Alignment Conference Minutes
Mary Kay Blantz
The group agreed that the primary purpose of this meeting
was to put a process in place that would allow the Business Process Project
Team and Core Components Project Team to continue working independent of one
another in areas where team tasks do not overlap but that a plan be drafted
to work together in areas where there is convergence. Following discussion,
it was agreed that creating Usable Examples describing scenarios for BP/CC
ebXML model coordination was the most productive way to proceed forward and
should be the focus of this group. Brian's Example document was held up to
be a clean and 'easy to follow' example for presenting how CC context fits
into the BP Metamodel. The Alignment Group identifed three specific example
areas where a joint effort between designated CC and BP Team members should
occur. The examples and designated alignment group members for this
task are identified below. They are:
The Auto Example- Bill, Bob, Mark Kay and Lisa
Action: Mary Kay and Lisa will
send Bob a 'Model' for his review.
The Travel and Leisure Example- Karsten, Scott and
The International Transport Example- Sue and perhaps Doug
Towser or a BP person to be identified by Sue.
A fourth example under consideration is Payments.
Action: Marcia will try to find a payment
expert to work with a designated CC context member in this
The Alignment Group felt it was important that the BP Team and CC Team
be informed that there is no real conflict between these two groups and that
we expect to work together to create BP Methodology and a Model that
reflects the efforts of both teams.
The agenda for the July 14th Conference call is as
>Review Brian's example
>Determine if the CC Context Report by Brian and
the 3 Example Documents should/could be merged into one document to be
presented to the ebXML members in August.
>Identify the core members of each example group and
any additional persons to begin work on the examples.
> Agree on the expected outcome of this group's efforts
for the August meeting.
For discussion, outcomes might include the Metamodel,
three Usable Examples and 1 Model Demonstration incorporating a CC submodel
with the BP Metamodel demonstrating how CC context can be derived from the
