Length Full day
Fee $350
Time 8:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.
Overview The tutorial will provide an introduction to the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF). The tutorial will begin with a brief introduction to Enterprise Architecture and framework concepts and a review of the background and expected evolution of the DoDAF. The structure, content, and philosophy of the DoDAF will be presented, and the views, products, and metaprocess guidance will be reviewed in detail. In the morning session, a basic set of DoDAF products will be presented. The tutorial attendees will participate in developing example basic products related to ground systems. In the afternoon session, the rest of the DoDAF products will be presented. The DoDAF guidance on product selection will be reviewed and the attendees will participate in an exercise to select DoDAF products for a ground system EA. The tutorial will focus on DoDAF V1.5, but a brief overview of expected V2.0 changes will be included.
Instructor Ann Reedy, Federated Enterprise Architecture Certification (FEAC) Institute
Biography Dr. Reedy has been a major contributor to the development of the Department of Defense's architecture frameworks and to other frameworks used in the Federal Government. Some of her significant accomplishments have included adapting the Department of Defense framework's work products to other domains, such as the Treasury Department and Federal Segments, and developing Technical Reference Models. She works with many organizations to tailor the work products called for in Government architecture frameworks to the particular needs of the organization and the purpose of the architecture and assists in developing these architectures. She has developed a tailoring of DoD architecture framework views to support security architectures and developed a pattern-based approach for incorporating security information into architecture work products. Dr. Reedy is currently a faculty member for the DoDAF track of the FEAC Institute.
What Participants Should Expect to Learn Participants should gain an understanding of the purposes and content of the DoDAF as well as an understanding of how to use the DoDAF.
