Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose the Composition Modeling Framework (CMF) as a standards-based information engineering methodology that tackles existing and emerging Department of Defense (DoD) interoperability problems using a bottom-up approach. We introduce CMF capabilities within the context of an information space composed of repositories and a catalog that enables consumers' and producers' information requirements to be met. This information space supports dynamic and unscripted interaction among various producers and consumers, but its power as an information management tool is best harnessed when its participants share common goals operating in unison as a Community of Interest (COI). We present the CMF as one approach for representing the structure, meaning and abstract implementation of the underlying information space that services a COI and its participants. In addition to facilitating intra- COI interoperability, we demonstrate how CMF concepts can be used to construct cross-domain interoperability solutions by supporting inter-COI communication and understanding.
