Figure 1. Diagram. Traffic Analysis CMF concept.
The figure is a conceptual illustration of the traffic analysis capability maturity framework.
The figure is anchored in the middle by the eight dimensions in the middle layer, labeled Dimensions. The eight dimensions are Culture, Workforce, Collaboration, Business Process, Supporting Data, Analysis Process and Documentation, Tool Availability and Capability, Performance Estimation and Measures. Culture, Workforce, Collaboration, and Business Process fall under Business and Relationship-Oriented. Supporting Data, Analysis Process and Documentation, Tool Availability and Capability, and Performance Estimation and Measures fall under Technical Traffic and Analysis-Oriented.
Underneath each dimension are Sub-Dimensions. The items below culture are understanding role and value, cost acceptance, and management and operation modeling. The items below Workforce are workforce development and current staffing KSAs. The items below Collaboration are intra-agency and inter-agency. The items below Business Process are scoping, administration, institutionalization, and archiving and maintenance. The items below Supporting Data are data requirement setting, data analytics, multiple data sources, data exchange, and data management. The items below Analysis Process and Documentation are analysis approach, advanced and emerging strategies, VC&V, and analysis reporting and documentation. The items below tool availability and capability are tool selection and tool availability. The items below Performance Estimation and Measures are measure selection, measure estimation, and measure use.
Above the dimensions are the Levels of Capability, shown by an arrow leading through, from bottom to top: Level 1. Performed, Level 2. Initiated and Managed, Level 3. Established, and Level 4. Integrated and Optimized.
