About the Presentation:
Specifying IT systems with confidence is highly problematic. Almost all modern MBSE methods are object oriented and deal with data-oriented systems in a very fragmented way. This makes it difficult to develop data centric IT applications using conventional MBSE approaches.
Information Lifecycle Diagrams (ILD) address this shortcoming of MBSE approaches by extending the SysML with data-focused views. An Information Lifecycle Diagram (ILD) lays out the various states of a primary Information Item over that Item’s entire lifecycle for a given scenario. It also specifies how the primary Information Item transfers information with secondary Information Items.
This presentation will describe the ILD and how it is applied to improve IT system specifications.
