Architecture frameworks for model based system engineering and enterprise architecture have been around for several years. The OMG has created a standard approach in form of the Unified Architecure Framework (UAF). Currently there are many things happening in the OMG regarding UAF and its uses. The presentations will cover:

  • Architecture framework history leading UAF
  • UAF updates and the current version in the form of UAF 1.2 as a profile based on SysML.
  • Work to create a version 1.3 with the addition of concepts dealing with mission engineering.
  • Ongoing work for UAF use for Model based acquisition handling (MBacq )as well as updates to the Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) to deal with models as reusable assets.
  • UAF version 2 required to deal with both SysML version 1.7 as well as SysML version 2.
