Abstract:

Capability development is a complex process that requires significant science technology support and a rigorous analytical background. In the Australian Army, this need has led to the design of the Capability Options Development and Analysis System CODAS at the Force Development Group of the Land Warfare Development Centre. This document contributes towards analysis of CODAS as a system, the evolution of its architecture and its role as an analytical support framework for capability development in the Army. It also aims to reveal the potential of risk management as a valuable analysis and decision-making support tool belonging to CODAS. The application of risk management in capability development can be viewed as realisation of the CODAS methodology and thus raises the profile of CODAS in the Army Continuous Modernisation Process.
