Abstract
The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces are currently implementing Capability Based Planning (CBP) as a core element of their overall business process. The Collaborative Capability Definition, Engineering, and Management (CapDEM) Technology Demonstration project aims to define and validate Capability Engineering (CE) as a new means to support CBP by introducing engineering rigour to the realization of a capability in terms of a system-of-systems construct. To further define and validate CE, a formal evaluation strategy has been undertaken to assess the three main axes of CapDEM: People, via a Capability Engineering Team; Process, via a Capability Engineering Process; and Materiel, via a Collaborative Engineering Environment. Based on an iterative approach, the evaluation will spiral through three developmental iterations: Exercises Alpha, Beta and Gamma. These exercises will help to identify the refinements needed to enable a rigorous CE process, along with an engineering team who will be engaged in the process, and a technological infrastructure that will facilitate its development and execution.
