***PLEASE DO NOT APPLY UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED SYS 183 TO AVOID APPLICATION DISAPPROVAL.*** SYS 383 teaches the process of, and motivation behind, using integrated architectures as a key decision support tool in the Air Force and DoD. Students are instructed on the integrated architecture requirements imposed by DoD and AF processes and the standard tools to support creating, analyzing, and using integrated architectures and architecture products. SYS 383 reviews the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF), version 2. The course employs lectures, examples, discussions and short group exercises to illustrate architecture products and processes. Upon completion, students will understand and value integrated architectures and the role of architecture in Federal, DoD, and AF processes and the relevance to decision-makers. Due to the rapidly evolution of architecture practices, policies and mandates we believe that students who took SYS 383 or its predecessor SYS 283 over two years ago consider re-taking the course to refresh their knowledge on current requirements.
