MDA in the Federal Government

In 2001, the federal government introduced its e-Government initiative to improved and streamline government services. A major portion is focused on IT, as described by the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA). Starting in FY2003 the OMB announced that funding would be given only to projects that explicitly conform to the FEA. This presentation shows how one project used MDA to meet those requirements.

The project team used MDA to codify standards and constraints of the FEA into their frameworks and processes using UML profiles. We will discuss the project”s requirements, framework, UML profiles and progress to date.
