DoDAF Workshop –  Business Process Management applied to DoDAF 2.0, A combination of theoretical and practical information

6G Training | Federal and Defense 6G Applications Training

DoDAF Workshop, Business process management (BPM) applied to DoDAF covers all aspects of BPM applied to DoDAF 2.0’s All, Capability, Operational, Systems, Services viewpoints and Data and Information Viewpoints.

DoDAF described Viewpoints and Models in the Operational Viewpoint (OVs) have to ideally  describe as-is vs. to-be tasks and activities, operational elements, and resource flow exchanges required to conduct operations.

Operations, their relationships and rules shall be captured, analyzed, modeled, and redesigned using BPM techniques and disciplines.

During the DoDAF workshop, students will discover how BPM can be applied to DoDAF as a set of management disciplines. BPM will treat DoDAF activities and business processes as assets that directly contribute to DoD enterprise performance by driving DoD operational excellence and business agility.

DoDAF workkshop with BPM shows how modeling and governance of DoDAF  activities and processes will improve agility and operational performance.

During this workshop we focus on a structured BPM approach employing methods, policies, metrics, and software tools to continuously optimize an DoDAF activities and processes.

DoDAF workshop

Essential elements of DoDAF workshop with BPM

The most critical disciplines for DoDAF success can be related to nontechnical issues, such as changing people’s attitudes and assumptions based on process perspective, evaluating business performance and more.

These essential elements of DoDAF workshop with BPM consist of:

  • Comprehending DoDAF activities and processes through business process modeling for visualization
  • Using different tools to capture, model, design or redesign, test, measure and maintain business activities
  • Model a new business process, change the existing business processes, document and draw business processes using diagrams
  • Capture business rules applied to DoDAF Viewpoints
  • Evaluating process performance with creating key process metrics
  • Generating options for performance improvements through process and activity analysis
  • Gaining the willingness to change the processes from the stakeholders involved
  • How to Address the enterprise concerns associated with the overall vision for transformational endeavors
  • How DoDAF capabilities and activities (operational activities) are organized in a hierarchal structure.
  • How DoDAF Operational Activity Model relate the context of capabilities and activities (operational activities) and their relationships among activities, inputs, and outputs; Additional data can show cost, performers or other pertinent information
  • Identify and Create Operational Rules that constrain the operation by describing the activity (operational activity)
  • Create State Transition Description to describe operational activity (activity) and identify business process (activity) responses to events (usually, very short activities).
  • Create Event-Trace Description to describe activity (operational activity) and to trace actions in a scenario or sequence of events
  • How to map OV-6c and relate them to the SV-6 in BPM
