Todays needs for interoperability and portfolio management, across military organizations worldwide, lead to increased focus on architecture development. Architecture frameworks are sponsored by Defense Departments in Australia, Canada, France, Korea, United Kingdom and United States. The majority of todays efforts in architecture development focus on generation of disparate architecture views, seemingly without the benefit and rigor offered by systems engineering. This paper describes the DoDAF validator--a Model Based Systems Engineering MBSE approach to the architecture development process. The approach is an extension to a proven systems engineering process that creates a win-win scenario for executive oversight team as well as the operational and engineering communities. The process also ensures that interoperability based on executable design verification leads to program success and consistent and accurate architecture perspectives for further analysis.
