The Methods&Tools Special Interest Group has developed an Errata and Clarifications document for the Utilities Common Interface specification document (the full interface specification is available here) belonging to version 1.0 of the CAPE-OPEN standard.

The main topics covered by the Errata & Clarifications document are the lifecycle of a CAPE-OPEN Process Modelling Component (PMC), when to make a PMC aware of the SimulationContext interface on the Process Modelling Environment, how to make the Edit method more responsive. The document is not considered final at this stage, has not been publicly released, remains an internal CO-LaN document.

CO-LaN members have been requested to review the document and to supply their comments till September 2, 2016.

This review will then be analyzed by the Methods & Tools SIG who will modify the Errata and Clarifications document as necessary, providing responses to reviewers, before proposing the document for public release to CO-LaN Management Board.
