What is Systems Engineering (SE) and how is applied to DoDAF 2.02??

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary area of engineering that concentrates on how to design and manage complicated engineering systems.

When a project is complex and large, issues such as requirements engineering, reliability, logistics, testing, analysis, and other disciplines required for effective system development, design, implementation, and final decommission become very complicated. Therefore, systems engineering comes to play. Systems engineering handle processes, optimization, and risk management. Systems engineering takes all aspects of a project into consideration and incorporate them as a united system.

Unlike manufacturing process that concentrate on repetitive actions to accomplish high quality results at minimum cost and time, systems engineering process is a discovery process. Systems engineering process starts with identifying the problems and the most possible failures and then uses creative solutions to solve those problems.

What is DoDAF 2.02?

DoDAF, the Department of Defense Architecture Framework, is an architecture framework that provides graphical and visualization frame for a specific problem through organized viewpoints. Such viewpoints are derived from various views, which are pieces of visualizing, realization, and assimilating the wide scope and difficulties of an architecture description through tabular, structure, behavioral, ontological, pictorial, temporal, graphical, probabilistic, or other conceptual tools.

DoDAF so far has released two versions of DoDAF V1.5 (older version) and DoDAF V2.0 (DoDAF 2.02)

The DoDAF:

  • Defines a set of architectural products and views in three perspectives: Operational, System, and Technical
  • Provides direction on how to describe architectures
  • Defines output products that are intended to provide a common basis for comparing and evaluating architectures.
