The DoDAF 2.0 Modeling with IBM Rational System Architect V11.4 course shows how IBM Rational System Architect supports the development and analysis of DoDAF 2.0 described models. The course focuses on tasks such as keeping models consistent, integrating information between views, performing gap analysis, assessing the impact of change, and generating standard DoDAF reports. This course consists of both lecture and hands-on exercises.
