The business process and use cases describe the electronic publishing method of managing the SEBoK (Systems Engineering Book of Knowledge). The business process and use cases are created by David Lempia, Nicole Hutchinson, and Stephanie Enck for the MBSE INCOSE and OMG teams.

The SEBoK team wants:

  1. The SEBoK to be captured and shared in a collaborative environment.
  2. The SEBoK releases to be reviewed and managed with the potential to move to a more open business process model in the future.

SEBoK Stakeholders

The stakeholders for the SEBoK are as follows:

  1. Administrators - Setup, backup, and restore SEBoK information. Authenticate users of the SEBoK
  2. Authoring Team - Review comments and author new and existing articles
  3. Review Team - Review and comment on articles
  4. Publisher - Create a public viewable and editable version of SEBoK
  5. Public - Find, Read and comment on SEBoK articles

SEBoK E-Pub Business Process Model

The Electronic Publishing business process model describes how the primary stakeholders work with the system from the creation of a new SEBoK to the publishing of a release. The development space is a development working copy of SEBoK that is not readable by the public. The production space is the published copy of SEBoK that is readable by the public.
