The Thermo SIG met from 10:30 am till 12:30 pm (Central European Time) on March 14, 2017.

Agenda: develop specifications of interfaces (description of methods) for additional interfaces (reactive equilibrium and compound slates)

Participants: Sergej BLAGOV (BASF), Jasper van BATEN (AmsterCHEM), Mark STIJNMAN (Shell Global Solutions), Bjørn MARIBO-MOGENSEN (Hafnium Labs), Michel PONS

Outcome: Thermo SIG progressed its description of the list of Compound Slates and of the interactions between software objects on this list. The naming of each Compound Slate has been confirmed as a design decision. An additional Use Case has been added to describe the flow of events when a Unit Operation wants to get access to the list of Compound Slates. It was recognized that implementation of interfaces introduced for dealing with reactions may not be simultaneously carried out by the different parties involved in the development of PMEs, Unit Operations and Property Packages. So a number of scenarii are possible and need to be addressed. It appeared necessary to stress out that the list of compounds accessible through the ICapeThermoCompounds interface is itself a Compound Slate and is at minimum the Compound Slate considered.

Next conference call is scheduled for March 21, 2017 from 10:30 am till 12:30 (Central European Time
