BACM — Touchpoint notion does not require query capability

  • Key: BACM-23
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. James Rhyne)
  • Summary:

    The notion of Touchpoint as defined in the RFP does not IMO require the open-ended query capability included here. Which is completely under-specified. On the other hand it does not seem to provide the Though it does say (in 8.2) “2) the modeling tool can integrate the BACM model with another model using a supplementary metamodel to join the concepts in the BACM metamodel to the concepts in the other model;” it does not provide that metamodel or any more details. It seems to me that this is what the RFP was looking for.specific links between classes in different metamodels that the RFP seemed to have in mind. Rather than allowing modelers to link specific elements from different models, it requires them to formulate some sort of query.

  • Disposition Summary:

    The issue is moot as the query mechanism is not present in the beta specification

    This issue was addressed prior to the release of the beta specification as the query mechanism in the submission was replaced by the external reference mechanism adopted from SysML V2. This change was approved by the AB.
    However, an example was presented in Annex B of the beta specification, and this example has been removed in Ballot #1 of this FTF. So there is no longer any substance to this issue.
