Introduction to the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) provides students with a hands-on opportunity for learning how to model the UPDM profile. The DoD and MOD organizations responsible for their respective architecture frameworks have been working toward a single definition. This work has progressed to the point where there is now a significant core of similar models which have been captured in the UPDM. This profile can be applied to the UML modeling tools that implement both UML and SysML. This course explores the use of UPDM to produce DoDAF 2 compliant models and views

Examples are used throughout the course to support the learning activities. The examples are be based on the Search and Rescue example in the UPDM specification or based on a real-world project provided by the organization being trained.
