Abstract:

This business plan guides investment and management priorities for Department of Defense Modeling and Simulation MS efforts. In recent years it became evident to DoD senior leaders that the original approach for managing the Modeling and Simulation MS enterprise did not sufficiently address the myriad of challenges facing the MS community in the 21st Century. Both the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review and the FY 2006 Program ReviewPDM mandated a new approach to reenergize DoD MS collaboration and management. Since that time, the Department has made significant progress in the management and employment of MS capabilities. Evidence of this progress includes the recently published DoD Directive 5000.59, the stand up of the Modeling and Simulation Steering Committee, the Modeling and Simulation Integrated Process Team and the establishment of the Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office. This document fosters coordination of the Services and communities empowered by MS to improve standards and increase visibility and interoperability. Throughout this plans development, careful measures ensured the end result was an enterprise-wide effort. That is, goals detailed throughout this plan are closely aligned with and support the goals set forth in DoD strategic documents including, the 2006 QDR, the National Defense Strategy, the Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Strategic Goals Implementation Plan and DDRE Strategic Plan.
