DoDAF Viewpoints and Models
The DoDAF-described Models within the Systems Viewpoint describes systems and interconnections providing for, or supporting, DoD functions. DoD functions include both warfighting and business functions. The Systems Models associate systems resources to the operational and capability requirements. These systems resources support the operational activities and facilitate the exchange of information. The Systems DoDAF-described Models are available for support of legacy systems. As architectures are updated, they should transition from Systems to Services and utilize the models within the Services Viewpoint.
Names of the models and their descriptions (in the table below) are provided below.
Systems Model Descriptions
Uses of System Viewpoint DoDAF-described Models. Within the development process, the DoDAF-described Models describe the design for system-based solutions to support or enable requirements created by the operational development processes (JCIDS) and Defense Acquisition System.
Mappings of the Systems Viewpoint DoDAF-described Models, to the DM2 Concepts, Associations, and Attributes are in DM2 Concepts, Associations, and Attributes Mapping to DoDAF-described Models. The DM2 Concepts, Associations, and Attributes are described in the DoDAF Meta-model Data Dictionary.
