  • Project Updates
  • Review other projects:
    Tooling-sponsored Projects
    • PI# 801 Tooling Strategy and Process Revision - have not yet received feedback on the priorities we gave for John Quinn's budgeting. SDWG and incoming chair seeking funded development of publishing CDA IGs, and also seeking the CDA IGs ITS/templates tooling. Andy needs to touch base with SDWG on these. It's a bit confusing with Tooling WG tasked with strategic direction while the Board level is reviewing tactical-level initiatives. How do we address this with John Quinn and Bob? Initial solution to strategic direction did not scale and Board is trying to put out fires. Consistency in the publishing process is desirable, and existing publishing platform has good foundation. Andy has not had a chance to touch base with John on this. Working with SDWG to get the pressure off may alleviate concern at the Board level. Wilfred asks if there is a risk of pushback from the Board if we proceed with the strategic plan. With the no cost IP and other organizational direction changes, all levels have been struggling with envisioning any long term objectives. For example, the direction on conformance testing might have required extensive tactical planning for Tooling, but it has been assigned to external contract. Wilfred notes you have a strategy and then harmonize the tactical plan with whatever comes up from the Board.
  • No other updates, but should review inactive projects to be put on hold, etc.

Next week's meeting is cancelled.
