Join the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management team at two upcoming events! See Updated Dates!

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Product Symposium
Where: Costa Mesa CA, in person only – register online
When: January 31 – February 1, 2023 – updated!

Come to IBM’s Costa Mesa office for two days dedicated to model-based systems engineering and product development. This symposium on January 31 features IBM technical and solutions engineers providing expertise on requirements management challenges, agile planning, Rhapsody, DOORS Classic and more. The following day is an open workshop with self-paced labs and subject matter experts present to answer questions about the full suite of ELM products.

OMG UAF Tool Vendor Roadshow
Where: In person Austin, TX and virtual – register online for free
When: December 7, 2022

The Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) is the latest modeling specification for systems of systems (SoS) modeling. It is designed to cover all the viewpoints from the latest defense architecture frameworks, namely DoDAF, MoDAF, NAF and others. The UAF is a very rich specification with several layers (domains) and aspects (“model kinds”) but applying in a real-life context can be quite challenging. One challenge is how to translate concepts of operation, existing and future capabilities, planning and acquisition strategy into a concrete UAF model. Another challenge includes how to properly use the various levels of abstractions across its domains to enable reuse across different concrete realizations.

During this presentation, the IBM Engineering team will describe how we transform concept-of-operations documents and requirements into an actual UAF model using an emergency response system, which is a SoS. We will demonstrate how the various UAF aspects are modeled, how the UAF modeling environment is integrated with a requirements management system, how the UAF technical views are integrated and transformed into SysML system models, and how roadmaps and plans are integrated with planning tools. We will also demonstrate how behavioral aspects of the SoS UAF models are simulated to validate them and reason about the behavior of the overall SoS. The presentation will include demonstrations using an actual set of tools typically used in such engineering environments.

The UAF Tool Vendor Roadshow on December 7, 2022 is part of the OMG Technical Meeting.
