UPDM2 — It's not possible to show that a resource configuration realizes two or more capabilities at different periods of time

  • Key: UPDM2-4
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16577
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Dassault Systemes ( Dr. Aurelijus Morkevicius)
  • Summary:

    It is not possible to show that a resource configuration realizes two or more capabilities at different periods of time. It is because increment and out of service milestones are not related to capability. By not having this relationship all periods of time that are described by milestones are applicable to both capabilities realized by the same resource. For instance I want to say that my configuration X will realize capability A starting from 2010.01.01 till 2011.02.12 and will realize capability G starting from 2011.03.01 till 2011.04.12. As I've mentioned before milestones that are holding the date values are not related to capabilities, so what I get is capabilities A and G are realized by the resource configuration X in two periods of time (from 2010.01.01 till 2011.02.12 and from 2011.03.01 till 2011.04.12). By not having relationship between capability and a milestone I can say that for instance increment milestone holding date 2011.03.01 is incrementing G capability. But it can increment A capability as well.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UPDM 2.0.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Leave it how it is. This information needed to be captured as it is outside the scope of MODAF STV-3

    Add guidance to the spec in the context of the framework that a person is using. Text added to STV-3 description in the model

    Add the following text to section A.1.5.4 StV-3/CV-3 and section B1.5.4 StV-3/CV-3

    The IncrementMilestone and RetirementMilestone in UPDM originate from the MODAF framework. They tie to a PhysicalArchitecture/ CapabilityConfiguration and if the latter is indicated this in turn ties to a Capability since it is a CapableElement that exhibits a Capability. Capabilities are by themselves timeless i.e. it should not be possible to associate Capabilities and time directly. If an IncrementMilestone connects to CapabilityConfiguration X at time T and this configuration realizes Capability A, it cannot at a later time also realize Capability B without something having changed, i.e. there has to be a CapabilityConfiguration X’ that is tied to an IncrementMilestone where capabilities A and B are realized. It is suggested that these two CapabilityConfigurations are treated as versions of a CapabilityConfiguration master (SV-8).
