April 25, 2013 in News

An approach to applying Essence to systems engineering was discussed at the 4th INCOSE Russian chapter systems engineering challenges workshop that took place on April 11 – April 14, 2013

The roadmap of the Essence adaptation to the systems engineering had been agreed as follows (the roadmap is already published in Russian in the first paragraph of the workshop minutes:
1st of August 2013 – define model and architecture ontological status in the Essence
1st of September 2013 – publish first draft of the Essence kernel extension for Systems Engineering.
1st of December 2013 – map Essence Systems Engineering kernel elements to ISO 15926.
End of December 2013 – publish first version of the “Essence systems engineering kernel elements (mapped to the ISO 15926)”.

SEMAT Scales Up

April 16, 2013 in News

SEMAT is getting closer to reach its first milestone – a standard kernel and language. SEMAT has also started the work on establishing the general theory of software engineering.

Good history is encouraging, but we can’t live on our history. Now we need to scale up and we need experienced management to bring us to a higher level. Professor June Sung Park has gracefully agreed to be the new chairman of the SEMAT Executive Committee.

June is a professor in software engineering at KAIST, a leading university in Korea. Prior to that June was the CTO of Samsung SDS for more than a decade. Before joining Samsung June was a professor at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. June has been very interested in SEMAT from its beginning. He represented Samsung as a corporate signatory when he was with Samsung, and now he represents KAIST as an academic signatory. Currently June is in the process of setting up a Korean chapter of SEMAT.

We invite you to join us to welcome June as the new executive chairman of SEMAT. Under the leadership of June, with his abundant experience in both industry and academia, SEMAT will be advanced to a new chapter in software engineering history.
