The current report describes in details the fourth version of the Capability Engineering Process (CEP) elaborated as part of the project Collaborative, Capability, Definition, Engineering and Management (CapDEM). This process enables executives of the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces (DND/CF) to make better-informed strategic decisions regarding capabilities. The CEP ( index.htm) introduces rigorous ways to increase strategic agility of capability management in a world in constant evolution through an accelerated production of relevant information. A CEP application provides a set of options addressing a given capability gap or high-level need. Among benefits, this process: (1) provides decision makers with timely strategic information through an iterative and incremental approach; (2) reduces time spent on unrealistic options by pruning the solution space as early as possible; (3) provides operationally acceptable strategic options with direct involvement of the operational community into the solution development; and (4) provides feasible options by ensuring commitment and participation of all organisation’s functional components: Personnel, R&D, Infrastructure, Concept development, Information management, and Equipment (known as PRICIE).
