Methods & Tools SIG held a conference call from 5 pm till 6:10 pm Central European Time.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (represented by Bill BARRETT), AmsterCHEM (represented by Jasper van BATEN), Bryan Research & Engineering (represented by Michael HLAVINKA), Michel PONS (contractor for CO-LaN as Chief Technology Officer)
Review the interface specification document
It appears that the design is now frozen, at least prior to a final review to be conducted by the CO-LaN members (but not yet launched). A few minor adjustments have been made to the descriptions of the Use Cases as well as to the detailed description of each method. Version 1.52 of the document has been created following this conference call and will be reviewed / modified by the Methods &Tools SIG core group till the next conference call scheduled mid-July 2017. Mainly description of various scenarios as to which interfaces and methods they exercize is further needed (there is only one scenario included in the document so far). It is also necessary to address the modifications of the existing prototypes such as COFE as a PME, TERNHYP and WAR as Flowsheet Monitoring Components.
Contact Bill BARRETT (representative of US Environmental Protection Agency, leader of the Methods & Tools Special Interest Group) should you wish to join the Methods & Tools Special Interest Group. Its charter is: “Improve integration, and expand utilization of Computer-Aided Process Engineering (CAPE) applications within the enterprise through identification and resolution of existing cross-cutting issues with the CAPE-OPEN platform, develop mechanisms for use of CAPE within other application domains, and incorporate advances in information technology into the CAPE-OPEN platform.”
