Essential DoDAF 2 + SysML Applied™: Tool-Independent edition

COURSE ID: WS-FDODE-SYS-TI
DESCRIPTION: This introductory DoDAF 2 training workshop provides students with a solid foundation for applying Model-Based Systems Engineering principles and best practices with the DoD Architecture Framework 2 (DoDAF 2) aerospace-defense industry standard framework. The workshop teaches students how to solve practical problems using using a pragmatic subset of DoDAF 2 viewpoints and SysML diagram types that are appropriate for their systems. Learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises.

This DoDAF 2 workshop edition is customized to use the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) standard as the specification language to specify DoDAF-compliant system architectures. SysML is the industry standard for specifying systems engineering applications. SysML is used in a manner that complies with the Unified Profile for DoDAF & MODAF 2 (UPDM 2) standard.

This DoDAF 2 workshop edition is tool-independent, and teaches the DoDAF 2 + SysML + UPDM 2 modeling techniques using whiteboards for hands-on practice sessions, without using any tool-specific techniques. For versions of this DoDAF 2 workshop customized for other specification languages (UML 2, ArchiMate 2) and popular visual modeling tools see the DoDAF 2 & UPDM 2 training page.
VENUE: Available Onsite or Online.
DURATION: 3-5 days (= 21-35 training hours; length depends upon optional learning modules selected)
AUDIENCE: Software Architects, Software Engineers, Software Developers, Business Analysts, Solution Architects, Systems Engineers, System Architects, Project Managers, and others who want to learn how DoDAF 2, SysML and UPDM 2 can improve how they architect, analyze, design, and manage complex systems will benefit from this workshop.
PREREQUISITES: Software or systems engineering experience in building large and/or complex software-intensive systems. No other experience or prior training is required.
COURSE AUTHOR & CHIEF INSTRUCTOR: Cris Kobryn is the Founder of PivotPoint Technology and is an internationally recognized expert in architecture modeling languages (UML, SysML, BPMN), enterprise architecture frameworks (DoDAF, UPDM, TOGAF), and Model-Based Engineering tools. Cris has been architecting and designing distributed computer systems for three decades, and is known for successfully leading the UML 1.x, UML 2.0, and SysML international standardization teams. Recently Cris designed the CyberML™ (Cyber Modeling Language™) to precisely specify Agile enterprise architectures that are scalable and cybersecure.
