Value Delivery Modeling Language (VDML)

Brought to my attention again.   Should this be the place to start for any project that claims to generate value?  Even doing a simplified model can act as a prototype from which to build from.  To test prototypes with people and other systems.  We used other BPM methods, but these were not as focused as was necessary.  Has anyone done this?  Point me to some examples.  Reconsidering.

Has been used with Watson and other AI/Expert systems for Smart Service Systems

Value Delivery Modelling Language
Value Delivery Modeling Language (VDML) is a standard modeling language for analysis and design of the operation of an enterprise with particular focus on the creation and exchange of value.

In 2009, the Object Management Group (OMG) launched a Request for Proposal (RfP) to develop a standard for value modeling. The goal of this RfP is to integrate the different existing value models and give a complete overview of the business logic of an organisation. To reach this goal, the standard has to satisfy nine requirements .... "

Hello Franz, great to see your blog post. As VDMbee we are building our Value Management Platform based on the VDML specification. Are are also activily involved in the OMG in the surrounding areas of VDML.
Right now working on a major update of VMP. We are adding the following "value discovery" designers:
- Dashboard to present Value impact with unique views for all individual stakeholders
- Strategy Map (based on Kaplan Norton)
- Value Stream Map (based on VDML and BA Guild priciples)
- Capability Library (based on VDML)
- Capability Map (based on VDML)
- BA Guild reference model import
- Process Designer (BPMN2.0)
- Case Designer (CMMN1.1)

Here a link: https://vdmbee.com/home-new/vdmbee-value-management-platform/

We have also enhanced our User eXperience to support better the notion of the Discovery milestones, Protoype and Adopt phases in making the Business Model plan.

We are currently competing in response to an RFP from the Object Management Group for a specification to support business architecture modeling. Our proposal is to show how VDML supports the requirement with some extensions--some already implemented by VDMbee. In support of that proposal, I have posted a series of blogs on Key Features of VDML that provide powerful capabilities for business architecture and business design. See https://fredacummins.blogspot.com/2018/09/vdml-for-business-architects-part-1-of.html .
