Status of Errata and Clarifications document on Utilities Common Interface specification has been examined. There is a need for more input by CO-LaN members on the document before the Methods & Tools SIG will be able to propose the document for public release to the Management Board.
Reporting: the Methods & Tools SIG has further progressed the proposal for a Common Interface specification dedicated to reporting of PMCs. Hopefully the document developed by the Methods & Tools SIG core group will be soon released to the entire Methods & Tools SIG for review. Input from the UNIT SIG has specifically been requested.
COBIA Persistence: the document describing the strategy applied for persistence in COBIA has been updated. Further work is needed at the Methods & Tools core group level before, there also, to implicate the other members of the Methods & Tools SIG.
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.”
