The document explaining the changes induced to the CAPE-OPEN standards by COBIA has been reworked, taking into account the comments made by Michel PONS throughout the text. A new version has been created, to be considered version 4 of the document.It appears necessary for the Methods & Tools SIG to reach out to the Thermo SIG and to the Unit SIG for input and decisions.
