ManTIS was chartered by the OMG Domain Technical Committee on Friday,
4-Oct-2002, as the Manufacturing & Utility Domain Task Forces were
dissolved. This new group effectively represents the merger of the two task
forces and expansion into subject areas closely related to Manufacturing and
Utilities, but with interest groups that go beyond those two categories.
ManTIS Charter: dtc/2002-10-02
The mission of the "Manufacturing Technology and Industrial Systems
Domain Task Force", ManTIS DTF, is to foster the emergence of cost
effective, timely, commercially available and interoperable software components
for the Manufacturing and Industrial Systems domain through the development of
standard interfaces using the OMG process. The ManTIS DTF will issue
specifications in the following industrial sectors:
- Industrial Processes
- Control Systems
- Recommend technology specifications based on OMG's Model Driven
Architecture (MDA) that enable interoperability, reusability and modularity.
- Encourage development of standard interfaces that encapsulate legacy
systems, enabling their integration and easing migration to new technologies.
- Encourage adoption of ManTIS-related OMG specifications by other
- Establish a working relationship with other Task Forces in both Platform
and Domain Technology Committees of the OMG to provide mutual support and
leverage for each other's specifications.
- Establish and maintain active liaison relationships with appropriate
external organizations in support of the preceding goals.
The most recent version of our roadmap will give you more information
about our planned activities.

ManTIS Meeting Minutes
20-24 June 2005, Boston Plenary Meetings:
PLM Services V 2. Lutz Lammer;
AB Reviewed the RFP on June 20, 2005. Several comments
were received. PLM Services V1 adopted in April 2004, finalized April 2005.
Current V2 focus is on digital engineering change request between supplier
and OEM. ISO 10303-214 (Specification Control and Process Planning)
development prompts V 2 effort. Scope of V2 aligned with Conformance Class
CC21 in AP 214. Some modeling issues and optimized queries to be included in

MOF model of EXPRESS. Effort may lead to an RFP or RFC. A substantial
portion of the mapping has been started and an initial draft may be
available in early July 2005.

ManTIS Road Map Working
- Click here for the
currently adopted roadmap.
- The Roadmap activities have been more closely integrated into Task Force
activities by creating a "standing" agenda item for ManTIS Plenaries.
A minimum of 15 minutes is devoted to review of the roadmap & suggestions
for its update.
Plenary Work Items
(not assigned to Working Group)
- Model Driven Architecture in Manufacturing
Status: Manufacturing is working out a framework for
model driven architecture to guide the recast of its previous and existing
work, and provide a blueprint for future work items.
