Creating a Concept of Operations Guide from your Model

What’s a Concept of Operations Guide?

A business doesn’t have to be very large before it becomes too complex to understand.

In larger Enterprises, sometimes no one really knows how it works completely, even at a high level. People know about their area, but that might be it. 

That’s why we’ve created the ability to export your model into a Concept of Operations Guide.

It contains all of your model information in a format that supports business planning and optimization, as well as IT portfolio management and capital allocation.


What does a Concept of Operations Guide contain?

A Concept of Operations Guide contains the following:

  1. Business functions
  2. Business information
  3. Flows
  4. Business components

and if you are using AIM Portfolio Management, it also contains:

  1. Drivers
  2. Goals
  3. Projects and work packages


How do I create a Concept of Operations Guide

You need to download and install the AIM Server, and then choose File > Export > Concept of Operations, enter a file name, then click Export.
