Status Report
I quickly created a draft for our status report.  See below.  This is a
starting point for discussion and we should change it appropriately.  I have
provided comments and annotation in [brackets].

I.  Charter
	Identify the catalog of standard ebXML Core Processes.

	Mentor the ebXML Core Components Industry Domain Teams with the
application of the UN/CEFACT Unified Modeling Methodology (UMM) and the
ebXML Business Process Metamodel. Identify any new processes and patterns.

	Create the ebXML Business Methodology Guidelines that provides the
prescriptive application of the UN/CEFACT Unified Modeling Methodology (UMM)
and the ebXML Business Process Metamodel.

II. Active Participants
Thanks to the following people for contributing to the Core Process team:
   Martin Bryan, Bob Haugen, Anne Hendry, Brian Hayes, Stephan de Jong, Paul
Levine, Sue Probert, Nita Sharma, Lisa Shreve, Edwin Young, Dave Welsh.

Apologies to any names left off

III. List of Deliverables
+ Catalog of Core Processes
+ Business Process Methodology Guidelines
+ Business Process Specification Template
+ Example Business Process Specifications

IV. Mentoring
A Mentor is provides help and guidance with the ebXML Business Process
Methodology to the Industry Domain Teams.  A Mentor does not do the actual

The Industry Domain Team counter-part to a Mentor is a Liaison. The liaisons
come from the Core Components Industry Domain teams.  They are to learn the
ebXML Business Process Methodology and help their teams with the
methodology.  They are the counter-parts to the mentors from the Core
Process team.  The liaisons will take a more active role in the industry
domain teams while the mentors are a support role.
+ Progress to date
   - Bob Haugen,  with Jim Clark, mentored Sig Handelman in the development
of the ebXML Metamodel Example (Manufacturing: Materials Management).
   -  Martin Bryan is the Context Mentor.

+ Next Steps
  - Assign Mentors to the other Industry Domain Teams (Finance, Insurance,
Retail, Customs)
  - Identify Liaisons from the other Industry Domain Teams.  Liaisons are
members of the Industry Domain teams that work with the Core Process team.

V. Catalog of Core Processes
This the catalog of standard ebXML core processes. The catalog covers
domestic and international business processes. It also provides a mapping to
standards such as Rosettanet PIPs, X12, and EDIFACT. 

+ Team: Nita Sharam (Lead), Edwin Young, David Welsh
+ Progress to date
   - Announced availability of work-in-progress document
   - Requesting contributions and feedback
+ Next Steps
   - ??? Take into account other standards efforts (e.g. UN/CEFACT BPAWG)
   - ebXML community needs to contribute

VI. Methodology Guidelines
The ebXML Business Process Methodology Guidelines is a specialization of the
UN/CEFACT Unified Modeling Methodology (UMM) [TMWG N090]. By providing a
more prescriptive approach, application of the Guidelines will result in
more predictive deliverables. The Guidelines are provide further delineation
of steps and procedures reflecting the practical experience of people who
have applied the UMM and other similar methodologies to e-business.

+ Team: Brian Hayes (Editor), Jim Clark, Bob Haugen
+ Progress to date

+ Next Steps

VII. Specification Template
The ebXML Business Process Specification Template is a boilerplate for
creating the specifications for business processes. The ebXML Business
Process Methodology Guidelines describes how to gather and create the
content for each section in the specification.

+ Team: Brian Hayes, Anne Hendry, Pat Toufar
+ Progress to date
  - Version 0.1, work-in-progress available on website
  - Started next version
+ Next Steps
  - Update to reflect latest metamodel
  - Being developed in conjunction with the Example Specification

VIII. Example Specifications

+ Team: Jim Clark (Lead), Brian Hayes
+ Progress to date
  - "Procurement Management: Procurement" business process specification in
  - Effort delayed due to computer crash
+ Next Steps
   - Complete specification
   - Identify and start work on a second specification
