About ManTIS

Manufacturing and Industrial Systems Domain Task Force - ManTIS DTF charter

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.
