4.1 This Data Item Description (DID) contains the format and content preparation instructions for the data product generated by the performance of design of a solution to the end-use aspects of requirements and goals relating to an enterprise capability. The solution description is at the architectural level of detail, viz the level which defines a concept of implementation, the set of system major solution elements and their interfaces (external and internal to the solution), the key characteristics of each solution element, and the concept of interoperation of solution elements to satisfy solution requirements. The CONOPS/OSD is often used where human-based solution elements are involved.
4.2 This DID can be used when the capability developer seeks to define and record the conceptual solution to provide a capability, and wishes to communicate the operational aspects of the solution to stakeholders.
4.3 Alternative to the CONOPS/OSD, a System/Subsystem Design Description (SSDD) to DID PPA-003461 may be used. The SSDD describes the whole of the architectural (conceptual) design to the whole of the problem definition (not only the operational aspects of the problem definition). Thus, the SSDD is of broader scope than the CONOPS/OSD. The content of the CONOPS/OSD is subsumed within this broader scope.
