BMMF2 — Remove SWOT from the normative model

  • Key: BMMF2-17
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11281
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Rule ML Initiative ( John Hall)
  • Summary:

    This suggestion came from Xactium, which has implemented BMM in its BMS product and has been providing feedback over the past couple of months.
    The BMM as published says "SWOT is one approach that can be used in making assessments. The Model does not specify SWOT as the technique. These categories of Assessment are illustrative."
    But these specializations of Assessment are built into the BMM. It would be better to define a generalized categorization structure and include SWOT as an example.
    Remove the descriptions of SWOT from sections 7, 8 and 9 to an Annex, including the definitions of the concepts. Say that SWOT is the default for assessment categorization recommended by the BRG, which originally developed the BMM.
    Replace the mentions of SWOT in sections 7 and 8 with a more general description of assessment categorization, referring to the SWOT Annex as the recommended default.
    Add the AssessmentCategory and the association illustrated below to the MOF model, and replace the SWOT model fragment in section 8 with this diagram:
    Note: I have used the CamelCase style for names proposed in the resolution of issue 10090.
    Add Assessment Category and the corresponding fact type to section 9, with SWOT quoted as an example.

  • Disposition: Resolved — BMM 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    1) Add the new concept assessment category and fact type assessment category categorizes assessment to the Concept Catalog.
    2) Add the corresponding class and association AssessmentCategory and AssessmentCategoryCategorizesAssessment to the UML/MOF model
    3) Add a disclaimer that the discussions of Assessment in Clauses 7 and 8 use SWOT for examples to illustrate the role of Assessment in the BMM. Other approaches can be used.
    4) Remove the SWOT entries from Clause 9.
    5) In an annex, define Assessment Categories for SWOT and say that they are a default set if the enterprise does not already have a preferred set.
