DoDAF Conformance

DoD Components are expected to conform to DoDAF to the maximum extent possible in development of architectures within the Department. Conformance ensures that reuse of information, architecture artifacts, models, and viewpoints can be shared with common understanding. Conformance is expected in both the classified and unclassified communities, and further guidance will be forthcoming on specific processes and procedures for the classified architecture development efforts in the Department.

DoDAF conformance is achieved when:

  • The data in a described architecture is defined according to the DM2 concepts, associations, and attributes.
  • The architectural data is capable of transfer in accordance with the PES.

DoDAF Journal

The DoDAF Journal is a community of interest based discussion board. The Journal includes descriptions of best practices, lessons learned, example views and DM2 datasets, DoDAF model templates, DoDAF meeting presentations, and tutorial materials, and reference documents. It can be used by reference, component, capability, segment, and solution architects and core process stakeholders. Any member of the DoDAF community may submit material for publication and an editorial board will work with the authors to determine appropriateness, ensure public releasability, and make any needed changes to content.
