OV-6a Operational Rules Model

An OV-6a "Operational Rules Model" specifies operational or business rules that are constraints on the way that business is done in the enterprise. At a top-level, rules should at least embody the concepts of operations defined in OV-1 "High Level Operational Concept Graphic" and provide guidelines for the development and definition of more detailed rules and behavioral definitions that should occur later in the Architectural definition process.

The intended usage of the OV-6a includes:


At the mission-level, OV-6a may be based on business rules contained in doctrine, guidance, rules of engagement, etc. At lower levels, OV-6a describes the rules under which the architecture behave under specified conditions. Such rules can be expressed in a textual form. These rules are contrasted with the business or doctrinal standards themselves, which provide authoritative references and provenance for the rules (see StdV-1 Standards Profile). Operational Rules are statements that constrain some aspect of the mission or the architecture. Rules may be expressed in natural language (English) in one of two forms:


- The DoDAF descriptions in this website are very generic and are mostly taken from the DoDAF Architecture Framework website. Make sure you visit the actual website for the most update information and a more thorough explanation of each viewpoint.  
- DoDAF Version 1.0, although outdated, has some good examples on how to construct AV's, OV's, SV's and TV's.
