All OMG work in progress deadlines in chronological order

BMI Requirements Management RFI (document bmi/2019-08-02)
Various organizations model business and technical requirements using their own structure, semantics, and languages, or using commercial tools that implement an implicit or explicit, proprietary model of requirements and their attributes. OMG previously defined a standard for the interchange of requirements, ReqIF (see Appendix A). This does not create a standard requirement model or language. Requirements are usually captured in the form of natural language sentences. A standard model and/or language to capture and manage business requirements has been on the roadmap of the BMI DTF for the last couple of years. Such a standard would, among other benefit: - Better define the meaning of requirements exchanged between the various parties involved in a supply chain. - Enable users to move their entire requirements model (not just a ReqIF extract) across requirements management tools, avoiding lock-in. - Enable analysis tools to validate requirements (e.g., in terms of their completeness and consistency) or to generate test scenarios

Risk Management RFI (document bmi/2019-08-01)
Specifications related to the modeling of risk management has been on the roadmap of the BMI DTF for the last few years. Various organizations maintain risk models using their own structure and semantics, and each risk modeling or analysis tool is based on an explicit or implicit model of how to describe risk and its attributes. A common risk metamodel (i.e., a model of how risk models are structured) would enable several usage scenarios: - enable consistent reporting to regulatory authorities (in a formal, computer-readable, auditable format), with common semantics across reporting entities; - enable the aggregation of risk across divisions and organizations, for example combining risk models from suppliers in order to create a complete risk model for a supply chain - enable users to move their risk models across risk modeling and analysis tools, avoiding lock-in. Several factors are contributing to the determination that a specific effort is needed at this point, and that it should start with an RFI.

Blockchain Ecosystem Interoperability RFI (document mars/2019-08-03)

Application Programming Interfaces (API) to Knowledge Bases (KB) RFP (document ad/2010-06-09)
The intent of this RFP is to request proposals for Application Programming Interfaces (API) to Knowledge Bases (KB). According to Wikipedia ([WIK-KB]), "a knowledge base is a special kind of database for knowledge management, providing the means for the computerized collection, organization, and retrieval of knowledge". This RFP targets mainly the basic administration services as well as the retrieval and the modification of knowledge in a KB designed specifically for use with knowledge representation languages supported by OMG standards, including but not limited to those supported by the Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM - Proposals are sought that create a common set of APIs and interfaces for accessing namespaces and IRIs (internationalized uniform resource identifiers), documents, and other common infrastructure, some of which is modeled, for example, in the ODM RDFWeb package of the RDF metamodel, regardless of the target representation language, for knowledge representation languages that can be serialized in XML. The primary target is for accessing such KBs in the context of a tool, such as a parser, ontology editor, inference engine, or other applications where a uniform set of APIs and related services is desirable. APIs and service interfaces supporting basic queries, such as those that can be represented in SPARQL, are also desired. While this API shall be independent from the way the KB was populated and how the KB is designed and organized, the resultant API(s) and services shall be designed to complement and work in concert with ODM. It is understood that this effort may necessitate modifications to the ODM, including collaboration with ODM revisions underway to support OWL 2. This RFP solicits proposals for the following:
  • API to retrieve raw information from a KB (resources, properties);
  • API to modify raw information in a KB;
  • API to query knowledge in a KB (i.e., through reasoning);
  • API to create instances:
  • API to administrate the KB: add, import or remove ontology

EDI Standard for Non-Medical Workplace Benefits Request For Proposal (document wb/2018-06-05)
Each Insurance Carrier has their own proprietary data format which aligns with their administrative systems. There tends to be a lot of commonality with regards to data needs between the various benefits administration platforms. To that extent, a common definition with a common vocabulary can be defined. As an industry, we are seeing a movement away from traditional worksite enrollment to a more group based approach. It is to this extent that a common definition will assist human resources information and benefits administration platforms in simplifying their Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) development based on this definition as it pertains to benefits enrollment. As each Insurance Carrier may also have unique attributes, underwriting and business rules, the flexibility for such divergences will be built into the common format. This will allow for communication on the more complex Insurance Carrier specific cases. The project objective is to develop a common specification among multiple Insurance Carriers for the transmission of member enrollment-related data and ongoing transactions for workplace benefits that are tested, adopted, and implemented.. The goal for the specification is that the resulting EDI feeds and data exchanges will be easily consumed by Insurance Carriers and developed by enrollment and benefits administration technology companies in the marketplace. Secondarily, by having a common specification, our long-term objective is to reduce customer onboarding timelines and reduce the ongoing costs to Insurance Carriers, benefits administration platforms, brokers, and employers. Such scalability is important given the changing landscape of benefits enrollment

