Information Exchange Framework Information Exchange
Policy-based Packaging Services (IEPPS) RFP:
The Information Exchange Framework (IEF) Policy-based
Packaging Service (PPS) will provide organizations an
automated way to apply user defined policies that govern the
sharing and protection of information.
Application Instrumentation RFP:
The goal of the Application Instrumentation standard will be
to to provide a standard method to collect and distribute
internal application data and status information for
Command, Control, Computers, Communication, and Intelligence
Dependability of Consumer Devices RFI:
This RFI is the first step toward standardizing the process,
methodologies, and tools to assure the software
dependability of consumer devices. Unlike industrial
machineries, consumer devices including automobiles, service
robots, consumer electronics, and smart houses refer to a
new category of industrial products used by general end
users. A supporting whitepaper is posted at
Information Modeling for Federation (SIMF) RFP:
SIMF will address the federation of information across
different representations, levels of abstraction,
communities, organizations, viewpoints, and authorities.
Federation, in this context, means using independently
conceived information sets together for purposes beyond
those for which the individual information sets were
Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML) RFP:
This RFP solicits proposals for a standard Interaction Flow
Modeling Language in terms of: concrete syntax, metamodel,
UML® profile and associated interchange format.
Precise Semantics of UML Composite Structures RFP: The objective of this RFP is to solicit specifications containing more precise semantics for UML composite structures and their extensions (e.g., profiles) to enable execution, model checking, and reduce ambiguities in UML models.
