.NET

.NET is a Microsoft Web services strategy to connect
information, people, systems, and devices through its
proprietary software, but using open protocol
standards such as SOAP, WSDL, and XML (i
n contrast
with past uses of proprietary protocols and APIs?
such as COM and DCOM). This permits .NET
compliant products to interoperate with non
-
Microsoft software systems to the extent supported
by the exposed web services of a given application.

Abstract Class (UML)

A class that cannot be directly instantiated. Contrast:
concrete class.

Abstraction


1
)

A representation of reality defined as a problem,
process, etc
., that focuses on logical properties
rather than on implementation details.

NCOIC

)
The act of identifying the essential characteristics
of a thing that distinguish it from all other kinds of
things. Abstraction

involves looking for similariti
es
across sets of things by focusing on their essential
common characteristics. An abstraction

always
involves the perspective and purpose of the viewer;
different purposes result in different abstractions for
the same

things. All modeling involves abstrac
tion,
often at many levels for various purposes.

A kind of
dependency that relates two elements that represent
the same concept at different abstraction levels.

Services

Operational activity to access and use services found
through a capability interface as required by the
DIEA
. When logging in to the NCE, and when using
information capabilities, a user will access and use
various services within the NCE. The u
ser may need
CES or COI Services, and these services may reside
on any repository in the NCE

The ability and opportunity to obtain knowledge of

classified information. Persons
have access to
classified information if they are

permitted to gain
knowledge of the information or if they are in a place

Acquisition Phase

All the tasks and activities needed to bring a program
to the next

major milestone occur during an

acquisition phase. Phases provide a logical means of
progressively translating broadly stated capabilities

into well
-
defined, system
-
specific requirements and
ultimately into operationally effective,

suitable, and
survivabl
e systems

DAU

11/2009

Acquisition Plan (AP)

A formal written document reflecting the specific
actions necessary to execute the approach

established in the approved acquisition strategy and
guiding contractual implementation. Refer

to the
Federal Acquisiti
on Regulation (FAR) Subpart 7.1, the
Defense Federal Acquisition

Regulation Supplement
(DFARS) Subpart 207.1, and Acquisition Strategy

DAU

11/2009

Acquisition Program Baseline
(APB)

Baseline that reflects the threshold and objective
values for the minimum

number of cost, schedule,

and performance attributes that describe the
program over its life cycle. Cost values reflect

the life
cycle cost estimate (LCCE); scheduled dates include
key activities such as milestones and

the Initial
Operational Capability (
IOC); and performance
attributes reflect the operational performance

required for the fielded system. Key Performance
Parameters (KPPs) from the Capability

Development
Document (CDD) and Capability Production
Document (CPD) are copied verbatim

into the APB
.
The Key System Attributes (KSAs) from the CDD and
CPD that support the

Sustainment KPP are also
reflected in the APB. Other significant performance
parameters may

be added by the Milestone Decision
Authority (MDA). See Key Performance Parameters
(KPPs),

Key System Attributes (KSAs), and Initial
Operational Capability (IOC). (Defense Acquisition

Guidebook and JCIDS Manual)

DAU

Acquisition Strategy

A business and technical management approach
designed to achieve program objectives within

the
resour
ce constraints imposed. It is the framework for
planning, directing, contracting for, and

managing a
program. It provides a master schedule for research,
development, test, production,

fielding, modification,
post
-
production management, and other activitie
s
essential for program

success. The acquisition
strategy is the basis for formulating functional plans
and strategies

(e.g., Test and Evaluation Master Plan

Adaptable/Tailorable

An adaptable/tailorable joint force is versatile in
handling threat missions with equal success; scalable
in applying

appropriate mass and weight of effo
rt;
agile in shifting between different types of missions
without loss of momentum;

responsive to changing
conditions and environments; and whose leaders are
intellectually empowered by a background of

experience and education. Adaptability ensures that
th
e joint force can rapidly shift from one operation to
another across

the range of military operations, and
adjust operations based on changing conditions. An
adaptive mindset and flexible

force capabilities are
essential for success in countering the full
spectrum
of anticipated threats and challenges and enhance

the joint force ability to respond with unmatched
speed of decision and action.

thinking, planning,

Agility

Analysis of Alternatives

(AoA)


1
)

The evaluation of the performan
ce, operational
effectiveness,
operational suitability

and estimated
costs of

alternative systems to meet a mission
capability. The Analysis

of Alternatives (AoA)
assesses the advantages and disadvantages of
alte
rnatives

being considered to satisfy capabilities,
including the sensitivity of each alternative to

possible changes in key assumptions or variables.
The AoA is one of the key inputs

to defining the
system capabilities in the capability development
documen
t. (CJCSI

3170.01E)

DoDAF VI V1.5

AoA are an important element of the defense
acquisition process. An AoA is an analytical
comparison of the operational

effectiveness,
suitability, and Life
-
Cycle cost of alternatives that
satisfy established capability needs. Initially, the AoA

process typically explores numerous conceptual
solutions with the goal of identifying the most
promising options, thereby

guiding the Materiel
Solution Analysis phase [previously, "Concept
Refinement

phase"] (see section 3.3.3).
Subsequently,

at Milestone B (which usually
represents the first major funding commitment to the
acquisition program), the AoA is used

to justify the
rationale for formal initiation of the acquisition
program. An AoA normally
is not required at
Milestone C

unless significant changes to threats,
costs, or technology have occurred, or the analysis is
otherwise deemed necessary by

the Milestone
Decision Authority. For a joint program, the lead
DoD

Component normally is responsible

for the

preparation of a single comprehensive analysis.

The AoA assesses potential materiel solutions to
satisfy the capability need docu
mented in the

approved Initial Capabilities Document (ICD). It
focuses on identification and analysis of alternatives,

measures of effectiveness (MOEs), cost, schedule,
concepts of operations, and overall

risk, including the
sensitivity of each alternative

to possible changes in
key assumptions or variables.

The AoA also assesses
critical technology elements (CTEs) associated with
each proposed

materiel solution, including
technology maturity, integration risk, manufacturing
feasibility, and,

where necessar
y, technology
maturation and demonstration needs. The AoA is
normally conducted

during the Materiel Solution
Analysis (MSA) phase of the Defense Acquisition
Management

System (DAMS), is a key input to the
Capability Development Document (CDD), and
supports

the materiel solution decision at Milestone
A. (DoDI 5000.02 and JCIDS Manual)