Event Metamodel and Profile (EMP) RFP (document ad/2008-09-15)
This Request for Proposal solicits submissions for an Event Metamodel and Profile (EMP).

Additionally, UAF mechanisms (tables, aggregations, etc) are sought to support the organization and presentation of FACE architectural objects in UAF. This profile would provide a FACE-aware whole-enterprise context that places FACE components within a larger system-of-systems architecture, enabling description and analysis of the impact of the FACE components on complex systems.

Healthcare Ordering Service RFP (document health/2015-12-03)
The Ordering Service is intended to complement the existing portfolio of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) services on the HL7 / OMG services roadmap. It manages electronic interactions between an order source and those providing requested fulfillment services, specifically recognizing that the consequences of an order are not necessarily enacted by the initial recipient, but may only be realized after a complex, multi-step workflow. The Ordering Service also defines functional behaviors surrounding the querying and management of an Ordering Service Catalog. The general behaviors of ordering, order fulfillment and results reporting are supported by appropriate Ordering Service interfaces; these operations are thought to be common regardless of the service or item being requested. This RFP solicits proposals for the following: o All necessary order creation, modification, query and retrieval functionality exposed to clients using an order management interface. o Functionality for interacting with order service catalogs, order sets and order catalog management. o Functionality supporting a workflow interface through which a system might query for orders of interest, update an order's status, retrieve requirements important to successfully execute an order, and otherwise manage order workflow. o Functionality for monitoring order status and service operations, exposed as a) an order monitoring interface, and b) an ordering service monitoring interface. o An additional interface, the order notification interface, enabling one ordering service to notify another ordering service about additions or changes to the orders it maintains.

IDL4 to C# Language Mapping RFP (Clean) (document mars/2018-12-02)
Version 4 of the Interface Definition Language (IDL) specification extended the traditional IDL syntax and defined a comprehensive set of building blocks to categorize it. This evolution requires a new set of IDL to language mappings to leverage the new IDL constructs and to adapt to the new building block-based document structure. Moreover, it requires mappings to popular programming languages, such as C#, for which there was no existing language mapping. This RFP solicits proposals for an Interface Definition Language (IDL) to C# mapping.

  • A standardized Information Engineering data modeling notation with a mapping to the IMM metamodel

MDMI 2.0 RFP (document health/2017-03-08)
This RFP elicits a technical specification to address the above business needs. The MDMI 1.0 Specification addressed several of these considerations, but based upon industry implementation experience, enhancement areas have been identified and are the basis for conducting this revision effort. Previous goals addressed in the 1.0 specification (carried forward into this RFP) include: " Reducing significantly the cost and time needed to define data transformations from one message format to another. " Handle versioning issues as particular message formats evolve over time. " Allow the expedited adoption of new standards - as mapping the new standard to the existing standard will allow applications to continue to use the legacy standards thus greatly reducing the cost of new standards adoption. " Improve the interoperability and processing of end-to-end multi-step business transactions that are based on multiple message formats. Extending the functional coverage of MDMI 1.0, this RFP includes the following scope additions: " Make the MDMI Referent Index a component of the specification and add the capability to search and discover the precise Business Elements. " Make it easier for Healthcare Domain participants to understand and adopt the Standard. " Address the other issues already identified that will enhance the specification, identified in an MDMI Issues Document (health/17-03-02)

Metamodel Extension Facility RFP (document ad/2011-06-22)
This RFP solicits proposals for a Facility for extending and integrating metamodels that will complement and may eventually replace the current UML Profiles capability. The new Facility will be:
  • Able to replicate all of the semantic capabilities of the current profile mechanism;
  • Applicable to any metamodel or well-formed metamodel subset, not just UML;
  • Defined in a technically sound manner;
  • Able to define new diagram mappings;
  • Integrated with OMG platform technologies.

