Rolf Gubser and Markus Schacher will be holding a talk at the SWISSED 2016 about “Integrated Modelling for Engineering Complex Heterogeneous Systems”. The event will take place on the 12.9.2016, further details (ticket prices, tracks, speakers, etc…) can be found in the official flyer.
This years subject is “Systems Engineering for competitiveness” with an emphasis on :
- Systems Engineering applied to the Medical Devices Industry
- Defense and Aerospace Systems Engineering
- IoT / Industry 4.0
- Agile Systems Engineering
On September 24, 2015 the German magazine OBJEKTspektrum published an article written by KnowGravity Inc. and the Fraunhofer Institute containing a preview on the new standard “UML Testing Profile 2 (UTP2)”. UTP2 is a specification of the Object Management Group (OMG) currently developed by a consortium of European and US organizations to standardize Model-Based Testing (MBT) on the basis of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The article is available for download here (in German only).
This year KnowGravity Inc. will attend the “Swiss Society for Systems Engineering Day” (SWISSED) on the 9.9.2015 with a stand at the symposium!
As the Swiss Systems Engineering Society (SSSE) describes on their homepage, SWISSED is the annual symposium of the Swiss Systems Engineering Society (SSSE), also acting as the Swiss Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). They are offering a 1-day event bringing together first-class presenters and practitioners from across Europe, to share knowledge and experience on how to plan, develop and manage systems in an efficient and successful way.
At our stand you will be able to get information about all our services concerning – but not limited to – Systems Engineering, with an emphasis on the following subjects:
- Model-based risk analysis
- Model-based testing
- Model-based requirements engineering
The following link brings you directly to the symposiums programm: programm of the SSSED.
At the ISSRE 2014 (IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering) Markus Schacher from KnowGravity Inc. will be holding the KeyNote in the workshop track about risk, with the title “Model-based Risk Analysis in the Railways Domain”. Below you will find the abstract of the keynote:
Back in 2010 the Swiss Railways started an initiative to standardize the interfaces of their highly safety-relevant interlocking systems across all suppliers. As the leading contractor, KnowGravity Inc. approached this challenge in an entirely model-based way: from model-based requirements engineering in SysML, over executable specifications in xUML and model-based testing using the UML testing profile (UTP), down to model-based planning and document production. So, it was only natural to perform risk analysis in a model-based way as well. In this presentation I will show how we developed a formal model to predict and evaluate critical behavior of complex heterogeneous systems utilizing the mechanism of UML profiling. Developing a UML profile for risk analysis enabled us to apply common techniques such as HAZOP, FMEA, FTA and ETA using a commercial UML modeling tool. It also made tight model integration and comprehensive traceability between risk models and other languages implemented as UML profiles possible. I will discuss the organizational as well as technical challenges we were (and still are) facing, particularly the reuse of model elements across multiple systems and components to be able to “model by difference” the risk-related aspects of a whole family of systems.
After the approval of the request for proposal (RFP) for a new major revision of the UML Testing Profile 2 (UTP2) by the Object Management Group (OMG) – See UTP2 – RFP for details – the initial submission of UTP2 has been filed with the OMG on 19. Mai.
Lead by the german Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS in collaboration with KnowGravity Inc., UTP2 is being developed by an international consortium with members from Germany, Norway, France, Italy, the USA, and Switzerland.
UTP2 shall become the new world-wide standard language for Model-Based Testing (MBT).
After successfully submitting the Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new major revision of the „UML Testing Profile (UTP)“ to the Object Management Group (OMG), work has begun on the actual development of UTP2 back in January 2014. Lead by the german Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS in collaboration with KnowGravity Inc., UTP2 is being developed by an international consortium with members from Germany, Norway, France, Italy, the USA, and Switzerland.
