***PLEASE DO NOT APPLY UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED SYS 183 TO AVOID APPLICATION DISAPPROVAL.*** This course teaches the process of and motivation behind using integrated architectures as a key decision support tool in the Air Force. 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. Career field Requirement/Impact: Weapon System Architectures are required by DoD and AF processes. Similarly, Enterprise Architectures are required to meet Laws, Regulations and Policies, as well as to integrate the planning and execution of DoD capabilities. Without an understanding of “why architecture,” practitioners will likely expend resources checking squares without providing decision-quality information to DoD and AF Leaders .Utilization of graduates: Acquisition Program Offices (mainly, but no exclusively, system engineering) AF MAJCOM/JS/COCOM staffs particularly in the A8/J8, A5/J5, and A6/J6 organizations dealing with strategic planning, requirements, capabilities, and information infrastructure.
