This session will present the RFP requirements and the expectations for growth and evolution of OMG SysML. Work on the SysML specification began in earnest at the OMG meeting at Disneyland in December of 2001. The official formal publication of SysML 1.0 came in September 2007. Revisions have occurred over the time since then, primarily addressing inconsistencies and ambiguities. Now the OMG has released two RFPs to grow the use of SysML within the context of Model-based Systems Engineering as defined by the INCOSE MBSE Working Group.
