Abstract
The Department of National Defence (DND) wants to greatly reduce the life-cycle costs and procurement times for new systems and to ensure that new systems will interoperate with existing ones. To do so, the concept of capability engineering has emerged. It will help to quantify what capability is required, evaluate options to achieve it, procure the best system, and manage the system throughout its life cycle. The Collaborative Capability Definition, Engineering and Management (CapDEM) Technology Demonstration Project (TDP) is developing the processes and tools to enable capability engineering within DND. The processes are expected to rely heavily on Modelling and Simulation (M&S) and so an Integrated Synthetic Environment (ISE) work stream was created. Its mandate is to identify the processes, tools, and standards that are necessary to support various M&S activities within CapDEM. This report discusses the M&S requirements of capability engineering; the need for a comprehensive M&S Development and Execution Process (MASDEP) and an integrated software development methodology; the need for a common modelling language to be used throughout; current M&S standards, including several under development; and a vision of the processes, tools, and standards to be developed.
