The ASME MBE Standards Committee and all of its working groups held successful public meetings virtually during the week 30 MAR 2020 where progress was made. Below is an update from each working group.
The Framework Working Group kicked off its technical work the week of 30 MAR 2020. The Framework WG is focused currently on brainstorming the high-level concepts that together make up the structural definition of Model-Based Enterprise. The Framework WG strives to provide a graphical model with detailed descriptions to define the architectural structure of MBE.
Near-Term Strategy WG¶
The Near-Term Strategy Working Group has been converted into a chartered working group. We will be launching one or two projects in the coming weeks. Thanks to everyone who attended our meetings and signed up to participate!
The Terms Working Group has gathered an intital collection of MBE terms with normalized definitions. Definitions for approximately 45 to 50 terms have achieved consensus among the WG by following the WG's Guidelines for Good Definitions. Then, each definition gets validated through a data modeling and structure text proofing process. Furthermore, each term is associated within one or more term themes to allow for a group of terms to be evaluated and approved within a theme's context. Soon these top terms will be promoted for ASME Standard Committee review. The Terms WG would like to thank the many participants in the Terms WG for accepting the challenge of following the process that resulted in a strong normalized definitions and support for their important use-cases.
Use Cases and Model-Based Standards Development WG¶
The Use Case and Model-Based Standards Development Working Group began the first phase of the agile standards process development. The process is one of the first attempts to define a workflow for rapid standards development and member engagement by simplifying the steps and using a combination of SAFe and Scrum techniques to plan and execute activities. We will iterate and refine the process going forward to optimize the flow.
The working groups are still looking for participants. If you would like to get involved with any of the working groups, please send an email to Fred Constantino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
