View DODAF:Physical Exchange Specification

A Physical Exchange Specification (PES) provides a means of mapping between the entities or concepts in a tool-specific implementation of the DODAF

and the underlying DODAF repository.


It is implemented using an Extensible Markup Language (XML) Schema Definition - XSD. Each toolset used to create views/ architecture descriptions therefore has its own PES. A PES provides a mechanism to exchange the data in a DODAF model with another tool, for example a spreadsheet or a database or between versions of DODAF using XML documents.

One PES is generated for each DODAF model (‘architecture view’) in an architecture description.
