The Steering Board of ARTEMIS Industry Association decided to issue an ARTEMIS label for those Tool Platforms that fulfill a set of documented and approved label criteria.
What are Tool Platforms?
Tool Platforms are an instrument to support sustainability and productivity by sharing research results among projects targeting related objectives, thus contributing to the overall objective of promotion of cross-fertilization and reuse of technology results.
All relevant background information on the ARTEMIS Tool Platforms including the complete strategy and policy on Tool Platforms is described in the document: ARTEMIS-IA Tool Platforms Strategy & Implementation.
Value of the Tool Platforms approach
The ARTEMIS tool platforms approach has been crafted to provide the best trade-off between key conflicting objectives:
> The need to support at best market requirements for a specific segment (one size does not fill all), while limiting tool platform proliferation
> The need for integration between solutions in order to support cross-segment integration
> The high cost of such integration
> The need to standardise to avoid the redundant cost of multiple plug-ins
> The need for innovation not to be inhibited by too wide or to early standards
> The need to preserve competition in key segment
> The need to provide an integrated set of on-line services to the end-user
> The need to evolve a tool platform after its initial deployment
How can we apply for a label?
Organisations or projects can apply for the label by sending a document describing their Tool Platform proposal to the Office ARTEMIS Industry Association. This document should describe how the Tool Platform fulfills the criteria listed in the Tool Platforms label criteria document.
EICOSE CRTP is an ARTEMIS Tool Platform in which a set of system engineering assets ( Technology Bricks or Building Blocks ) for safety critical systems engineering (CSE) stored and managed under configuration. (Compliant with shared IOS and Deployment/Production platforms generation)
The CRTP was initialized by CESAR, might be extended by MBAT and CRYSTAL and will be managed by EICOSE.
CESAR has adopted the “Tool Platform” (RTP) concept in different perspectives: CESAR RTP is not only a set of commonly agreed principles and technology building blocks, but also concrete implementations as actual tool chains (RTP V1.0, V2.0, V3.0) since such implementations are needed to carry out an assessment of these principles and building blocks.
Their view on the way forward is that all key stakeholders should be involved in:
1.A long term cooperation scheme on the principles (in particular on the interoperability principles and standards) and on the incubation and assessment of technology building blocks of Tool Platforms.
2.Adoption of these principles, integration of the building blocks, and large scale industrial assessment of actual implementations representative of future commercial products.
The long term cooperation scheme is sketched in the diagram below as “Cooperation RTP”.
Central to this cooperation is a repository of technology building blocks, principles and standards to build actual tool chains. This “Cooperation RTP” is common to all application domains, there should be only one “cooperation RTP” in the Artemis scope, to which multiple cooperative research projects may contribute.
Actual implementation of tool chains, based on the common assets (Technical Items) has been initiated in the framework of CESAR. Different tool chains, targeting the needs of different industrial domains, should be elaborated in the framework of ARTEMIS.
Assessment of the Tool Platform and decision procedure
A committee consisting of two Steering Board members and two members of the Office ARTEMIS Industry Association will check the application documents. This committee prepares an advice to the Steering Board whether indeed the candidate Tool Platform should be awarded with the label. The decision by the Steering Board is put on the agenda of the next Steering Board meeting. The label will be given for three years; then a reassessment check will be done by ARTEMIS Industry Association whether the label will be continued or not. Criteria for this have been developed and are described in the document.
