An Enterprise Architecture Approach to Modeling Complex Systems
Tuesday, June 12, 9:45 am – 10:45 am
Daryl Shing, Mgr., Enterprise Architecture, ERCOT
Tim Bohn, Reg. Practice Lead – Systems & Software Process, IBM Rational software
This session outline how ERCOT is using the Model-Driven System Development (MDSD) approach to redesign the Texas Power Market, a large system of interconnected systems. ERCOT calls this model SoSA (System of Systems Architecture).
The presentation covers why ERCOT selected SoSA, how it helps the company address system architecture and cross-system integration concerns, the challenges with building large enterprise models, what companies do once they have an enterprise SoSA model, and how this approach is used to engage the organization in the design process by making models more visual.
