As presented in this document, Knowledge is naturally organized into resources, also called knowledge resources.
To provide the required Resource Entitlement, Modeling, Management, and Sharing (REMMS),
in network and distributed environments, knowledge tools require an adequate high
performance, scalability, flexibility, modularity, security environment and framework
with clear and solid separation of concerns.
While knowledge tool requirements and constraints are presented in more details in other sections of this document,
this sections introduces a knowledge tool framework design.
The knowledge tool framework introduced here is designed for REMMS (Resource Entitlement, Modeling, Management,
As visual modeling through interactive graphical user interfaces is a natural and efficient approach to management,
as well as to entitlement and sharing (e.g. MDA), and to simplify framework presentation nomenclature,
special focus is put on resource modeling.
The framework objectives include the integration of existing (e.g. OMG, UML, BPMN) and future modeling dialects
into an integrated generalized knowledge entitlement, modeling, management, and sharing extensible ecosystem,
resolving what some have called the “meta-muddle madness”, across enterprises, vendors, and platforms,
finally supporting multi-organization collaboration, project management, and executable governance
(e.g. crisis and emergency response, medical patient virtual profiles, industrial collaboration application portals).
Diagram and Legend
The framework introduction includes a diagram model with a support legend.
The two images are each available as html pages accessible from this page's menu, for easy access.
The menu also provides access to a PDF version of the two pages, side-by-side, for easy reference.
This section also includes a list and brief description of some of the innovative frameworks' main
As is typical throughout the document/site, the logic flow follows the order of the titles in the menus and we
recommend, at least initially, following them in sequence.
