The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) v1.5 describes 29 distinct architecture products but provides limited guidance on their development. Furthermore, existing guidance specifying a static list of products may detract from the creation of those products critical to system success. Therefore, using a unique combination of systems architecture, decision analysis, and scheduling heuristics, we analyzed the value of individual products and established associated goals for their development. A key observation from this research was the fact that the stakeholder values attributed to various products did not necessarily align with existing DoD guidance. The resulting insight enables decision-makers to more effectively guide the development and sequencing of specific products.
