Introduction to SoS Operational Test and DoDAF Training covers Operational Test (OT) and Evaluation processes applied to System of systems engineering and integration using DoDAF viewpoints.

This introductory applied SoS Operational Test and Evaluation DoDAF 2.02 training workshop provides participants with a solid foundation for applying Model-Based Systems Engineering principles and System of Systems (SoS) Operational Test (OT) and Evaluation best practices with the DoD Architecture Framework 2.02 (DoDAF 2.02) standard framework. The workshop style 3-day training teaches participants how to solve practical Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) problems using a pragmatic subset of DoDAF 2.02 viewpoints and SysML diagram types that are appropriate for the system of Systems (SoS) Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E).
