Webinar 4 2015 - Model Lifecycle Management
Sample project presented during the webinar (requires Cameo Enterprise Architecture v18.1 and Document Modeling Plugin to run)
Today there is increasing recognition of the potential MBSE brings to system life cycle processes with the increasing complexity of systems and the demands of the global marketplace. In order for the practice to realize this potential, system modeling and MBSE must be part of the larger model based engineering effort, and integrate with other engineering discipline models and modeling activities across the life cycle of a system. This is placing increasing demands on the need for Model Lifecycle Management (MLM) as an essential part of an MBSE infrastructure.
The focus for this session is on our vendor experience and current best practices addressing MLM. The presentation provides a demonstration scenario to support exposing and exploring the significant challenges and issues facing MLM. We use this scenario for further analysis and as the subject to show how particular solutions and technologies address various MLM issues.
The session demonstrates
- Requirements specification
- Design specification
- Federation of UPDM and SysML models
- Model reuse
- Features modeling and variants specification using UPDM
- Trade-off analysis
- Model Collaboration
- Access control (CRUD)
- Web based model review and formal approval using new Cameo Collaborator
- Model and templates based documentation generation
- Multi-site support
- Model Development
- Configuration control
- Change management
- Model Use
- Traceability analysis
- Impact analysis
The presentation is based on the one delivered and very warmly accepted as part of the vendors challenge at the INCOSE workshop January 2015, in Torrance (California), United States. A description of the challenge scenario can be found here - Configurable UAV Scenario
