Abstract:

This paper describes a Fleet-first methodology to generate Data Model 2-compliant architectures and use them to improve strategic and tactical readiness. Architectural design originates with mapping key capabilities to desired effects articulated by identified operational stakeholders, which lends the methodology to a Fleet-first perspective versus a system- or technology-first perspective. The Capability-Based Modeling Methodology identifies best practices for executing development of a Fleet-first architecture, and explains how each core model aids in managing specified data types and relationships. The paper concludes by discussing impacts on mission engineering from following a Fleet-first methodology.
