The Department of Defense (DOD) has struggled with the systems development, integration and interoperability for more than 30 years. Despite the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DODAF) compliance requirement initiated 20 years ago to address these concerns, DOD agencies continue to struggle to deliver interoperable systems required for operations. The Monterey Phoenix (MP) approach shifts the paradigm underlying these DODAF views to focus on system behaviors and interactions rather than component functionality and the data flows between them. Although robust DODAF tools are available for model documentation, the MP Analyzer tool enables the system architect to reduce design complexity while quickly and easily exposing architectural flaws prior to implementation. This research defines DODAF models that can be generated using the MP approach to realize MP benefits such as automatic scenario generation and comply with DOD guidance. Using criteria established in this research, 16 of the 51 total DODAF models from five of the eight viewpoints are produced using data available in the MP approach. The value proposition to DOD programs is the ability to intercept design errors before they become costly system failures or rework requirements. Future research can validate the DODAF model generation from MP as it matures.
