STEP's System Engineering Project
AP233 is a STEP-based data exchange standard targeted to support the needs of the systems engineering community, consistent with emerging standards in CAD, structural, electrical, engineering analysis and support domains. The AP233 Project is collaborating with the OMG SE DSIG team that is developing systems engineering extensions to Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) and INCOSE (International Council on Systems Engineering), a systems engineering professional society.
The EIA G-47 Committee initiated an effort to merge the INCOSE System Engineering Capability Assessment Model (SECAM) and the EPIC SE-CMM in 1996. EIA Interim Standard (IS) 731, Version 1.0 was released on January 20, 1998. It contained two parts: Part 1 was the Systems Engineering Capability Model (SECM) and Part 2 was the SECM Appraisal Method. The purpose of this standard is to support the development and improvement of system engineering. Attention to this standard has become overcome by events (OBE) because of the Integrated Capability Maturity Model (CMMI) initiative, being driven by the U.S. DoD, and being worked by the NDIA by representatives of the EIA and the SEI.
