dc.description.abstractWhen called upon, the Department of Defense (DoD) typically organizes and integrates mission capabilities from across the enterprise, operates as a joint force, disassembles when the mission is complete, and prepares for the next potential mission. This dissertation presents an organizing construct and associative mapping tool that enables the systems engineering of this episodic joint operational mission capability. The Operational Mission Architecture Framework (OMAF) organizes the key elements of joint operational capability into an intuitive framework, orienting systems engineers to this critical perspective. With operational mission capability now in architecture form, enterprise architecture methodologies can then be applied directly to operational missions. The Operational Blended Architecture Map (OBAM) serves as the integrating mechanism. This blended approach allows the operational community to communicate in its own terminology with systems engineers, who, in turn, can execute enterprise-architecting activities in their own terminology, facilitated by this associative mapping matrix. OMAF/OBAM enables the desired top-down systems engineering effort for joint operational capability and Systems of Systems development. The cumulative effect of OMAF/OBAM provides the integrating function for a DoD capability development enterprise architecture. Without an enterprise approach, the DoD will continue to be challenged to deliver 21st century joint warfighting capability.en_US
