Outcome: Review of the Errata & Clarifications document on Parameter Common Interface specification (30 mn).

On Flowsheet Monitoring, further modifications made to the document in order to get away completely from Flowsheet validation status.

The Flowsheet Monitoring interface specification document was moved to version 1.25 and made available on the repository of the CAPE-OPEN IDL project.
