AIR FORCE - AFPD 10-6
CAPABILITY REQUIREMENTS DEVELOPMENT
|Publication Date:||6 November 2013|
This directive prescribes policies and establishes responsibilities and authorities related to capability requirements development. Air Force organizations must use formal capabilities-based processes to identify, evaluate, develop, field and sustain capabilities that compete for limited resources. The intent of these processes is to facilitate timely development of affordable and sustainable operational systems needed by combatant commanders. Results of these processes will align with the National Defense Strategy, National Military Strategy and other high level strategy and planning efforts and will feed the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) process.
To ensure capability requirements development occurs continuously and collaboratively with other program stakeholders, this AFPD must be used in conjunction with AFPD 63-1/AFPD 20-1, Integrated Life Cycle Management, AFPD 90-11, Strategic Planning System and AFPD 99-1, Test and Evaluation Process.
