A proposal has been made to establish the Capella Industry Consortium (IC) at PolarSys.
The vision of the Capella IC is to host the Capella Ecosystem stakeholders in a vendor neutral way, organized by an open governance model. It will allow them to better collaborate, share investment and best practices, and leverage Open Innovation to co-develop new MBSE capabilities.
The main goal of the consortium is to support the PolarSys Capella solution, in association with the field-proven Arcadia methodology, to become the leading Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) solution. Targeted for industrial users, Capella provides a mature, full-featured, sustainable solution which can be widely distributed as an open source alternative to existing proprietary modeling tools.
The official announcement of the Capella IC will take place on June 20th as part of Capella Day, the first event dedicated to the Capella community, held in conjunction with EclipseCon France 2017. You are invited to review the draft Charter and provide comments on the PolarSys mailing list at email@example.com.
