Military Operational Capability Concept Training | OCD Training – Hands-on

Military Operational Capability Concept Training,OCD training is a 5-day bootcamp style training preparing attendees with Operational Concept and capability description, ConOps and requirements documentation.

Learn from the experts with recognized military systems engineering best practices how to develop operational concepts and new military capabilities during system development and documentation of those operational concepts in one or more operational concept documents. Learn DoD and NASA’s best practices and standard procedures to develop system operational concepts to support new capabilities leading to specification and development of systems including DoD’s Data Item Descriptions (DIDs), and NASA’s Data Requirements Documents (DRDs).

Duration: 5 days