Multiple Vocabulary Facility (MVF) RFP (document ad/2016-03-04)
To facilitate the understanding of formal models by both domain experts and software engineers, there is a need to provide for formal association of model elements to the business concepts that they represent. Business concept definitions are expressed in natural language, and the community that shares a model may include speakers of different natural languages. Expressing concept definitions in the language most convenient to the audience is often needed in order to achieve consistent understanding. Expressing business concepts in terms of multiple, alternative languages is the role of a multiple vocabulary facility tool. While a modeling language implementation might provide such capabilities as well, the more general need is for the modeling tool to have access to model element concepts and their associations to alternative vocabularies so that the model elements can be created, displayed, and referenced with terms of a selected vocabulary. The creation of concept definitions and associated term sets shall be performed by individual model developers or developed and shared by consortia for domains of interest. Therefore the Multiple Vocabulary Facility (MVF) must support the creation and maintenance of concepts and associated vocabularies that can be shared in a standard form of import and export. To achieve these capabilities, this RFP provides for:
  • a standard means for representing the relationship between model elements and the corresponding business concept definitions and multiple term sets;
  • a standard means for accessing terms of a selected vocabulary to express a model element concept and to interpret a selected vocabulary term as a reference to a particular model element representing the associated concept.
  • a standard form for import and export of vocabularies.
It is expected that the capability for linking model elements to natural language terms and definitions in multiple languages would also be useful for MOF metamodels.

OARIS v2.0 (Additional Sensors) RFP (document c4i/2018-06-08)

Precise Semantics for Uncertainty Modeling (PSUM) RFP (document ad/2017-12-01)
Uncertainty has been studied in various fields, such as philosophy, physics, statistics, and finance, to describe a situation of lacking knowledge about the state of a system and/or potential future outcome(s). Uncertainty is gradually gaining more and more attention in system/software engineering these days. In particular, complex systems, such as cyber-physical systems and self-adaptive systems, typically operate in complex and unpredictable environments. It is therefore important to face, understand and explicitly specify/model uncertainty in system/software engineering. This RFP solicits proposals for a metamodel that enables the following: " Capturing uncertainty and its related concepts; " Enabling measurements of uncertainty and its related concepts.

Precise Semantics of Time for Foundational UML RFP (document ad/2017-12-07)
The objective of this RFP is to solicit specifications defining more precise semantics of time in the context of executable UML models, in order to allow model checking and to reduce ambiguities in such models. By semantics we mean the underlying meaning of models, that is, the constraints that models place on the structure and runtime behavior of the specified system. In support of this objective, the RFP solicits proposals for the precise specification of the behavioral semantics for the metaclasses related to the modeling of time in UML. Proposals shall build on the precise semantics of Foundational UML (fUML), which specifies the execution semantics of a computationally complete and compact subset of UML 2 to support execution of activities, and be consistent with the Precise Semantics of UML State Machines (PSSM).

REST for CORBA (CORBA-REST) RFP (document mars/2019-09-17)
This RFP solicits proposals for: defining a set of IDL annotations (IDL-RS) to decorate IDL constructs in order to expose the corresponding CORBA objects as REST services that can be consumed by REST client applications. defining Data Representation formats to externalize objects defined with the IDL Type Representation format. The proposals shall minimally address the JSON and XML data representation formats

RTPS TCP/IP PSM for DDS Interop RFP (document mars/2017-09-24)
The DDS Real-time Publish-Subscribe wire protocol (DDSI-RTPS) specification uses a Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) to describe a Platform Independent Model (PIM) of the interoperability wire protocol and its Platform Specific Mapping (PSM) to the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). The existing standard specifies only a UDP mapping of the PIM that allows conforming implementations to interoperate over UDP. The objective of this RFP is to define a standard PSM to the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), so that implementations conforming to this specification can interoperate over TCP. Responses to this proposal shall not modify or deprecate UDP-based interoperability or the RTPS PIM.

