Systems Engineering with DoDAF Training

Systems Engineering with DoDAF Training Course Description

Systems Engineering with DoDAF Training covers the techniques, knowledge, and tools required to use complex engineering problems with DoDAF 2.02.

Systems Engineering with DoDAF comes handy when the main goal of systems engineering is to understand a complicated problem. In that case, graphic representations of the system are applied to interact a system’s functional and data requirements. Enterprise Architecture, DoDAF in particular, is one of these useful graphical representations. Systems engineering with DoDAF training teaches you how to apply DoDAF features in systems engineering.
