Operating Model Reverse Engineering (OMRE)

Package Documentation
Current Version
June 29, 2020


The main purpose of the OMRE
  • Audit trail of the all Operating Model objects
  • Change management of the Operating Model
  • Additional functionality that will bring more flexibility in the management of the Operating Model


Possible use case scenarios

  • Explore Operating Model objects as regular assets and relations without Admin role
  • View various diagrams to help understand the model with all asset types and (complex) relation types between them (it will help during the design of the custom asset model)
  • Find all dependencies between objects to assess the impact of the changes, e.g.: which Operating Model objects will be impacted in case of attribute type removing
  • Check which asset types are using particular attribute type before changing its description or number of possible values
  • See who and when created/changed the Operating model object
  • See how many objects have been created/updated/deleted since your last OMRE export
  • Propose changes to the existing Operating Model objects (e.g. description of the attribute type) review, approve and implement them through the workflow
  • Find which users or user groups are assigned to a given role
  • Find some gaps and mistakes in the Operating Model – unused objects, empty domains, overlapping scopes etc.
  • Check how existing asset types are governed by showing all workflows which are assigned to the particular asset type

I am getting this error when trying to run the worflow from .
“The workflow could not be started. No enabled users were found for role ‘Business Steward’,role ‘Subject Matter Expert’.”

I have users assigned to this and both of them are also Community Managers for “Operating Model”.

@Peter.Vennel Which workflow are you trying to start? If it’s about “OMRE – Description Update” then you’re right, you have to have somebody assigned on this resource with ‘Business Steward’ and ‘Subject Matter Expert’ roles.

Workflow runs almost 1/2 hour and then fails with error “java.util.NoSuchElementException: Cannot access first() element from an empty List” . Is this known issue?
