 Active Roadmap (RFIs, RFPs, RFCs):

Agent Metamodel and Profile RFP
The AMP RFP requests a metamodel and profile for extending UML with capabilities applicable to agents and agent-based software. Submissions developed in response to this RFP will achieve the following: Clarify semantics concerned with modeling agents. Establish Agent modeling best practices utilizing OMG technologies. Develop a MOF-compliant agent metamodel to be used either standalone or via extending the existing UML metamodel with agent modeling capabilities. Enable agent model interchange between tools via XMI. Optionally facilitate modeling of Peer-to-Peer, Grid and Cloud computing, and other technologies in terms of a collection of Agents.

Application Programming Interfaces (API) to Knowledge Bases (KB) RFP
According to Wikipedia ([WIK-KB]), “a knowledge base is a special kind of database for knowledge management, providing the means for the computerized collection, organization, and retrieval of knowledge”. This RFP targets mainly the basic administration services as well as the retrieval and the modification of knowledge in a KB designed specifically for use with knowledge representation languages supported by OMG standards, including but not limited to those supported by the Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM - http://www.omg.org/spec/ODM/1.0/). Proposals are sought that create a common set of APIs and interfaces for accessing namespaces and IRIs (internationalized uniform resource identifiers), documents, and other common infrastructure, some of which is modeled, for example, in the ODM RDFWeb package of the RDF metamodel, regardless of the target representation language, for knowledge representation languages that can be serialized in XML.

UML Testing Profile V2 RFP
This RFP solicits proposals for the following:
a UML Testing Profile as a successor specification of the UML Testing Profile 1.2
a UML Testing Profile that is applicable to a variety of domains and methodologies
a UML Testing Profile enables the specification of test cases for different quality attributes and on different level of abstractions
a UML Testing Profile that allows for test generation and the precise specification of test coverage

Event Metamodel and Profile RFP
The EMP RFP requests a metamodel and profile for extending UML with capabilities applicable to the sensing and interpretation of events, such as monitoring, filtering, aggregation, and correlation. Submissions developed in response to this RFP will achieve the following: Clarify semantics concerned with modeling events. Establish Event modeling best practices utilizing OMG technologies. Develop a MOF-compliant event metamodel to be used either standalone or via extending the existing UML metamodel with event modeling capabilities. Enable event model interchange between tools via XMI.

Foundation for the Agile Creation and Enactment of Software Engineering Methods (FACESEM) RFP (Adopted)
An agile
approach to software engineering methods is one that supports practitioners of software engineering (architects, designers, developers, programmers, testers, deployers, analysts and project managers) in dynamically adapting and customizing their methods during the preparation and execution of a project, controlled through company specific governance, use of examples and other means. This foundation is to consist of a kernel of software engineering domain concepts and relationships that is extensible (scalable), flexible and easy to use, and a domain-specific modeling language that allows developers to describe the essentials of their current and future practices and methods. These practices and methods can then be supported by tools based on this common foundation, and they can further be composed, simulated, applied, compared, enacted, tailored, used, adapted, evaluated and measured by practitioners as well as taught and researched by academic and research communities.

Information Management Metamodel RFP  
This RFP solicits proposals for a standard metamodel to address the needs of Information Management. This includes the scope of the existing Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) standard but is extQL DDL  UML2 Profile for Logical (Entity Relationship) Data Modeling, with a mapping to the IMM metamodel  UML2 Profile for XML Data Modeling, with a mapping to the IMM metamodel and XML Schema  UML2 Profile for Record Modeling, with a mapping to the IMM metamodel and COBOL Copybooks  A standardized Information Engineering data modeling notation with a mapping to the IMM metamodel.

Metamodel Extension Facility RFP
This RFP solicits proposals for a Facility for extending and integrating metamodels that will complement and may eventually replace the current UML Profiles capability. The new Facility will be:
o Able to replicate all of the semantic capabilities of the current profile mechanism;
o Applicable to any metamodel or well-formed metamodel subset, not just UML;
o Defined in a technically sound manner;
o Able to define new diagram mappings;
o Integrated with OMG platform technologies. .

MOF to RDF Structural Mapping RFP
RDF and Linked Open Data (LOD) have become important technologies for exposing, managing, analyzing, linking and federating data and metadata. This set of RDF based technologies, sometimes known as the “Semantic Web” or “Web 3.0”, are emerging as the lingua franca of data on the web. Major initiatives such as the President’s open government initiative are moving to the use of RDF & Linked Open Data as the foundation for publishing all government data and metadata in support of transparency. OMG & MOF based models should be a part of the LOD and Web 3.0 data cloud. The objective of this RFP is to define a structural mapping between OMG-MOF models and RDF to provide for better integration of MDA and LOD, to enable the ability to apply LOD capabilities to MOF compliant models and to make the information available in MOF compliant models available as LOD web resources. Any MOF based model should be able to become a LOD resource.

Ontology, Model and Specification Integration and Interoperability (OntoIOp) RFP
This RFP solicits proposals for the following:
-A specification for an abstract metalanguage with an associated metamodel targeted at cross-language interoperability among a class of concrete languages used to record logical expressions found in ontologies, models and specifications.
-A list of concrete languages and translations to be recognized and correctly processed by implementations of this specification.
-A description of constraints and conformance criteria for additional concrete languages and translations between concrete languages that are not explicitly supported, but nonetheless have equivalent uses that could be recognized and correctly processed by implementations

Precise Semantics of UML Composite Structures RFP
The objective of this RFP is to solicit specifications containing more precise semantics for UML composite structures and their extensions (e.g., profiles) to enable execution, model checking, and reduce ambiguities in UML models. By semantics, we mean the underlying meaning of models, that is, the constraints that models place on the structure and runtime behavior of the specified system.

SIMF (Semantic Information Modeling for Federation) RFP  
The SIMF RFP asks for submissions for a standard that addresses the federation of information across different representations, levels of abstraction, communities, organizations, viewpoints, and authorities. Federation, in this context, means using independently conceived information sets together for purposes beyond those for which the individual information sets were originally defined. The purpose of SIMF is to help federate information across different authorities, vocabularies and formats

UML Testing Profile 2 (UTP 2) RFI  
The purpose of this RFI is to solicit ideas, discussion, comments, recommendations, product information, user needs, and user experiences regarding the modeling of: - test specifications aspects such as test environments, test case specification, test case generation, test data, test objectives etc. - test management aspects such as test processes, test plans, test schedules, test results, roles and responsibilities etc. - test documentation aspects with respect to industry-relevant standards like IEEE:829:2008 [IEEE829] and/or ISO 29119 [ISO29119].
