Scope of COBIA Phase III.


The participants worked at better summarizing the results of COBIA Phase II and the objectives given to COBIA Phase III. Next the work to be done within Phase III was split into two workpackages, each with different steps, so that it will be easier to schedule the work to be done over a longer period of time. Then, after taking into consideration the choices of language bindings made within the evaluation of the CAPE-OPEN 2020 Annual Meeting, a prioritization was made that also considers the relationship between solutions applicable to each language binding.
