Abstract : The DoD Enterprise Model is a representation of the activities and data of the entire Department needed to accomplish the defense mission, from warfighting to acquisition and logistics support. By managing such end-to-end activities and data from a DoD-wide perspective, defense leadership will be able to identify and eliminate waste, avoid duplication, cut response times, improve quality, and reduce costs. The model embodies top-level processes and standard data interfaces relevant to every DoD major mission and function. It provides a common basis for cross-functional coordination and collaboration. The resulting DoD Enterprise Model is the basis for defining, coordinating and integrating DoD missions and functions. It will enable the Department's leaders and managers to better understand and direct their areas of responsibility, and to integrate functional process improvement initiatives within and across functional and organizational boundaries.
