View TRAK:TRAK IPR

Overview

TRAK was originally based on work commissioned by London Underground Limited (LUL) in 2009. It was first made public at an INCOSE Railway Interest Group (RIG) workshop in July 2009.

Since LUL used Sparx Systems’ Enterprise Architect locally a plugin was created to allow TRAK views to be created in Enterprise Architect. This in turn required a UML profile for TRAK to be developed.

The UK Department for Transport (DfT) have now adopted or sponsored TRAK.
