ASSESS - NAFEMS Initiative

There is a rapidly growing need for a better understanding of model characteristics related to Engineering Simulation Models. This need is coupled with the significantly expanding role of simulation in performing Model-Based Engineering (MBE). Engineering Simulation metadata (ES Metadata) structures are currently being proposed by multiple initiatives, each of which takes a different approach to defining a pragmatic metadata structure based on its own perspective and goals.

Unified Model Characteristics for Engineering Simulation (UMC4ES) is an attempt to define a comprehensive set of model characteristics (metadata) of interest for the complete range of Engineering Simulation Models that can be used across all applications. The objective of UMC4ES is to provide a comprehensive definition of the metadata required to describe the characteristics of all types of Engineering Simulation Models. It is intended for this characterization to describe and link the characteristics of the model and its intended use over its entire lifecycle for all relevant stakeholders to support processes, activities, business purposes, and higher-level models.

Unified Model Characteristics for Engineering Simulation is not an implementation technique or a proposed standard (yet).
