About this talk

Matthew Hause, Principal Consultant (System Strategy, Inc.) https://www.linkedin.com/in/matthew-hause-16a4165 Lars-Olof Kihlström, Principal Consultant (Syntell AB) https://se.linkedin.com/in/lars-olof-kihlstr%C3%B6m-6a7b13 Jennifer Russell, Program & Management Support Leader (Garver) https://www.linkedin.com/in/jennrussell In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln spoke of “government of the people, by the people and for the people.” The INCOSE Smart Cities Initiative (SCI) is proceeding along these lines to support municipal governments in considering people first in smart city efforts. This Initiative will support municipalities and public agencies in adopting Smart Cities technologies by applying systems engineering principles and tools. This Initiative will support holistic development of Smart Cities infrastructure and Concepts, Applications, Technology and Services (CATS) through an open framework. Their initial set of models and metrics focused on the people and communities to determine how a smart city can improve life for its residents. Towards that end, a modeling initiative using the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) to put the human at the center of the system. The model looks at a city as an enterprise to examine the organizations, people, and communities using the human factors set of views. As a city of any size is a complex system of systems, the initial model is focused on Unhoused/Homeless People, how they interact with other organizations and people in the community, and how to improve outcomes for both them and the city. This session addresses the SCI and its goals, and then shows how MBSE can help planners understand the problem before looking for solutions. https://www.omg.org/uaf/ https://www.omg.org/spec/UAF https://www.omg.org/omg-certifications/uaf-certifications-sponsorship.htm https://youtu.be/AWJk_7KtQ0w uaf-chairs@omg.org
