SysML Workflow Forum (SysML-WF)


Since 2017


The objective of prostep ivip's SysML WF project group is to identify the needs and requirements of industry with regard to both the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) itself and SysML tools. Based on the use case "Cross-enterprise model exchange throughout the entire development cycle (from requirements management to verification and validation)", which is particularly relevant to industry, the project group is examining to what extent today's solutions and the modeling language support the needs of the users and what has to be done to achieve full industrial applicability of SysML in the context of model exchange in the future. On the one hand, best practices for dealing with the challenges that system modeling currently poses are to be developed on the basis of the requirements identified. On the other hand, the working group aims to address the identified requirements relating to the SysML language and implementation of the corresponding tools in the respective committees.

Milestones 2020

In 2020, focus was placed on establishing a common reference process for collaboration over the entire product development cycle and on the further development of concrete use cases and requirements. These were used to identify the need for optimization and to make the functional requirements for cross-enterprise collaboration derived from them available to the new Implementor Forum, which was also set up in 2020. As from the beginning of 2021, the Implementor Forum will act as a technically oriented committee that deals with the practical implementation of the functional requirements.

Outlook 2021

In 2021, focus will continue to be placed on specifying additional use cases and requirements for cross-enterprise collaboration in greater detail. These will be supplemented by test cases during the course of collaboration with the Implementor Forum and then transferred to the SyML-IF for further processing. An in-depth exchange of information and ideas and a regular platform for discussion between users and implementors will also be pursued in 2021.
