The Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model

  title={The Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model},
  author={A. Tolk and James Muguira},
Interoperability of systems is not a cookie-cutter-function. There are various levels of interoperability between two systems ranging from no interoperability to full interoperability. In the technical domain, various models for levels of interoperability already exist and are used successfully to determine the degree of interoperability between information technology systems. However, such models are not yet established in the domain of conceptual modeling. This paper introduces a general… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Ontology Driven Interoperability - M&S Applications
This tutorial will start by presenting the six levels of the LCIM and showing where current interoperability solutions such as DIS and HLA fit and to what degree they are lacking, and how the different aspects can grow together to become a framework for interoperable solutions covering aspects of all six layers.
A framework for interoperability assessments in Systems of Systems and Families of Systems
A precise and easy to use method for assessing a system's interoperability with other systems at early stages of system development will allow systems engineers and associated professionals to make informed decisions for better interoperability.
A Conceptual Framework for Pragmatic Interoperability
A conceptual framework is proposed that aims to contribute to the unification of the concept of pragmatic interoperability and common elements necessary for its realization and was applied in three different scenarios to demonstrate its applicability and validate the unified concept.
Interoperability in the e-Government Context
Some of the challenges associated with achieving interoperability in e-government systems are explained and some guidance on how to address interoperability requirements are presented, with the goal of making both policy makers and system developers aware of the depth and breadth of these challenges.
Measuring and Evaluating Interoperability for Complex C 2 Information Management System-of-Systems
This paper identifies and discusses different measures for interoperability, presents a method for measuring them using Petri nets, and categorizes them to define different operational levels of Interoperability for C2 information management systems.
Consideration of interoperability in the deployment of systems engineering processes
An approach for deploying SE processes within a company taking into consideration the interoperability of the entities involved in these processes is presented, and an interoperability maturity model has been developed and is introduced in this paper.
Using the levels of conceptual interoperability model and model-based data engineering to develop a modular interoperability framework
The principles of Model-based Data Engineering (MBDE) are integrated within the framework to support the interactions between systems across the layers of the LCIM.
Implied ontological representation within the levels of conceptual interoperability model
The Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model LCIM has been developed to provide both a metric of the degree of conceptual representation that exists between interoperating systems and also as a
A reliability-based measurement of interoperability for systems of systems
A flexible, intuitive measure of interoperability of system pairs within a potential architecture performing a set of resource exchanges is presented to provide decision makers with information about an architecture and allow them to compare existing and potential systems of systems during the early phases of acquisition.


Composable Mission Spaces and M&S Repositories - Applicability of Open Standards
It will be argued, that aligning these standards within DoD is possible, and this will help to terminate the shortcomings of interface driven solutions and to integrate components delivering M&S functionality into real world systems, in particular for Command and Control.
Model independent assertions for integration of heterogeneous schemas
This paper investigates theassertion-based approach, in which the DBA's action is limited to pointing out corresponding elements in the schemas and to defining the nature of the correspondence in between, which is capable of ensuring better integration by taking into account additional semantic information.
Automating the transformation of XML documents
This paper develops an integrated solution that automates as much as possible all steps of the document transformation process and introduces an algorithm that can satisfactorily discover acceptable transformations.
Developing Extensible Battle Management Language to Enable Coalition Interoperability
The XBML prototype is described and its extensibility to coalition operations is evaluated and many of the same problems that occur in joint “understanding” of Operations Orders between simulations and C2 systems also occur in coalition operations.
Department of Defense Net-Centric Data Strategy
The attached DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy provides a key enabler of the Department of Defense's Transformation by establishing the foundation for managing the Department's data in a net-centric environment.
Understanding Web Services: XML, WSDL, SOAP, and UDDI
This chapter introduces the Basics of Web Services, and discusses UDDI Support for SOAP, Complex Business Relationships, and Unicode, and an Alternative Approach: ebXML.
Object-Oriented Modeling and Design
This book discusses Object Modeling as a Design Technique, Object Diagram Compiler, and the Future of Object-Oriented Technology.
Developing Battle Management Language into a Web Service
According to the invention, a metallic surface susceptible to abrasion by rock-like material is protected by stud welding studs of ab rasion resistant metallic material to the metallic surface in closely spaced relationship to cause the majority of the rock- like material to contact the abrading resistant studs instead of the Metallic surface.
