Reference Data

  • (to be updated)

Artifacts to be standardized

Recommendations to TC1 of 2

  • Confirm recommendation that all future development be done using PLCSlib

  • Recommend acceptance of proposed changes to PLCS PSM, and corresponding PLCS PSM Reference Data

    • Some issues to be addressed

  • Recommend acceptance of XML Schema in principle, but recommend that it reviewed further – 2 weeks

    • Some issues to be addressed

  • Recommend that the harmonized PSM is frozen be end March 2012. Further harmonization with AP 242 should continue and changes proposed will be considered for incorporation at a later date.

  • Recommend PLCS PSM, XML Schema and PLCS PSM Reference Data are put forward for standardization as OASIS standards

  • Recommended that the PLCSlib templates, PLCS ref. data and exemplar DEX are reviewed and then the template and ref data standardized as OASIS Committee Specifications

Recommendations to TC 2 of 2PLCS Implementers Forum

  • The IF is very welcome but the relationship between the TC and the IF needs to be strengthened

  • Concern that a single proprietary piece of software will be used as the reference

  • There is not a clear relationship between the IF, the TC and TOG.

    • The purpose of the TOG and the TC is partially duplicated by the IF. This should be clarified.

    • Is the IF focused on:

      • Interoperability

      • conformance of PLCS implementations

      • or “the goodness” of DEX

    • Recommend that there is one set of Model Usage Guidance

      • PLCSIF use PLCSlib, with all Model Usage Guidance developed using PLCSlib

      • The governance procedure for the usage guidance should be the same as the rest of PLCSlib

      • Recommend that the usage guide should be an informative annex to the PLCSlib standards

    • Recommend that the PLCSIF publish the exemplar DEXs on PLCSlib

    • The TC needs to clarify what our expectations are of the IF

    • Suggest a (2 day) workshop for the TC to address this issue. The IF should be invited.