Robotic Service Ontology RFP (document robotics/2018-12-03)
A service robot is a robot that provides services to humans, or on their behalf, in the environment in which they live or work; by "service", we mean physical services as well as information services that operate in or interoperate with their surroundings, and that are primarily designed to support interaction with people. Service robots are typically designed for consumer rather than commercial purposes. They operate semi- or fully autonomously to perform the services they are designed to deliver, and are capable of decision making and acting in real and unpredictable environments to accomplish specific objectives. To describe the kind of services, capabilities and tasks that such robots might perform, including the terminology used to support rich interfaces between these services, components, sensors, and other elements in the robot's environment, common vocabularies or ontologies defining the robotic services, the related behaviors, the underlying components, and their interfaces are needed. The service robot industry is expected to grow substantially in the coming decades. However, there is no common understanding of the services that might be provided by these robots. We need a common vocabulary or ontology in order to describe robotic services and the components that comprise those services. Such an ontology will assist not only in communications among robots and between robots and the humans they support but will enable developers of both robotic services and robotic functional components to compose higher order robotic services from well-defined, consistent building blocks (components) and have confidence that the resulting services are consistent will work together as designed. IEEE [IEEE1872] provides an ontology that focuses on core (generic) terminology and capability of robot systems at a relatively high level. This ontology includes some basic concepts and definitions that can be revised and extended to meet some of the emerging requirements identified by the robotics community, but does not address requirements specific to robotic services, particularly for service robots (i.e., robots that are designed to interact with people), or meet the requirements specified herein. This RFP solicits proposals for the following: o A set of basic ontologies that provide a semantic model of robotic services and related robotic functional components that can support communications and interoperability between robotic services and enable composition of such services

Safety and Reliability for UML RFP (document ad/2017-03-05)
This RFP solicits proposals for a profile and/or optionally a model library for the Unified Modeling Language that enables the following: * Capturing safety and reliability information in a system model. * Reasoning on the safety and reliability information, both directly on the model and indirectly via model transformations. * Visualising safety and reliability information. * Exchanging safety and reliability information between a system model and external tools. * Tracing between safety information, reliability information, and other information stored in a system model.

Semantic Information Modeling for Federation (SIMF) RFP (document ad/2011-12-10)
The SIMF RFP asks for submissions for a standard that addresses the federation of information across different representations, levels of abstraction, communities, organizations, viewpoints, and authorities. Federation, in this context, means using independently conceived information sets together for purposes beyond those for which the individual information sets were originally defined. The purpose of SIMF is to help federate information across different authorities, vocabularies and formats. Current conceptual and logical information modeling approaches tend to be focused on a particular information modeling problem, using a particular technical approach. Examples of such technical approaches include object modeling, DBMS modeling and exchange schema modeling. SIMF seeks to address the problem of information federation by specifying standards for conceptual domain modeling, logical information modeling and model bridging relationships. SIMF submissions will define, adopt and/or adapt languages to express the conceptual domain models, logical information models and model bridging relationships needed to achieve this federation. Many if not all of these capabilities can be achieved with expert application of multiple standards and technologies. SIMF is intended to unify and tailor these capabilities, providing a standard for tools that reduce the barrier to entry and overhead required to achieve federated information.

Simple Electronic Notation for Sensor Reporting (SENSR) RFP (document mantis/2018-09-10)
This RFP solicits proposals for a metamodel suitable for describing serialized data streams emitted by sensors, and how that data should be interpreted. This metamodel shall allow the production of tools to enable automated, unambiguous interpretation of the emitted sensor data through configuration of a system, or production of code for execution. Self-contained environmental sensors are becoming ubiquitous in our daily lives, nowhere more so than in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) industry. The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is the leading IoT technology organization, and has been operating a number of official Testbeds for experimenting with hardware sensors in dynamically networked environments. These IIC Testbeds allow for systematic investigation of a number of applications, including health care, transportation and shipping, ecological resource management, and safe and efficicent tool use in industrial settings. One emergent need has been for the manufacturers of sensors to be able to publish the required interpretation of the data that they produce via an Electronic Data Sheet. Pursuant to that need, this RFP requests specification proposals that provide the following: - a platform and vendor-independent metamodel for describing available data provided by hardware sensors, - an optional library of data types to facilitate the above sharing of interpretation.

