Manufacturing and Industrial Systems Domain Task Force - ManTIS DTF

ManTIS is OMG's Manufacturing Technology and Industrial Systems Domain Task Force (ManTIS DTF). The mission of ManTIS is to foster the emergence of cost effective, timely, commercially available and interoperable software components for the Manufacturing and Industrial Systems domain through the development of standard interfaces using the OMG process. ManTIS will issue specifications for Manufacturing, Industrial Processes and Control Systems.
Objectives of ManTIS are:

  • To Recommend technology specifications based on OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA) that enable interoperability, reusability and modularity.
  • To Encourage development of standard interfaces that encapsulate legacy systems, enabling their integration and easing migration to new technologies.
  • To Encourage adoption of ManTIS-related OMG specifications by other standardization organizations
  • To Establish a working relationship with other Task Forces in both Platform and Domain Technology Committees of the OMG to provide mutual support and leverage for each other's specifications.
  • To Establish and maintain active liaison relationships with appropriate external organizations in support of the preceding goals.

This WIKI will capture the work of ManTIS and will help to find the relevant documentation. If you would like to join the ManTIS group or participate in the ongoing discussion feel free to contact the chairs mentioned below.
Current hot topics of ManTIS include the Integration of PLM and MBSE and standardization work in the context of the Industrial Internet and Industrie 4.0.

Hot Topics

ManTIS is currently working on theses topics:

PLM MBSE Integration

ManTIS is workig together with OMG's SE DSIG on the integration of PLM and MBSE. It therefor wants to bring all relevant stakeholders together: PLM and MBSE vendors as well as industry users and academia. The working group PLM4MBSE of the German chapter of INCOSE (GfSE e.V.) published a Paper with 10 thesis about MBSE and PLM which can be found here.

MBSE and IIOT in Manufacturing Information Day

We're planning to hold a “MBSE and IIOT in Manufacturing Information Day” at the upcoming OMG TC Meeting in Brussels, June 5-9 2017.

This Information Day is a follow-up of the Information Day held at the Berlin OMG TC Meeting 2015. More information on this event can be found here:
