OMG Issues RFP for Pedigree and Provenance Model and Notation (PPMN) RFP
February 01, 2021
The Object Management Group (OMG) issued a RFP for the Pedigree and Provenance Model and Notation (PPMN) RFP specification.
The purpose of the specification is to support tracking with pedigree and provenance of physical and abstract items. According to the group, PPMN will become part of the BPM+ set of standards, providing a method for defining the P&P of models and their elements.
At the moment, BPM+ includes the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN); Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN); and Decision Model and Notation (DMN). BPMN is known as ISO 19510.
P&P is used in a number of applications. For example, in the healthcare industry, it ensures the calibration of equipment and training of the staff is included with patient data. Further in military applications, it can be applied to how intelligence was gathered and how information can be shared
PPMN is expected to standardize how disparate organizations and industries express their P&P.
The organization is looking to receive proposals for PPMN specification that provides a solution to the problem of exchanging and displaying lineage, ownership, and custody of information.