Space Telecommunications Interface (STI) for Software Defined Radios (SDRs) RFP (document mars/2019-09-21)
Space communications place Software Defined Radio (SDR) systems into environmental conditions where unique provisions are required to accommodate communication services specific to space missions (such as new frequencies, latencies, data rates, dynamic reconfiguration of components versus remote uploads and pre-planned communication, and resource-constrained platforms [SSDR]). The objective of this RFP is to expand the PIM and PSM for the Software Radio Components Specification [SWR] to support space communications. Toward this end, the proposed Space Telecommunications Interface (STI) specification must: 1) support the ability to collect and provide voice, video, data and networking signals to process and share communications throughout the spectrum agnostically for future space communications, 2) include a networking layer and 3) include standardized interfaces for interacting with networks that support cross-platform security measures. This RFP solicits proposals for a software radio profile for space composed of two parts: a PIM (Space_PIM) expressed in some combination of the most current version of UML and SysML supporting the software and system levels for space-based SDRs and a PSM for Space SDR interfaces (Space_PSM) expressed using the most current version of SysML.

SBRM RFP (document bmi/2019-06-04)
This RFP solicits a specification that complements established mechanisms for representation of structured data files submitted as business reports, typically financial reports to regulators, in formats such as XBRL, by - Applying a business modeling approach to report definition, making reports easier to develop; - Enabling business-level expression of rules in order to manage quality; - Facilitating reuse of information across multiple reports; - Allowing use with industry- or enterprise-standard information models and ontologies; - Allowing direct linkage with enterprise information sources for report data; - Providing alternative formats for reports to allow access by a greater variety of analytical tooling while providing interoperability with XBRL-based report definitions and report submissions.

SysML v2 API and Services RFP (document ad/2018-06-03)
This RFP complements the SysML v2 RFP, and specifies the requirements for an Application Programming Interface (API) that includes services to operate on SysML v2 models, and connect SysML v2 models with models in other disciplines. The API shall be implemented by SysML v2 modeling environments, and shall support a wide range of operations related to model query, model construction, model view/viewpoint management, model analysis, model management, and model transformation for SysML v2 models. A SysML model is typically used to represent the architecture of a system and needs to be connected to models originating from other disciplines to enable a seamless digital thread. These disciplines include, but are not limited to, mechanical, electrical, software, simulation, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, operations, and regulation. By including services to connect SysML models with models originating in other disciplines, this RFP is facilitating seamless interoperability to enable a truly integrated system model. This RFP is dependent on the SysML v2 RFP. The timeline for submissions in response to this RFP will follow the timeline of submissions in response to the SysML v2 RFP at least by one OMG technical meeting cycle.

Systems Modeling Language (SysML) v2 RFP (document ad/2017-12-02)
This RFP specifies the requirements for the next generation of the OMG Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML® v2) that are intended to address many of the limitations of the current version of OMG SysML® to enable the more effective application of model-based systems engineering (MBSE). In particular, the emphasis for SysML v2 is to improve the precision, expressiveness, interoperability, and the consistency and integration of the language concepts relative to SysML v1. SysML v2 will express the core concepts required to precisely specify a system, its elements, and its environment (i.e., the system model). The language will be specified as both a SysML profile of UML and as a SysML metamodel. A complementary SysML v2 API and Services RFP is intended to further enhance interoperability by specifying standard services to access SysML v2 models.

Tactical Decision Aids RFP (document c4i/2019-09-07)
This RFP solicits proposals for an interface within a Command and Control (C2) system for modular applications that assist users with their tactical decision making processes. Example decisions from the domain of military and operational Command and Control systems include: " Identification " Classification " Correlation " Threat Evaluation " Kill Assessment To provide decision support functionality, these modular applications must have access to information describing the current situation (tactical picture) as well as current tactical plans, actions in progress to support them and the resources at the system's disposal. These applications must also have the means to make automated recommendations and recommendations for user approval. Particularly to promote innovation, the interface specification must support the decoupling of these modular applications from the C2 systems to which they contribute.
