  • Summary:

    p39:Last sentences of 11.13 and 11.14: Is A and B intentionally exchange in "the truth of" parts of the two sentences?

    11.13: "An inference asserted between two claims (A � the source � and B � the target) denotes that the truth of Claim A is said to infer the truth of Claim B."

    11.14: "An AssertedInference between two claims (A � the source � and B � the target) denotes that the truth of Claim B is said to infer the truth of Claim A."

    I would expect that the inference of truth comes from the source and is asserted for the target so the other way than 11.14 Semantics part defines. [Remark: I am not a native English speaker so it might be strange just for me why the "said to infer" expression is used instead of "inferred from". I interpret "The truth of X is said to infer the truth of Y." as "Truth of Y can be inferred from the truth of X." or "The truth of X logically necessitates the truth of Y."- is it correct?]

    Add a Terminology Package Compliance point

    In the first sentence of section 2.1 change “three” to “four”; in bulleted list in section 2.1 add a fourth bulleted item “Terminology Model”; and add a new section “2.5 Terminology Model compliance point”, with the text “Software that conforms to the specification at the Terminology Model compliance point shall be able to import and export XMI documents that conform with the SACM XML Schema produced by applying XMI rules to the normative MOF metamodel defined in this entire specification. The top object of the Terminology package as a unit of interchange shall be the SACM::TerminologyPackage element.

    The Conformance clause identifies with clauses of the specification are mandatory (or conditionally mandatory) and which are optional for an implementation to claim conformance to the specification.”

The SACM 2.0 meta-model requires implementation of the Terminology Package in spite of the text of Chapter 2 on compliance points saying it is optional.

  • Key: SACM2-68
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: MITRE ( Bob Martin)
  • Summary:

    Because all the significant classes of the argumentation and artefact package inherit from ModelElement, and ModelElement must use the Description class to provide content (e.g. the text of a Claim), and Descriptions must (given the current multiplicity) contain an Expression object, both argumentation and artefact packages must use the terminology package.

  • Reported: SACM 2.0b1 — Thu, 29 Dec 2016 19:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — SACM 2.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    Fix model to allow Terminology Package to be optional as intended

    The multiplicity from TaggedValue to Expression and UtilityElement to Expression must be changed from ‘1’ to ‘0..1’ to allow this to be optional. In addition, a new attribute called “sExpression: String” (referring to ‘simple expression’) should be added to UtilityElement, and an additional attribute called “sKey: String” (referring to ‘simple Key’) should be added to TaggedValue.

    In Section 8.4 (The description of UtilityElement) the following text needs to be added:

    “Attributes
    sExpression: String – the text that describes the value of the UtilityElement”

    and

    “Constraints
    If an Expression class is associated (through the expression association) with UtilityElement then sExpression should be null”

    In Section 8.8 (The description of TaggedValue) the following text needs to be added to the current ‘Attributes’ section:

    “sKey: Expression – the text that describes the key of the tagged value”

    and the following text to the existing ‘Constraints’ section:

    “If an Expression class is associated (through the key association) with TaggedValue then sKey should be null”

    In the bulleted list in section 2.1; the title of section 2.2; the first sentence of the first and second paragraphs of section 2.2; section 2.3; the title of section 2.4; and the first sentence of the first paragraph replace the text “Argumentation” and “Assurance Case” with “Argumentation Model” and “Assurance Case Model” respectively and replace “Artefact model” with “Artefact Model”.
