Sparx Systems joined as a Member of the UCA International Users Group (UCAIug) in January, 2009.
The UCAIug, as well as its member groups, Common Information Model User Group (CIMug), Open Smart Grid, and IEC61850, comprises 125 members, who are represented by 29 countries. The user group is dedicated to promoting the integration and interoperability of electric, gas and water utility systems, through the use of international, standards-based technology.
Since the adoption of Enterprise Architect by the IEC TC 57 for the compilation of the Common Information Model (CIM), Sparx Systems works closely with the members of the CIM User Group (CIMug). CIMug’s mission is to manage and to communicate issues concerning the CIM model and to serve as the primary means for developing the CIM model consensus and consistency across the industry.
The current CIM release was constructed using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect. The CIM model comprises two IEC standards 61968 and 61970, which together provide a comprehensive view of an electrical network – available as a single Enterprise Architect UML model. Sparx Systems supports users and maintainers of the CIM model who are associated with the evolution of CIM via model extensions.
