Object Management Group BOD Adopts Unified Architecture Framework and Unified Component Model Standards

Needham, MA - October. 11, 2016 - TThe Object Management Group® (OMG®), an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium, held its quarterly Technical Meeting from September 12-16 at the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL, USA. At the meeting, its BOD voted to adopt three new standards:

  • The SysML® Extension for Physical Interaction and Signal Flow Simulation specification facilitates integration of systems engineering models with physical interaction and signal flow simulation models widely used in industry.
  • The Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) specification is the latest revision of the successful Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF™ (UPDM™) specification for representing DoDAF, MODAF & NATO Architecture Framework (NAF)-conformant architectures using UML® and SysML.
  • The Unified Component Model (UCM) for DRTE Systems is a new specification for defining, implementing and composing loosely-coupled independent components in Distributed, Real-Time and Embedded (DRTE) Systems. UCM builds on the strengths of the original CORBA Component Model™ (CCM™), to provide a middleware-agnostic platform that is already being actively used to create demanding component-based aerospace applications.

To view these and other OMG specifications, visit www.omg.org/spec/index.htm.

OMG Technical Committees voted to issue the Uncertainty Modeling RFI. The Uncertainty RFI solicits ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling in system/software engineering, in particular, complex systems, such as Cyber-Physical Systems that typically operate in complex and unpredictable environments.

  • Mr. Paul Lipton, CA Technologies (re-elected)
  • Dr. Jishnu Mukerji, HPE (re-elected)
  • Dr. Toru Shimizu, JASA (newly elected)
  • Dr. Jay Schnitzer, MITRE (newly elected replacing Dr. Mark Maybury)
  • Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Real-Time Innovations (re-elected)
  • Dr. Said Tabet, Dell (re-elected)
  • Mr. Hugues Vincent, THALES (newly elected replacing Virginie Watine)

During the week, OMG held informational events for the public:

  • Business Architecture Insurance Reference Model Workshop
  • Cyber Risk Summit
  • IIoT Challenges and Opportunities
  • Introduction to OMG's Modeling & Middleware Specifications Tutorial

All presentations can be found on the separate events' agendas here.

OMG members will meet in Coronado, CA, USA from December 5-9, 2016 at the Loews Coronado Bay Hotel. Learn more here.
