Meeting DoDAF 2.0, MODAF, NAF 3 and UAF needs

Your team will do a better job of mining available data, measuring and visualizing architecture and overall success factors resulting in improved project results.

  • Convey the knowledge faster and easier
  • Easily represent and communicate complex architecture
  • Reduce assumptions, misconceptions and risk

Provide Program Manager accountability including the enablement of net-centric processes and architectures, flexibility and responsiveness.

  • Meet standards and easily follow guidance
  • Understand risk/cost
  • Gaps are identified and eliminated

No Magic's MagicDraw solution greatly facilitates the efficient and effective deployment of IT resources. The tool automates and assists the process of resource allocation ensuring project critical project success.

  • Use "what-if" scenarios to confirm and calculate project success criteria
  • Quickly identify under or over utilized resources
  • Are the resources deployed in a project?
  • Ensure that resources are allocated to meet specific project goals

Metrics lead to program success. Employing MagicDraw in UAF promotes significant improvement in processes, program and people efficiencies as well as shorter cycle times. Rapidly see and identify data relationships and critical paths.

  • Align your operational metrics with your system metrics
  • Use "what-if" scenarios to optimize system and operational parameters
  • Use metrics to drive system design and operations
  • Trace metrics back to systems that fulfill them

Efficiency - Benefit from improved speed to deploy, optimized resource allocation, improved collaboration and reduced overall cycle times. Teams will find it easier to take the abstract and make it meaningful, and achieve net-centric results.

  • Be efficient and collaborative
  • Easily and quickly pass along knowledge and training to others
  • Achieve efficiencies because guidance has been followed
