Abstract:

In response to the changes in the world environment, the DoD has adopted an integrated top-down capabilities-based planning and assessment methodology in response to the shortcomings in the previous modernization process. This new methodology includes a concept development process, a capabilities-based assessment process for developmental capabilities, a Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities DOTMLPF requirements process for non-developmental capability changes, and a new capabilities-based acquisition process. Capabilities-based planning begins with the concept development process Joint Concept Development and Revision Plan including development of effects-based Joint Operations Concepts JOC and Joint Functional Concepts JFC which describe planned future capabilities. The Joint Concept Development and Revision Plan defines a capability as, the ability to achieve an effect to a standard under specified conditions through multiple combinations of means and ways to perform a set of tasks. Finally, the process includes Joint Integrating Concepts JIC which couple one or more JOCs to one or more JFCs. The JICs identify the capability tasks with the associated performance standards needed to achieve one or more specific effects. The capabilities, associated tasks and performance standards serve as the input to the processes that establish new capabilities.
