The present document is the result of the Multi-SDO JWG on Model Alignment which 3GPP TSG SA WG5 (SA5) has
developed jointly with TMF and NGMN, and which does not fully follow the 3GPP templates and drafting rules.
Therefore 3GPP SA5 has desired to keep the present document as similar as possible to the original in ([S5eMA20139 Model Repertoire 5.3]), for
comparison with the corresponding TMF version.
Thus 3GPP SA5 has done only the strictly necessary changes from the 3GPP drafting rules perspective in order to
publish the present document as a 3GPP Technical Report. One of these type of changes is due to the fact that it is not
allowed to use "shall" in an informative TR. However, in order to preserve the original intention of "must" and "shall"
in the original JWG document and distinguish it from other places where "should" has been used (in case it is decided in
the future to transform the TR into a TS), the use of "shall" is marked in italics font as "shall".
The JWG on Model Alignment work has chosen UML to capture behaviour of systems/entities under management.
UML provides a rich set of concepts, notations and model elements to model distributive systems. Usage of all UML
notations and model elements is not necessary for the purpose of JWG Model Alignment work. This paper documents
the necessary and sufficient set of UML notations and model elements, including the ones built by the UML extension
mechanism <<stereotype>>, for use by JWG Model Alignment work. Collectively, this set of notations and model
elements is called the FMC (developed by the Converged Management of Fixed/Mobile Networks project) Model
JWG Model Alignment specifications shall employ the UML notation and model elements of this repertoire. In the
course of the JWG Model Alignment work, JWG Model Alignment group may modify (add, delete, modify) UML
notation and model elements of this repertoire when necessary.
