Abstract:

A proposed capability delivery ontology with fog of emergence provides a language construct to relate how the processes and parts of a notional capability delivery system incrementally produce and refine a capability through well-known life cycle phases. The natural propensity for capability delivery organizations to perform these life cycle activities using intended missions and requirements instead of as-deployed missions and emergent traits give rise to the fog of emergence that obscures the organizations perception of the capability as it is taken through its life cycle. Through capability delivery ontology, the embedded fog of emergence is used as a prism to separate the white light of capability performance into its constituent colors of as needed, as-planned, as-known, and as-deployed perceived by the capability delivery organizations.
