SysML Course Overview

The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a general-purpose modeling language for systems engineering applications. It supports the specification, analysis, design, verification and validation of a broad range of systems and systems-of-systems.

SysML was originally developed by an open source specification project, and includes an open source license for distribution and use.

SysML is defined as an extension of a subset of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) using UML's profile mechanism. The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a modeling language designed for systems engineering and based on the UML.

DoDAF Course Overview

The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), Version 2.0 serves as the overarching, comprehensive framework and conceptual model enabling the development of architectures to facilitate the ability of Department of Defense (DoD) managers at all levels to make key decisions more effectively through organized information sharing across the Department, Joint Capability Areas (JCAs), Mission, Component, and Program boundaries.

DoDAF defines a set of views that act as mechanisms for visualizing, understanding, and assimilating the broad scope and complexities of an architecture description through tabular, structural, behavioural, ontological, pictorial, temporal or graphical means.

DoDAF is suited to large systems with complex integration and interoperability challenges, and is apparently unique in its use of operational views detailing the external customer's operating domain in which the developing system will operate.

DoDAF 2.0 focuses on architecture data rather than on developing individual products. It achieves this by planning, developing, managing, and governing architectures through a coherent, structural model.

Course Objectives

·         To provide an awareness of the principles and concepts inherent in Enterprise Architecture

·         To describe the structure and content of DoDAF

·         To enable attendees to appreciate DoDAF

·         Understand the basic concepts related to DoDAF

·         Understand DoDAF Definitions and Guidelines

·         Identify the elements of an DoDAF implementation plan

·         Determine specific DoDAF artifacts and architectures requirements

Attendees Will Learn

·         Get an overview of DoDAF and how to use in their projects

·         Essential DoDAF concepts, terminology and notation

·         The purpose and use of DoDAF

·         The challenges of implementing DoDAF, including the technical and organizational issues

Tool used

Sparx Enterprise Architect

Pre-requisites

None

Who Should Attend

This course is ideal for anyone who is interested in leading architecture development projects or is interested in DoDAF including: System, Software, Solution and Application Architects,

Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) Overview

The Unified Profile for DoDAF/MODAF (UPDM) is the product of an Object Management Group (OMG) initiative to develop a modeling standard that supports both the USA Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF).

The Unified Profile for DoDAF/MODAF (UPDM) is a UML Profile (customization package) that supports organizing UML and SysML models in a manner that complies with the DoDAF and MODAF enterprise architecture frameworks.

UPDM includes the language extensions to enable the extraction of specified and custom views from an integrated architecture description. These views include a system's viewpoint (DoDAF Systems View) along with associated systems implementation standards (DoDAF/MODAF Technical View) within the context of the business or enterprise viewpoint (DoDAF/MODAF Operational View). The DoDAF/MODAF AllViews is also included.

UPDM allows the architecture model to include representation of an enterprise capability and strategic intent and the process steps associated with the procurement of conformant systems

Course Objectives

·         To provide an awareness of the principles and concepts of UPDM

·         To describe the structure and content of UPDM

·         To enable attendees to appreciate UPDM

·         Understand the basic concepts related to UPDM

·         Understand UPDM Definitions and Guidelines

Attendees Will Learn

·         Get an overview of UPDM

·         Essential UPDM concepts, terminology and notation

·         The purpose and use of UPDM

·         Gain knowledge to use the different UPDM (and DoDAF) viewpoints and to model the views using Sparx Enterprise Architecture tool.

Tool used

Sparx Enterprise Architect

Pre-requisites

None

Who Should Attend

This course is ideal for anyone who is interested in learn Architecture frameworks, want to gain knowledge to populate the architecture framework with the artifacts required to produce different views.
