Abstract : The Capability Engineering Process (CEP) supports decision-making regarding strategic investments required to address a capability gap. This process is elaborated within the Collaborative Capability Definition Engineering and Management (CapDEM) project. This report provides answers to fundamental questions regarding CEP goals, scope, inputs, outputs and conception principles. These CEP Foundations were obtained through several workshops involving CapDEM members and personnel of the Director General Strategic Planning (DGSP). One (1) main goal and six (6) secondary goals are used to position the CEP within the Capability-Based Planning (CBP) activities. Major stakeholders are identified and a preliminary list of inputs and outputs is proposed. Finally, sixteen (16) conception principles are stated in order to guide the development of CEP.
