The MoSSEC International Project kick-off took place 29 October 2014, gathering more than 20 participants from Europe and America. Presentation available here.
The need to move from R&T project into fully governed international standard has been confirmed.
Further conference calls and workshops will be organised to progress towards a recognised MoSSEC international standard and establish implementation path.
This is a contribution in view of developing a future specification named "Modeling and Simulation in a Systems Engineering Context" (MoSSEC).

MoSSEC standard is designed to provide a capability to share Modeling and Simulation information in a collaborative Systems Engineering Context “MoSSEC”. This is to enable full traceability and re-use of modeling and simulation information throughout the product lifecycle and independent of the specific IT applications used across collaborating enterprises. The standard targets to cover a core subset of AP239 systems engineering information content and related information services, that can be readily implemented and deployed to support engineering collaboration.
The MoSSEC project is proposed as an international project, to bring together the works started in Europe by CRESCENDO Consortium to apply AP239/PLCS for this scope, and the similar works in Europe and US motivated by similar goals.
The globalization of aerospace and defence industries drives large volumes of work for modelling and simulation of product performance and behaviour, into geographically distributed teams and into the supply chain. This data is used to justify change decisions and to validate the product throughout development, certification and in-service. The MoSSEC standard enables a proper exchange and sharing of modelling and simulation data with traceability to its systems engineering & PDM context. This enables competitive and robust product development in global teams, where modelling and simulation data is fully traceable to the PDM referential, and enabling quick validation of next design changes, whether in product development or in-service phases.
To illustrate the MoSSEC approach, the figure below provides a schematic view of the most commonly used objects:
Potential participants and contributors to the MoSSEC Project are invited to contact the project leader Adrian Murton.
A number of web-meetings will be held to allow potential participants to confirm their level of interest and to share related work, before face-to-face meetings are held to formalise the organisation principle of the MoSSEC Project.
