SACM — Hierarchical Collections of Artifacts or Other Items

  • Key: SACM-15
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16513
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: MITRE ( Mr. Samuel Redwine)
  • Summary:

    Artifacts ­ e.g. documentation, test results, components ­ are often organized into subsets (of all artifacts) and subsuming subsets and these sets given labels and treated for some purposes as units. EvidenceElements and InformationElements are not shown as being possible to structure in this way (say by a looped composition or association “arrow”). Some structuring mechanism is needed for this.

    In addition, non-hierarchical structures also have uses

  • Disposition: Resolved — SACM 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Response: Check with TPK whether we intended to edit the model to include a self-inclusion loop on
    InformationElement? For non-hierarchichal structures can use “nature of dependency” RESOLUTION:
    This is already allowed in SAEM (and that's what we're sticking with)
    The SACM Evidence Metamodel provides a detail mechanism for achieving this (called EvidenceGroup).
    Disposition: Closed, no change
