Keynote 1 :
Moving Forward with SysML v2
Speaker: Sanford Friedenthal
SysML v1 was adopted in 2006 and has been a key enabler of model-based systems engineering (MBSE). Since that time, much has been learned about applying MBSE with SysML. The next generation of SysML (v2) is being developed by the SysML v2 Submission Team (SST) to provide capabilities that address the limitations of SysML v1 and enable the evolving practice of MBSE. This presentation summarizes the SysML v2 motivation, approach, and capabilities as we progress towards the final submission.
Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader and independent consultant in model-based systems engineering (MBSE). He was formerly a Technical Fellow at Lockheed Martin, where he led the effort to enable Model- Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system lifecycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the industry standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML ®) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006. He is now co-leading the effort to develop the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of ‘A Practical Guide to SysML’ and ‘Architecting Spacecraft with SysML’. He also led the effort to develop the Systems Engineering Vision 2035 for INCOSE.
Keynote 2 :
The Unified Architecture Framework: Creating Order out of Chaos
Speaker: Matthew Hause
In most creation myths the universe is created from chaos. Disorder, randomness, and impenetrable void are the normal states of affair until a supernatural being brings order to chaos. In Greek mythology chaos was the "first thing that came into being" according to Hesiod. In Japanese mythology the chaos deity was Ama-tsu-mika-boshi (天津甕星), interpretable as either "Dread Star of Heaven" or "August Star of Heaven"), also called Ame-no-kagase-o (天香香背男). He was originally a rebellious Shinto god, who would not submit to the will of the other Ama-tsu-kami. He was subdued by Takemikazuchi during his conquest of the land of Izumo. For Enterprise and Systems of Systems modeling, subduing chaos is the job of enterprise architects. They need to interpret, evaluate, and analyze the chaos from many different viewpoints and levels of abstraction over multiple timelines to a variety of stakeholders. Enterprise architects do not have a magical sword or godly powers, but they do have the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) to help them in their task. The UAF provides strategic, operational, services, system, personnel, project, standards, information, and security views at multiple levels of abstraction over time to support multiple diverse stakeholders and their needs. The cross-domain viewpoints also provide a means to cut across the different viewpoints, aspects and concerns. UAF architecture models provide a means to develop an understanding of the complex relationships that exist between organizations, systems, and systems-of-systems and enable the analysis of these systems to ensure that they meet the expectations of the user community. The UAF has its roots in military frameworks but is equally applicable to commercial organizations as well. This presentation will provide an overview UAF, where it comes from, future developments, and examples of where it is used, and how it results in tangible engineered systems.
Matthew Hause is a Principal Engineer at SSI, the co-chair of the UAF group and a member of the OMG SysML v2 specification team, and was a member of the OMG Architecture Board for 10 years. He has been developing multi-national complex systems for over 45 years. He started out working in the power systems industry. He has experience in military command and control systems, process control, manufacturing, factory automation, communications, SCADA, distributed control, office automation and many other areas of technical and real-time systems. His roles have varied from project manager to developer. His role at SSI includes mentoring, sales presentations, standards development, presentations at conferences, specification of the UAF profile and developing and presenting training courses. He has written over 100 technical papers on architectural modeling, project management, systems engineering, model-based engineering, human factors, safety critical systems development, virtual team management, product line engineering, systems of systems, systems and software development with UML, SysML and Architectural Frameworks such as DoDAF, MODAF, and UAF. He has been a regular presenter at INCOSE, the IEEE, BCS, the IET, the OMG, AIAA, NDIA, DoD Enterprise Architecture, Embedded Systems Conference and many other conferences. He was recently a keynote speaker at the Model-based Systems Engineering Symposium at the DSTO in Australia. Matthew studied Electrical Engineering at the University of New Mexico and Computer Science at the University of Houston, Texas. In his spare time he is a church organist and a grandfather to 5 mischievous children.
