Operational Analysis

UPDM 2.1 “Operational Activity” ⇒ “A logical process, specified independently of how the process is carried out. … An activity is an action performed in conducting the business of an enterprise. It is a general term that does not imply a placement in a hierarchy (…). It is used to portray operational actions not hardware/software system functions.”

SysML 1.4 “Use Case” ⇒ “…use case can also be viewed as functionality and/ or capabilities that are accomplished through the interaction between the subject and its actors…”

Curated Set

  • Operational Activities are placed here after peer discussion of the Proposed Set

Proposed Set

  • State your proposals here.

(Follow a pattern of [Tag Alias] Narrative sentential statements describing operational activity, not a System Function, Service Function, Requirement, Feature, or Benefit.)

Note that the first seven shown here are copied verbatim from the 2014 White Paper.

  • [OPA-INFO-101] A stakeholder of a Model/Model Element who is not the editor of the entire set of information within the Model/Model Element needs curated information within the model in order to make decisions or present definitive information to other parties.
  • [OPA-ARGU-201] During an exchange of information between parties engaged in argumentation, one party challenges the veracity of Model/Model Element information and the other party must obtain the provenance of the curated information in order to provide a warrant for the claims made by the information.
  • [OPA-NTFY-301] A stakeholder responsible for contributing to or curating numerous models has too little spare time to poll each model in their scope of responsibility; this stakeholder needs to be notified when an area of interest within a particular model is subject to access or modification by selected individuals or communities of interest.
  • [OPA-AWAR-401] Two or more stakeholders are collaborating on a common model yet are not present in the same actual meeting place. Lacking body language clues, the stakeholders need to receive indication of their peer activities within the shared model.
  • [OPA-SECU-501] A community of stakeholders with differing permissions to view, modify, and relate information form a joint venture that exploits their respective capabilities to solve a complex problem. Meanwhile, the providers of information retain their information confidentiality rights.
  • [OPA-DIFF-601] An organization is requested to describe, present, or instantiate a system that was created some past time even perhaps with different knowledge tools and by individuals no longer associated with the organization. During such a representation, the organization is requested to demonstrate the differences between the current systems and the legacy systems.
  • [OPA-SECU-550] An enterprise-scale team which aggregates functional and domain teams from a variety of corporations works contemporaneously and serially on a common problem that requires access to different model elements in different lifecycle phases, different levels of abstraction, in different disciplines, and with different information access rights.
  • [OPA-CREA-101] A stakeholder responsible for modeling a change request to an aspect of the system needs to relate the rationale and decision making criteria to the resultant model change to ensure other stakeholders comprehend the merit behind the change set.
  • [OPA-DIFF-610] Two or more stakeholders are collaborating on subsets of a common model. They modify an intersection of content contemporaneously yet in isolation to obtain two or more change sets that differ in their content. They need to merge their respective change sets with the original common model to obtain a well-formed union that is both syntactically and semantically correct.
