  • Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®)
    Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®)
    OMG UAF Co-Chairs: Matthew Hause, PTC; Graham Bleakley, IBM; Aurelijus Morkevicius, No Magic Recorded: Dec 6 2018 55 mins
    The Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) specification is used for modeling systems of systems. UAF was developed by a diverse group of tool vendors, end users, academia, and government representatives at the OMG. It has the full support of the US Department of Defense (DOD) and the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). It is a DOD mandated standard. Its foundation in UML/SysML improves the integration between architectural framework modeling and system modeling to support post-acquisition lifecycle design and implementation.

    This presentation provides an overview of SysML, a brief introduction to how UAF will provide a standard means of expressing DoDAF, NAF and MODAF using SysML, an overview of the UAF views and viewpoints and language concepts, and selected sample problems to demonstrate how the language can be used.

    This presentation will cover the topics of:
    •UAF modeling as part of the systems engineering process
    •Using capability and systems models to avoid the problems of stovepipe development
    •Using strategic, acquisition and systems modeling to ensure that systems deployment is in line with capability deployment requirements
    •Transitioning from a system of systems to systems development
    •Integrating requirements management into architecture modeling and the development lifecycle
    •The future of architecture development
  • Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) Risk-Based Analytics
    Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) Risk-Based Analytics
    Dr. NIck Mansourov, KDM Analytics Recorded: Dec 4 2018 25 mins
    The OMG® Systems Assurance (SysA) Task Force is working on Model-based Cybersecurity Assessment (MBCA). MBCA is a risk assessment paradigm that emphasizes the use of rigorous models, analytics, and automated tools and best practices for the repeatable assessments of the cybersecurity of systems. MBCA is aligned with Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and emphasizes leveraging engineering models for the purposes of risk assessment. This presentation will discuss how to use MBCA with the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) to identify, analyze, classify and understand cybersecurity threats and related risks. This assessment will help stakeholders determine where to focus mitigation efforts, budget and resources.
  • FACE™ Profile for UAF®
    FACE™ Profile for UAF®
    Sarah Douglass, Senior Systems Engineer, MITRE Recorded: Dec 4 2018 11 mins
    An increasing number of government and pubic sector organizations are seeking to architect systems based on the Open Group's Future Airborne Capability Environment™ (FACE™) architecture design. For this to occur, FACE modelss must be aligned to supporting DODAF and NAF views and viewpoints, and integrated into the broader set of organizational architectures and models. The C4I DTF is seeking to develop a FACE profile for the OMG® Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) aligning FACE concepts into the UAF's ontological foundation and subsequently into DODAF and NAF.
  • Data Distribution Service™ (DDS™)
    Data Distribution Service™ (DDS™)
    Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Co-Chair OMG DDS Special Interest Group, OMG Board of Directors, and CTO, RTI Recorded: Dec 4 2018 51 mins
    The Data Distribution Service™ (DDS™) is a middleware protocol and API standard for data-centric connectivity from the OMG®. This presentation will cover the use cases of DDS and share example implementations of the DDS standard. DDS integrates the components of a system together, providing low-latency data connectivity, extreme reliability, and a scalable architecture required by business and mission-critical Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
    In a distributed system, middleware is the software layer that lies between the operating system and applications. It enables the various components of a system to more easily communicate and share data. It simplifies the development of a distributed system by letting software developers focus on the specific purpose of their applications rather than the mechanics of passing information between applications and systems.
  • OMG Modeling Language Standards
    OMG Modeling Language Standards
    Ed Seidewitz, CTO, Model Driven Solutions, co-chair of OMG fUML, Alf and PSCS RTFs, and Model Interchange SIG Recorded: Nov 26 2018 42 mins
    Software Systems, hardware systems, business systems - the mind reels at all that we are building or modernizing today. Can we possibly handle the complexity and achieve reliability? Yes, we can, by creating models. A model is a concrete representation of the often abstract, hard-to-comprehend aspects of a system. With models, we can understand requirements, analyze problems, and design solutions, whether for a system to be guilt or an existing one under study. And, crucially, we can also use models to communicate within and between teams. But clear communication requires the use of a common language backed up by a common community of practice.

    This is exactly what OMG modeling language standards provide: a broad suite of industry-defined languages, with extensive tooling support, for modeling all sorts of systems: Unified Modeling Language (UML), Systems Modeling Language (SysML), Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) and Decision Management Model and Notation (DMN).

    But if you are new to this richness of standards, it is sometimes hard to know where to begin! this presentation will give you a concise overview of how these standards came to be, how they are being applied today and how they are continuing to evolve to meet growing user expectations. At the end of this presentation, you should feel comfortable with the breadth of modeling languages that the OMG has to offer and be ready to explore them in a bit more depth in subsequent presentations. Recorded live in Ottawa, September 2018.

  • Data Provenance and Pedigree
    Data Provenance and Pedigree
    John Butler, Principal at Auxilium Technology Group and Co-Chair OMG Provenance and Pedigree Working Group Recorded: Nov 7 2018 24 mins
    Every wonder about the source of a seemingly legitimate post on Facebook or even in a mainstream media publication? How about the source of the food you're eating? If E.coli is found is produce from a particular farm, how do we know what products to take off the shelf? How do we know that the electronic records from a business have been maintained appropriately? If they've been changed, who could have done it? To answer these types of questions, we need to understand how each "artifact" was created and then handled and by whom. Understanding the source and and/or process by which a piece of data was created is the lineage or "pedigree" of the data element. Understanding who has possession or custody of a data element in addition to who "owns" or has responsibility for it is the "provenance" The OMG Provenance and Pedigree Working Group has been developing a set of standards for tracking and exchanging information related to the provenance and pedigree of artifacts, whether they be data or physical objects. This presentation was recorded in Ottawa, Canada.
