Subject: Call for Comment: proposed Charter for Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC

To OASIS Members:

A draft TC charter has been submitted to establish the Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC.

The comment period shall remain open until 23:59 GMT on 17 May 2022.

We encourage member comments. OASIS maintains a mailing list for the purpose of submitting comments on proposed charters. Any OASIS member may post to this list by sending an email to: oasis-charter-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org. All messages will be publicly archived at: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oasis-charter-discuss/. Members who wish to receive emails must join the group by selecting "join group" on the group home page: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/oasis-charter-discuss/. Employees of organizational members do not require primary representative approval to subscribe to the oasis-charter-discuss e-mail.

This call for comment is also available as a Google Doc. See https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bbkiPklYzTnRJwjm9DywEePi_wgzkh3-9OXcu6gA92c/. Comments may be left on that document. Please be sure your name is included with your comment.

Comments received will be reviewed by the proposers and a log of the comments and their resolution will be posted to the oasis-charter-discuss mailing list before the telephone call with the convener.

A telephone conference to review comments received will be held no later than four days after the comment period closes. The participants will be the Convener, the OASIS Project Administrator, and those proposers who wish to attend. The announcement and call-in information will be noted on the OASIS Charter Discuss Group Calendar.

If you wish to be listed as a co-proposer in the Call for Participation, please contact the convener Kelly Cullinane, KCullinane@Copado.com or Carol Geyer (carol.geyer@oasis-open.org). For representatives of OASIS organizational members, a statement of support from their Primary Representative will be required.

Section 1: TC Charter

(1)(a) TC Name

Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC

(1)(b) Statement of Purpose

Currently, the value stream management (VSM) industry is fractured by having a lack of ubiquitous language and multiple data formats across tools. This TC sets out to create a value stream management standard for interoperability which will allow broader adoption of value stream management. This TC will seek to identify overlaps and understand differences between various value stream implementations and when possible use existing works as a basis of further development.

Value stream interoperability has the potential to provide greater security in the cyber supply chain in the form of forensics, observability, and auditability. This practice can look at events that are relevant to an organization to add additional context to the forensic processes for post incident discovery as well as forward-looking incident prevention. This context can be used for understanding motivation, informing root cause analysis, and providing enhanced context in a development environment.

The purpose of the Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC is to define a value stream management protocol for sharing data across platforms in the software supply chain and systems ecosystem.

The work will focus on:

* Defining key component parts of value stream data
* Enabling interoperability of value streams among users and platforms
* Establishing good practice for value stream data architecture
* Creating open standards for value stream management metrics

Business Benefits

The business benefit of this TC is to bring increased interoperability to existing value stream standards, tools, and best practices.

Potential Stakeholders that would benefit from being represented in this TC include:

* Organizations managing diverse/heterogeneous Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)/DevOps toolchains
* Organizations building SDLC/DevOps tools
* Organizations creating and/or consuming a VSM tool(s) or platform
* Cybersecurity regulators & professionals
* Organizations building VSM software and wanting interoperability between systems
* Software engineering and design companies
* Quality Management roles
* ISO standardized organizations
* Users of value stream mapping and management tools and platforms

(1)(c) Scope

The OASIS Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC work is the development of value stream management data interchange standards, based on the needs identified by the OASIS Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC Members. The Standards Track Work Product efforts will be related to improving existing information representations for codifying, analyzing, and sharing of value stream data.

In addition to Standards Track Work Products, the OASIS Value Stream Management Interoperability (VSMI) TC work products may include supporting documentation, open source tooling, and any other materials deemed necessary to encourage the adoption of the TC's specifications.

(1)(d) Deliverables

The first deliverables for this TC are likely to include:

* Differential analysis with existing works
* Data format interoperability
 Â* Existing standards survey
 Â* Gap analysis
* Definition and attributes of the following, but not limited to, standard key components:
 Â* Identity, Event, Time
* Outline of required common objects or components
* Areas of disparity that should be addressed moving forward (non-overlapping functionality with respect to existing VSM formats)
* Privacy and regulatory concerns for various data formats
* Glossary

(1)(e) IPR Mode


(1)(f) Audience

The target audience for this TC include those listed below. Representatives from all levels and in any role are welcome.

* digital product leadership
* cybersecurity professionals
* public sector security professionals
* quality management professionals
* product value stream organizations

(1)(g) Language

Section 2: Additional Information

(2)(a) Identification of Similar Work

Value Stream Management Consortium:

A member association for enterprises and individuals working with value stream management practices and platforms. The VSMCâs purpose is to advance value stream-centric ways of working in technology teams to lead to higher performing organizations. The TC will complement the work of the VSMC by providing standards and enhancements to benefit the value stream community. VSMC staff will participate in the TC and VSMC organizations are invited to join as representatives of their companies as voting members of the TC.

ISO 22468:2020 - Value stream management (VSM):

Focuses on the physical structure and symbology of a standard map. The TC is focused more centered on the digital value stream.

ISO/IEC 15944-4:2007 - Resource-Event-Agent (REA):

The Resource-Event-Agent (REA) model is an approach to conceptualizing the semantics of economic exchanges such as accounting transactions. The REA model is an ISO standard. Further exploration of this standard will be required to see how it maps to this TC.

(2)(b) First TC Meeting

Sponsored by Copado, via zoom, date TBD.

(2)(c) Ongoing Meeting Schedule

The TC will meet via Zoom twice per month for 60 minutes. One of the proposers listed in the charter will sponsor the Zoom meeting. The meeting cadence will be refined by TC members as needed in accordance with work streams.

(2)(i) FAQ Document

What is Value Stream Management?

Value Stream Management is the practice that observes and controls all activities in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) - from planning, building, validating, to delivering - to determine where work flow and output is constrained. Originating in manufacturing to eliminate variations in quality that pose life-safety risks, it has grown in applicability as software projects become more complex and critical to global economies.

What is Value Stream Mapping?

Value Stream Mapping is a collaborative process for defining the process by which something of value is created and delivered in response to a customer demand. Value Stream Mapping identifies the processes involved in the work as well as metrics on speed, quality, and load at each stage of work as well as for the entire process. Value Stream Mapping is the second key activity in the five steps of Lean.

What data is Value Stream Management concerned with?

* Timing granularity (active time, value-added time)
* Quality (% of work Complete and Accurate)
* Roles involved
* Tools involved
* Artifacts created or touched
* SDLC events
* Work profile (type of work performed)
* Value realization
