KDM14 — Gap in KDM Platform Package

  • Key: KDM14-69
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15924
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Benchmark Consulting ( Alain Picard)
  • Summary:

    In the platform package we don't seem to have any direct way to express relations between AbstractPlatformElement and InventoryElement. A good example is how to describe the file in the inventory model that represents a certain deployed component.

    AbstractPlatformElement has a source relation to a SourceRef but here we're not dealing with a Source inventory element (not sure how often PlatformElement would really need this relation). The Build package uses the implementation relation which points to KDM entity to describe relations to inventory elements. Again here in the platform package this points to AbstractCodeElement only.

    I hate to have to use stereotypes to build such a basic relation.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Add TraceableTo relation to Inventory model

    In order to support arbitrary traceability links to InventoryItems, we use Figure 11.3, page 59 and add relation "TraceableTo" from KDMEntity to InventoryItem.
