3rd AMASS General Meeting
The AMASS consortium gathered together in Seville on March 29th, 30th, and 31st for the 3rd General Meeting of the project. The meeting was hosted by Schneider Electric. Forty-three people attended the meeting. They outlined the work performed during the second semester of the project, presented the ongoing work, and discussed the work in the next six months. Both technical and non-technical aspects were covered.
The main decisions on technical aspects include the aspects that will be finally covered in the case studies for the first prototype of the AMASS Tool Platform (aka core prototype), the development of a common vision for the second prototype for architecture-driven assurance, multi-concern assurance, seamless interoperability, and assurance reuse , and the specification of a plan to resume the joint work of the conceptual and implementation teams.
Regarding the non-technical aspects, the AMASS consortium agreed to review, and update if necessary, its exploitations plans before summer, and will continue working on the preparation of the workshop with the External Advisory Board and on building its open-source platform and community in the Eclipse ecosystem. Dissemination opportunities at several events, including SAFECOMP and its workshops, were reminded to the attendees.
Among the deliverables that will materialise the meeting outcomes, the design deliverables will specify the solutions for architecture-driven assurance, multi-concern assurance, seamless interoperability, and assurance reuse that will be implemented in the second prototype. The results from the application of the core prototype in the case studies will be published by the end of April 2017, and the evaluation framework to benchmark the next prototypes by September 2017.
