Key goals of the Modeling Standards MBSE Activity include:
The INCOSE MBSE Initiative serves as the voice of MBSE user community to standards development organizations that develop standards for modeling languages and frameworks, mappings and integration of content across these frameworks, and libraries of standard content for reuse across application domains.
Taxonomy of modeling standards. Following are some initial, but incomplete, classifications for modeling standards:
Roadmap of modeling standards of importance for MBSE:
At the March 2012 meeting of OMG, a discussion at the Systems Engineering SIG recommended that an initial MBSE standards roadmap should track those standards under some level of active consideration and coordination by existing MBSE-related activities at OMG and INCOSE. The following tables are the start of this roadmap, and gather together the standards identified in discussion and outreach activities to date, both within OMG and from the other challenge and activity teams of the INCOSE MBSE Initiative.
The following table lists those standards for which an active contact has been identified to maintain its own summary page and to maintain communication and coordination for potential application to MBSE needs.
|Organization||Summary Page for Standard||Category|
|OMG||OMG SysML||Modeling Language|
The following table lists standards which have been identified as potential additions to the list of MBSE-related standards, pending an active contact and/or more detail about its application to MBSE needs.
If you would like to become the primary contact to maintain a summary page and any other relevant information for any of the following standards, please feel free to edit a page by adding a row to the table above and editing a page using this template. Such a page can provide outreach for the standard to the MBSE community.

Following are past presentations at the INCOSE 2011 and 2012 MBSE Workshops:
|2011-01-30||Modeling Standards Day 1 Presentation||Roger Burkhart|
|2011-01-31||Modeling Standards Day 2 Breakout Presentation||Roger Burkhart|
|2012-01-21||Modeling Standards Day 1 Presentation||Roger Burkhart|
In his INCOSE 2012 MBSE Workshop Presentation above, Roger Burkhart proposed that the Modeling Standards taxonomy and roadmap might fit within a larger taxonomy and roadmap of modeling solutions and practices, including types of models, modeling languages and frameworks, libraries and reference data, services and capabilities (such as model management, transformation, etc.), methodologies, best practices, guidelines, etc.
In the 2012 presentation above, this was called a Modeling Solutions Architecture, but it might also be called a Model-Based Engineering (MBE) Adoption Architecture, or other label to be defined. It would define a kind of Enteprise Architecture framework for any organization to establish a roadmap of available resources and solutions to phase in and phase out over time, in support of their MBSE and larger MBE initiatives. Existing modeling standards as well as active standards developments projects are just a thin slice of the commercially available as well as purely local solutions that any organization needs to plug into the slots of a generic architecture.

Note: some of this material can now migrate into the MBSE Standards Roadmap pages.
Once filled in, this section will provide a catalog of modeling standards projects, organizations, and classifications, by which the Taxonomy and Roadmap of MBSE Modeling Standards can be maintained in an online form. Each project will be invited to maintain its own detailed reference information.
The Modeling Standards group of the MBSE Initiative will continue the key coordination roles of the original Model Driven System Design Working Group (MDSD WG) with external standards development groups that focus on providing coverage for model-driven methods. MDSD was responsible for establishing liaisons and formal Memoranda of Understanding with both OMG and ISO TC184/SC4 for the development efforts that led to SysML and ISO STEP AP233. With the transition of the MBSE Initiative to part of the INCOSE Technology Operations organization, the previous work of MDSD is being moved to this MBSE Activity.
The current status of AP233 is that it is being prepared for publication by ISO. A presentation covering this and some recent pilot projects was given at the MDSD WG meeting at the 2010 INCOSE IS and provided here.
An INCOSE webinar on “AP233 Systems Engineering Overview” was presented on August 18, 2010. An archive of the webinar is available from the INCOSE webinar event page.
