About this course

The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) is an architecture framework for the United States Department of Defense that provides structure for a specific stakeholder concern through viewpoints organized by various views. DoDAF defines a set of views that act as mechanisms for visualizing, understanding, and assimilating the broad scope and complexities of an architecture description through tabular, structural, behavioral, ontological, pictorial, temporal or graphical means. It is especially suited to large systems with complex integration and interoperability challenges, and is apparently unique in its use of operational views detailing the external customer’s operating domain in which the developing system will operate.

Course Overview This 5 day course gives our comprehensive methodology to create operational, technical, and systems architecture views and products consistent with the DoDAF and DoD procurement and acquisition guidelines. Students will apply DoDAF compliance concepts, models and principles to design their own compliant system

Intended Audience Everybody interested in the terms, concepts and practice of architecture. Especially software architects looking for a senior role.

1.Multiple scenarios will be used for some complete or partial examples of DODAF modeling. For example, we will use a complete scenario modeling Search and Rescue.
2. Some tooling for selected modeling exercises will be included in the course. Also, quizzes will only be provided on a few of the modules due to time constraints. Everyone must take the Certification Exam, which will be corrected to 100%.
3. The emphasis in the course will be on understanding DODAF 2.02 overall, but the viewpoints in particular. Other more specialized areas within DODAF will only be briefed quickly for background information.

 A 100% refund, minus a 5% processing fee, will be given to students who drop or withdraw from the EA Principals, Inc. class no later than the 21st day prior to the announced scheduled start date. No refund will be given within 21 days of the published start date. Students missing a portion of a class, due to emergencies or unforeseen circumstances, will be able to attend the next class on the same topic for the days missed, without additional fee. Students need not reregister; however, they must notify EA Principals, Inc. (by email or telephone), so the registration fee for the makeup class can be waived and class logistics provided. Note: This refund policy does not apply if using special discount codes that have “no refund” specified in the usage instructions.
