After my initial post about Archimate and UML intent to get closer, just a quick update post on the fact that the “UML Profile for ArchiMate and ArchiMate Meta-model” request for proposal (RFP) have been issued by the Object Management Group at the Long Beach technical committee meeting by the Domain TC and is now available at the URL:
The contact person of this RFP is J.D.Baker from NIST. The effort is lead by Fred A. Cummins, Donald R. Chapin, and Claude Baudoin.
The RFP’s work in progress page, which contains a link to the document and all relevant deadlines is located at this URL (Requires OMG access credentials):
The main controversy related to the RFP and subsequently to the proposals is about the role and positioning of a UML profile wrt the actual Archimate standard.
