UPDM 2.0 FTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

UPDM2 — Document still references DoDAF v1.5, when it should reference DoDAF V2.02

  • Key: UPDM2-12
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16912
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: MITRE ( Dr. Fatma Dandashi)
  • Summary:

    See Page 255 of the UPDM,

    “Table B.1 shows the traceability among UPDM stereotypes and DODAF 1.5/MODAF elements”

    The table column heading: “DoDAF 1.5 Model Elements”

    Page 275: “The scenario and modeling was easily updated to include UPDM concepts including US DoDAF 1.5.”

    Do a search and replace on all references to DODAF v1.5 in the UPDM v2.0 spec: dtc/2011-05-07

  • Disposition: Resolved — UPDM 2.0.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    This issue appears to be fixed, but we did a search on other references to DoDAF 1.5 that should be DoDAF 2.0 and we found that the description for the technical standards elements needed to be updated.

    Make the following change:

    "Replace the text of section UPDM L1: :UPDM L0: :Core: :TechnicalStandardsElements

    Section 1.4.4 of the DoDAF version 1.5 Definitions and Guidelines (Volume I): Define the purpose of the Technical View as follows:
    “The TV is the minimal set of rules governing the arrangement, interaction, and interdependence of system parts or elements. Its purpose is to ensure that a system satisfies a specified set of operational requirements. The TV provides the technical systems implementation guidelines upon which engineering specifications are based, common building blocks are established, and product lines are developed. It includes a collection of the technical standards, implementation conventions, standards options, rules, and criteria that can be organized into profile(s) that govern systems and system or service elements for a given architecture.”


    “UPDM 2.0 retains the TV Viewpoint which maps to the new DoDAF 2.02 StdV Standards Viewpoint. DoDAF Version 2.02, “DoDAF Viewpoints and Models: Standards Viewpoint” defines the purpose of the Standards Views. StdV-1 is a wider definition of the concept of “technical standard” than used in previous DoDAF versions. Such standards were restricted, for example, to ISO, OMG, OASIS, and similar standards) and could be found in the DoD IT Standards Registry (DISR). It now includes not only such software (information technology) standards but wider standards including hardware and other technologies. It includes protocols and data standards. It now is expanded to include technical, operational, and business standards defined liberally as well as guidance, policy, regulations, and laws applicable to the architecture being described. The StdV-1 is a set of such standards that applies to one (current) time-period. If emerging standards are addressed for a future period of time, a StdV-2 Standards Forecast should be completed as well. The purpose of StdV is both to specify the standards with which a project must comply as well as to planning for additional or future application of standards. The StdV collates the various systems, services, etc. with the rules (standards) that govern the implementation of the architecture. A typical StdV should reference elements used in the various other System Views (SV) (SV-1, 2, 4, 6), Service Views (SvcV-1, 2, 4, 6) and layers DIV (DIV-2 and DIV-3). Protocols often are Resource Flow descriptions defined in SV-2 and SvcV-2. The degree of compliance to standards may also be addressed in risk assessments."
