UML::Artifact is Excluded But Specification Doesn't State With What Documents/Artifacts Are to Be Represented with Instead

  • Status: open   Implementation work Blocked
  • Source: Eclectica Systems Ltd ( Nic Plum)
  • Summary:

    In Table 4.2 UML::Artifact is defined as excluded.

    In previous versions there was a paragraph Figure A.4 - 'SysML provides the capability to represent a document using the UML 2 standard stereotype ┬źdocument┬╗ applied to the artifact model element. '

    This, whilst contradicting the exclusion of Artifact from SysML did at least define how artifacts/documents were to be represented. Now there is absolutely nothing other than we can't use Artifact.

    How are we supposed to represent a document? As there are few to no specialisation hierarchies in the specification it's almost impossible to see the thinking and, say, where / how deployedDocument fits into a taxonomy.

    I'm trying to create a SysML profile and I need to represent a Document, Standard, Contract etc - all artifacts in the UML sense but no idea what I should now be using in a SysML profile.
