The RFP is published [[http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?ad%2F2017-12-01|here]]. This RFP aims to awaken the awareness of uncertainty and pursue a common understanding of uncertainty in system/software engineering of complex systems such as cyber-physical systems and self-adaptive systems, by defining precise semantics for uncertainty modeling. This RFP solicits proposals for a conceptual model represented as a metamodel, which covers two aspects: 1) Capturing uncertainty and its related concepts and 2) Enabling measurements of uncertainty and uncertainty-related concepts. Please note that based on this core RFP, one can expect a future series of RFPs, which will cover the aspects of 1) enabling various uses of explicitly specified and measured uncertainty (such as facilitating decision making and enabling model-based testing), and 2) addressing various application challenges (e.g., in the domains of healthcare, autonomous driving, and robotics). ===== Uncertainty RFP Working Group Activities ===== The Uncertainty Modeling Working Group has been formed towards the submission of Uncertainty RFP to OMG®. See below for details. The working group will mainly focus on four packages: core concepts (WP1), uncertainty measurements (WP2), uses of Uncertainty Modeling (e.g., reasoning, simulation, analysis, decision making) (WP3), and application/domain specific requirements (WP4). ===== Documents (accessible to the RFP working group members only) ===== All meeting minutes, presentations and related documents can be found [[http://www.omgwiki.org/uncertainty/doku.php?id=start&ns=&tab_files=files&do=media|here]]. ===== Uncertainty RFI ===== The Uncertainty Modeling standardization has been kicked off at OMG® in September of 2016 at Chicago IL USA. The Request for Information (RFI) of Uncertainty Modeling at OMG® has been formally released and can be downloaded from [[http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc.cgi?ad/2016-9-2|here]]. The RFI response is officially due on 10 of February of 2017. Though the official deadline has passed, we are continuously accepting responses. ==== RFI Objectives ==== The intent of the RFI is to gather information for the purpose of guiding a group in its efforts to provide solutions to industry problems. The RFI process is used to canvass a targeted industry segment for one or more of the following purposes: * Acquiring industry requirements. * Identifying potential technology sources. * Soliciting input to validate the roadmap of the group. =====News===== ==== Presenting the Uncertainty Modeling standardization activities at OMG® Brussels Technical Meeting on June 7th, 2017 ==== This signifies the kickoff of the preparation of Uncertainty RFP. ==== Introducing Uncertainty to Requirements Specification/Modeling at SysML V2 RFP Requirements ==== A great initiative is being made to introduce uncertainty to specify/model requirements in the future standard of SysML V2.
