Summary
This monograph presents and illustrates in some detail an analytical framework and methodology for defense wide capability-area reviews and describes new enabling tools to support capabilities analysis and related trade off work within the Department of Defense and the military Services. The Building Blocks to Composite Options Tool (BCOT) is used to generate and screen preliminary options, and the Portfolio-Analysis Tool (PAT) enables users to evaluate in a portfolio-analysis structure those options that pass screening. Variants of the methods can be applied for analysis across capability areas
