Applying UPDM 2 with MagicDraw

Training February 5 – 9, 2018

8:00am – 5:00pm

Description: Applying UPDM 2/DODAF/MODAF with MagicDraw is a 5 day course for Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM 2). The course focuses on implementation of UPDM 2 using core MagicDraw functionality and the MagicDraw UPDM 2 plug-in.

Course: This comprehensive course will help students to quickly improve planning and implementation of complex systems using UPDM 2 standards and the MagicDraw UPDM 2 plug-in. The training approach used assumes that many students have a basic understanding of DoDAF or MODAF and an understanding of how to describe an architecture. This course covers UPDM 2 in terms of the following architectural frameworks: DoDAF 1.0, DoDAF 1.5, DoDAF 2.0 (DM2) and MODAF 1.2 (M3). Contains lectures and hands-on practice on using UPDM2 for architecture development. Includes information on how to build complete and integrated architectures; Presents UPDM 2 and related standards UML 2, SoaML, and SysML where they apply to UPDM 2.
Shows how to implement and customize the DoD Architecture Framework; Covers complete UPDM 2 Models and Views. Presents a concise case study.

Course Materials: Students will receive printed course materials and a Magic Draw 30 day license key. Students must bring a laptop computer to use during the course.

Location: Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Library, Laurel MD, Building 200

Tuition Cost: $1,800 include Continental Breakfast, Lunch, and Afternoon snacks. No Refunds after Sept 1, 2017.

Integrated Program Management and Systems Engineering

Randall Iliff and Stephen Townsend

Presentation: One major effort of the INCOSE alliance with MIT and PMI has develop a book incorporating research our organizations have supported over the past three years focused on the integration of systems engineering and project/program management practices. In addition to research, alliance members contributed knowledge of the field, existing tools and standards, and a wealth of practical experience.

Speakers:  

Randall C. Iliff has over 35 years of experience leading development efforts and has participated in all project phases. He is a seasoned large-project PM, as well as a recognized expert in Systems Engineering.  Mr. Iliff is a charter member of INCOSE and currently serves as the INCOSE representative on an alliance between INCOSE, PMI, and the MIT Center for Program Excellence.

Stephen Townsend is PMI’s Director for Network Programs. In this capacity, he leads special program initiatives, including development of a practice guide on agile methods; and a book on the integration of program management and systems engineering with INCOSE and MIT’s Consortium on Engineering Program Excellence. Mr. Townsend has worked within PMI since 1999 in the areas of member services; chapter/community relations; business/government relations; and PMI’s global development activities. 

Menu: Curried chicken served over basmati rice, fresh vegetable of the day, rolls and butter, dessert cakes, a small Fruit Plate, coffee, and iced tea. Special Dietary menu available for Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free.

Description:

Digital Engineering: MBSE Approach for DoD

Ms. Philomena Zimmerman, Deputy Director, Engineering Tools and Environments,

Research and Engineering, Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD

 

Presentation:  Through the ODASD (SE), the DoD is establishing model-based methods, processes and tools for use in acquisition and acquisition related activities. The use of models as a technical means of communication within the systems engineering discipline is understood; but the full potential of the models to support activities in other disciplines is not yet realized. Part of overcoming this realization lies in understanding the basic language and artifact representations as they are; and another part lies in projecting/executing a path forward to keep a loosely coupled community which can take advantage of other’s successes and failures.

Speaker:  Ms. Philomena Zimmerman leads the effort to advance the use of model-based techniques to advance SE concepts in acquisition. She is responsible for establishing the effective use of modeling and simulation, as a systems engineering tool to support acquisition programs, as well as the related efforts in modular open systems architectures, intellectual property, and data rights. Her team supports updates to policy, guidance, and participates in program support activities that are conducted on behalf of DASD(SE). She is also the lead for the Acquisition Modeling and Simulation Working Group, coordinating among the Services and Joint Community on traditional modeling and simulation challenges and products for support to the acquisition community.
Menu: Bistro steak salad and honey mustard chicken wonton salad buffet, rolls and butter, dessert, coffee and iced tea. Special Dietary menu available for Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free.
