Industry models consist of models and standards. The following list identifies standards and standard groups which should be investigated and reconciled in terms of applicability to EATS:
- NIEM - National Information Exchange Model
- IMM - Information Management Metamodel
- An OMG effort. See content for this. It uses a Zachman matrix in a modified form. It woould be good to compare/contrast there "adaptation" to ours.
This is a wide space which varies in depth across various subjects. The core focus is on developing metadata, metamodels and metaprocesses which define "generic" schemes for defining and modeling ideas about "things" (systems and their components). In addition, it includes schemes for classification and semantic understanding of how things behave, and how things are "thought about." These then become an abstract catalog of components and characteristics that are the "Lego Blocks" for EATS modeling.
For example, the System Zoo, GoF and other patterns, Six Sigma tools, standard ontologies, national and international standards for classification (especially for statistics which are desired to be used within the modeling processes)
