Abstract:

This paper describes the DoD Corporate Information Management CIM initiative, space forces, and space-based information systems used by the DoD. It then describes implications of CIM in the space industry. CIM is defined as a philosophy which has management and technical components. The CIM management philosophy includes concepts for standardization, system engineering, and the use of commercial systems and technology. The technical component uses the information engineering discipline to improve business processes. The paper provides examples of the CIM management philosophy in operation as well as opportunities for CIM application. Information engineering is described as it applies to space-based information systems. The appendix includes an illustrative example of the Integrated Definition IDEF methodology applied to the Tactical WarningAttack Assessment mission.
