3 Introduction

4 Introduction Problems Objective Approach Open Standards used
RM-ODP UML Profile for EDOC Introduction of Healthcare joint project

5 Problems Things which make enterprise system development more complex:
Endless development requests generated to meet a variety of requirements Requirements for integrating heterogeneous systems and technologies New requirements like enterprise collaboration and Web Services support pop up unexpectedly System integration requirements by mergers and acquisitions Understanding, development, and maintenance of enterprise systems are getting more difficult Is there any way to better handle or organize this enterprise system development?

6 Objective We need something for enterprise systems that:
makes it easier to understand makes it easier to communicate between subject matter experts Some kind of guideline for users to achieve above is the objective.

7 Approach “Divide and conquer” is the approach to handle complexity
Utilize usable International Standards and OMG Specifications for this purpose Develop guideline for using standards about: How to divide complexity Sample steps or process of thinking (development) What should be described in each divided area What pitfalls are With examples

8 Standards utilized RM-ODP (Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing) from ISO/IEC & ITU-T Viewpoints Fundamental concepts UML Profile for EDOC (Enterprise Distributed Object Computing) from OMG UML extensions based on RM-ODP viewpoint framework Business process, event, entity, relationship, component, pattern, technology mappings etc.

9 RM-ODP Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing
ISO Standards & ITU-T Recommendations Developed initially as reference standards for developing standards for open distributed systems Better to consider now as vendor neutral distributed system description framework Being adopted by OMG (OMA, Model Driven Architecture) Object Oriented Distinguishing feature: Five Standard Viewpoints defined for any system description

10 Five Viewpoints Enterprise Information Computational Engineering
Purpose, scope, and policies (not necessarily means “real enterprise”) Could be considered as requirements specification Information Meaning and processing of information Information model and schema Computational Functional decomposition (close to application objects) Could be considered as object model or component models Engineering Infrastructure to enable interaction between computational objects Could be considered as infrastructure/middleware for distributed processing systems Technology Choice of hardware and software, and conformance

11 Five Viewpoints Information Computational Enterprise Engineering
Target Enterprise Information Engineering Technology Computational

12 Five Viewpoints Viewpoint specification for each viewpoint
For one target system, at most five set of viewpoint specifications will be developed Those five set of specifications have correspondence among them, because those are the descriptions of the same target system (descriptions just from different viewpoints)

13 Application of viewpoints
Can start with any viewpoint, but it would be enterprise viewpoint if top-down approach for thinking and design is taken. Can apply at any granularity level For instance, at the level of:  International industry systems → National industry systems → Participating company’s system → Customer management system within company’s system → Security systems → Biomedical authentication system within security system → … Therefore it is import to clarify which target you are specifying.

14 Application at various levels
International industry consortium systems Participating company’s system Customer management system Within a participating company Refinement

15 Application of viewpoints
What is defined and NOT defined in RM-ODP Viewpoint Language: Defined Vocabulary to define viewpoint specifications Structuring rules NOT defined Notation: Could be text or any language or technique like FDT, UML, etc. Process or methodology: Could be anything. This is the reason we are working on the guideline

16 What does it look like? Take an example of basic model for Web Services Web Services User Web Services Provider Web Services Trader (Registry like UDDI and ebXML’s) Web Services Trader Common diagram used to explain Lookup Register Web Services User Web Services Provider Use

17 What does it look like? Enterprise Viewpoint Model
Community: Web Services Community- Target domain, Objective Roles/Objects – Participants in the community Web Services Trader Web Services Provider Web Services User Web Services Trader Administrator Web Services Description Behavior Web Services export Web Services import Policy – Constraints and rules Web Services Export Policy Web Services Import Policy etc.

18 What does it look like? Information Viewpoint Model
Information element examples Web Services Type Web Services Description Invariant schema example for Web Services system Web Services Description is uniquely identifiable Dynamic schema example State transition of information elements within Web Services Trader Static schema example Initial state for Web Services Trader

19 What does it look like? Computational Viewpoint Model
Component example Lookup Register Link Proxy Admin Web Services Trader Component Interfaces defined with IDL

20 What does it look like? Engineering Viewpoint Model
Internet/Web Services Infrastructure Distributed Object style communication SOAP/XML Distributed or federated naming Various interceptors security management Intra Enterprise CORBA Infrastructure CORBA Core CORBA Naming CORBA Trading

21 What does it look like? Technology Viewpoint Model Internet
RDB Web Services Trader on Unix Firewall Front End Web App Firewall Internet Stand-By App Server Web Server (Windows) Firewall Intra-net TP Monitor Intra-net WSDL Wrapper Client Service Functions (Legacy App) Web Services Provider Web Services User

22 Systems to be built? If the target is to develop new system:
Five viewpoints applied to entire target system If the target is to integrate existing systems: Five viewpoints applied to each of the existing systems (legacy systems) Try to think of integration at the same granularity level

23 New System Model or Specification System X
Refinements Enterprise View Information View Computational View Engineering View Technology View Divide and conquer with standard five viewpoints System X

24 System Integration System A System B
Think at the same granularity level refinements Enterprise View Information View Computational View Engineering View Technology View System A System B

25 UML Profile for EDOC EDOC UML UML Profile UML Profile for EDOC
Enterprise Distributed Object Computing RM-ODP applied to enterprise systems UML Unified Modeling Language(OMG) UML Profile Customized UML for specific domains UML Profile for EDOC UML customized for enterprise systems based on RM-ODP framework

26 Added value to RM-ODP In addition to “divide and conquer,”
Since viewpoint description will be in UML, More precise description will be possible, A variety of UML tools become available for model based system developments (e.g. use of stereotype etc.), and Depending on functions provided by tools: Skeleton code may be generated from UML models Fast path to system development with tool-integrated IDE One realization of OMG MDA

27 Structure of UML Profile for EDOC
Composed of the following sub-profiles Component Collaboration Architecture (CCA) Entity Profile Event Profile Business Process Profile Relationship Profile Pattern Profile

28 Structure of UML Profile for EDOC
Enterprise viewpoint (CCA, Processes, Entities, Relationships, Events) Part I: Enterprise Collaboration Architecture (ECA) Information viewpoint Computational viewpoint (Entities, Relationships) (CCA, Entities, Events) Engineering viewpoint Part II: Technology Mappings Part I:  Technology Specific Models (Technology abstraction: FCM) Technology viewpoint (UML for J2EE/EJB/JMS, CORBA 3/CCM, COM, SOAP, ebXML) Part I: Pattern can be applied to all viewpoints

29 A Project A joint project experimentally utilizing RM-ODP and UML Profile for EDOC is underway. Dealing with Healthcare area Feedback is expected from participation/experience The guide is also “work in progress” for revision to reflect the feedback
