resultsManagers don’t do all of these steps. The first 2 (speak to) are the managers’ domain, as is Step 5. The rest are the domain of the architect and development team, with the manager acting as a subject-matter expert, where needed.

14 Architecture Models + Data = Architectural Description Operational Model ExampleThingsIndividualsTypes or classes of individuals or thingsThe framework enables architecture content to be built that is “Fit for Purpose”, defined and described in Volume 1 as architecture, which is consistent with specific project or mission objectives. Because architecture can be applied at myriad levels of an enterprise, the purpose or use of architecture at each level will be different in content, structure, and level of detail. Pulling everything together that we know about an architecture—the viewpoints, requirements, and expected outcomes, we have an architectural description.In order to ensure that architectural descriptions meet program and mission objectives, the approach to architecture development must be tailored to address a specific, well-articulated, and understood purpose. This will help to ensure that necessary data collection, to an appropriate level of detail, is undertaken, completed, and supportive of specific decisions or objectives.Architectural description: A collection of products to document an architecture. An architectural description generally contains one or more viewpoints to express the business, service, system and other elements of the overall project or program.Architecture: The fundamental organization of a system embodied in its components, their relationships to each other, and to the environment, and the principles guiding its design and evolution.ArchitectureData + MetadataArchitectureModelsArchitectural DescriptionFit-for-Purpose (FFP)Fit-for-Purpose describes an architecture that is appropriately focused and directly support customer needs or improve the overall process undergoing change. The models provide choices, based upon the decision-maker needs.1414
15 DoDAF V2.0 FocusResults: Better ANALYSIS and Decisions.Focus: architecture DATA, not ProductsDoDAF 2.0 significantly refocuses the architectural concepts that have been in play for many years. First and foremost, the focus is on DATA, not architecture products. Data is needed for good analysis and better decisions. How these decisions are made within the culture of an organization should not artificially change just because we publish a Framework.Instead, this version discusses how to collect the data needed, validate that data, organize that data, and THEN form it into models, views, and viewpoints that graphically express the data. For those that have been happy with the older ‘DoDAF products’, please be assured that they are still being supported, along with many other views. The difference is that you can choose HOW to express your data in ways that better fit both your organizational preferences, and your specific project needs.DoDAF V2.0 provides overarching architecture concepts, guidance, best practices, and methods to enable and facilitate architecture development.1515

20 DOD Architect Levels Level 1 Development Level 2 Analysis Primary function is to develop architectures based on user requirements and input from subject matter expertsLevel 2 AnalysisPrimary function is to analyze architectures for the purposes of integration, interoperability, gap analysis, risk assessment, leveragability, compliance, and business decision makingLevel 3 ManagementPrimary function is to lead and manage an architecture effort through its entire lifecycle, from development to execution/implementationWhite paper identifies the functions and associated KSAs for each level. These KSAs are independent of educational degree, working domain (contractor, civilian, military), or career title (GS level, rank, or role).
