Expected next major release date
Revision Task Force. December 2006

Technical area(s) which it addresses
Adaptive Real-Time
Modelling and Components

Short description of the standard
UML extensions for the description and analysis of Quality of Service properties in software architectures and specially the safety analysis and the application of fault tolerance solutions.

Technical gains
This standard proposes UML extensions for the description of extra-functional properties associates to services in general. UML do no includes notations to model quality properties of software in general, these properties have been integrated traditionally as informal natural language notes. The extensions propose solutions for the description of the QoS and FT concepts and integrates the notation with the general specification of UML 2. It includes some solutions for the description of Risk assessment analysis and for the description of fault tolerant based software solutions.
