Frank Alvidrez on Practical DoDAF for System Engineers and Program Management

Abstract: In this one-day session, the student is introduced to the practical application of the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF). Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of:

  • The system of systems engineering process
  • Advanced modeling techniques (UML, SysML)
  • The use of architectures in NetCentric operations and planning
  • Hands on exposure to DoDAF using Magic Draw

This session is presented from the practical user’s perspective which covers the following:

  1. The origins of the DoDAF
  2. The governance of DoDAF
  3. Architecture sources, how to keep up with and where to go to obtain more DoDAF information
  4. Practical examples of DoDAF
  5. How to tailor work products
  6. How to meet the requirements of interoperability using integrated architectures and practical use of models of architectures
