The TMG is pleased to announce the approval of the project proposal the UMM Base/Foundation Module Version 2.0


The purpose of the project is to update the current UN/CEFACT Modeling Methodology (UMM) base module and foundation module. When the work on the first versions of these modules started in December 2004 most UML tool vendors supported UML 1.4, but not UML 2. Due to this fact, it was decided to build the UMM base and foundation module on top of UML 1.4. Today, UML tool vendors have made progress towards UML2, which is the most common supported version, whereas UML 1.4 support is decreasing. Accordingly, the UMM base and foundation module will be adopted to UML 2. In other words, the purpose of this project is to develop a UML2 profile for the UMM base module and another one for the foundation module.

Please find full text of the project proposal at the following link UMM - Project Proposal. The project is conducted within UN/CEFACT's Techniques & Methodologies Group (TMG) at the working group BPWG. The project leader is [~christian.huemer].
