Add the element ResourceRoleKinds to the relevant diagrams in the UAF DMM

  • Summary:

    Submitted on behalf of Torsten Graeber in response to comments made by UAF group to queries previously submitted queries made by Torsten Graeber, June 2017

    System (specialisation of resource architecture) and Software, Hardware (specialisation of physical resource) are disjoint. No whole/part relationship for common superclass ResourcePerformer (or its superclasses) found. Or is ResourceRole to be used for this? UAFP describes ResourceRoleKinds, but they are not included in the DM2.

    Yes, Whole-Part is derived from the UML MM. Resource Roles are contextualised usage of ResourcePeformer and there is an Enumerated Type, ResourceRole Kind(Part, Component, Used Configuration,Used Physical Architecture,Human Resource, Platform, System, Sub Organization,Post Role, Responsibility Role,Equipment, Sub System Part,Hosted Software,Artifact Component,Natural Resource Component, Other) in the MM but this is not shown on the diagram. An issue will be raised to reference and show this on the diagram.

Make the relationship between the definition Statemachines (currently implicitly related to UML statemachines) and the definition of ResourceStateMachines more explicit for readers of the UAF.

    ResourceStateDescription can be assigned to ResourcePerformer and all subtypes. It is considered to be a state machine. However, no definition of state machine given

    Yes, the definition of Statemachines is derived from the UML MM.

Make the relationship between UML composition and aggregation (for the information model) and the use of whole/part in the UAF more explicit for readers of the UAF specification document.

  • Summary:

    Submitted on behalf of Torsten Graeber in response to comments made by UAF group to queries previously submitted queries made by Torsten Graeber, June 2017

    No evidence found to show structure of InformationElement, or any of its superclasses. However, Figure 6-14 of the example shows InformationElements with relationships. What is the UAF concept for this?

    Yes. Aggregation and composition relationships of types are implicitly derived from UML MM.

Make the relationship between UML and the decomposition of Activity based elements more explicit for readers of the UAF specification document.

  • Key: UAF11-2
  • Status: open  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Graham Bleakley)
  • Summary:

    Submitted on behalf of Torsten Graeber in response to comments made by UAF group to queries previously submitted queries made by Torsten Graeber, June 2017

    No evidence found in UAF M2 that supports decomposition of activities. Reviewed elements: OperationalActivity->Activity->MeasurableElement->UAFElement. Potentially OperationalActivityAction is the intended concept (see e.g. Figure 11-20 in the UAF example).

    Yes, it is implicitly derived from the UML Metamodel which allows the decomposition and reuse of Operational Activities as OperationalActivityActions.

Make the relationship between UML and BPMN for the representation the BPMN Start Event and End Event more explicit for readers of the UAF specification document.

  • Source: International Business Machines ( Graham Bleakley)
  • Summary:

    Submitted on behalf of Torsten Graeber in response to comments made by UAF group to queries previously submitted queries made by Torsten Graeber, June 2017

    Not clear how end and start point are identified. However, Figure 6-10 shows a BPMN example with events. What is the UAF concept used here?

    Yes, it is implicitly derived from the UML metamodel (Initial Node and Final Node) and the BPMN Metamodel (Start Event and End Event) upon which the UAF M2 for operational process is based. If required we can make It explicit in the UAF M2

    Think it also affects sample model doc, dtc/2017-05-13
