2. Решили:
-- обратиться в SEMAT с предложением о совместной работе.
-- утвердили Проект возможного соглашения (см.ниже).
-- поручили Андрею Байде координационную работу по заключению и выполнению этого соглашения.

Проект соглашения между SEMAT и Русским отделением INCOSE
INCOSE Russian chapter pay a lot of attention to proper description of systems engineering practices and methods. Situational method engineering standards like OPFRO OPF, SPEM 2.0 and ISO 24744 were discussed at chapter’s meetings and conferences and had been used for structuring systems engineering experience of chapter members. Initiative of SEMAT was supported by several Chapter members in 2009 year and since then chapter members pay much attention to SEMAT work.

SEMAT have an attempt to formulate second generation of situational method engineering standard that is more convenient to developers to use than to methodologists to model. Draft of OMG Essence standard is culmination of first effort to establish new level of methodology representation. Moreover, this standard establishes not only Language for methodology modeling but small and robust Kernel.

INCOSE Russian chapter and SEMAT have confidence that despite Language and Kernel have roots in software engineering domain it is possible and fruitful to have systems engineering adaptation. This is already was the case with SPEM 2.0 when first version has “software process engineering” in its name while second version has “software and systems engineering” in its name.

Currently systems engineering has no means to capturing of it methodologies. Deficiencies of OMG SPEM 2.0 and ISO 24744 already described in OMG Essence documents. Current systems engineering methodologies description efforts have no meta-model, ontology nor other formalization means. SEBoK is simply a book and wiki website, contemporary systems engineering standards like ISO 15288 have no formal background and theory in their base. Contemporary dozen of existing model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodologies have mostly informal descriptions with a couple of exceptions for SPEM 2.0 based variants.

Thus there is a need to elaborate further OMG Essence to establish strong theoretic base for description of MBSE endeavors by generalization of “software system” up to general kind of system-of-interest. It is discussible if we can stretch this generalization to some most exotic kind of MBSE, namely system of systems (SoS) engineering and organizational engineering. Next we should develop kernel extension for modeling model-based and model-driven (with generative design and manufacturing) types of systems engineering practices.

For this purposes INCOSE Russian chapter:
-- recommend Essence as a preferable standard for systems engineering methodologies description projects, including usage in systems engineering tutorials and curriculums
-- perform efforts to harmonize Essence with other standardization recommendations (e.g. ISO 15926 initiatives, i.e. try to map Essence to ISO 15926 to have compatible form of Essence representation for contemporary CAD/CAE/PLM systems and issue trackers)
-- appoint liaison (Andrey Bayda) that will be representative of it in SEMAT research and standardization activities,

-- will support initiatives to generalize Essence domain for at least systems engineering (not specialty engineering as it is now).
-- help with advice and modeling expertize for systems engineering practices modeling efforts of INCOSE Russian chapter.
-- recognize INCOSE Russian chapter liaison (Andrey Bayda) to perform coordination work.
