  • Motion to approve the Minutes (Jane/Tony)
  • Vote: (3-0-1)
  • Vice-chair: Discussion has been held to find a replacement for Charlie Mead. We are waiting for an official appointment by John Quinn.
  • Update from Bo
    • Bo presented the EA model generated from the spreadsheet "tool" Ron and Jane have been developing
    • The only change is the addition of parties in the Actor icon.
    • Organized the classes into packages based on the meta-model.
    • Will relate parties between steps
    • non-descript roles like Governor should not be reused
    • Roles that are more fully expressed may be re-used
    • There are places where the role type and role name are generic.
    • We should not name the classes the same as the types
    • The problem space analyst appears twice
      • Could not be reused because the role is being fulfilled by a different party
  • Update from Jane and Ron
    • Jane, Ron,and Bo discussed the spreadsheet.
    • Discussion turned to questions about the meta-model.
      • We need to differentiate between external facing products, and the tools used internally.
      • We do differentiate between published, and undercover - not published as a product. Should we type them at governance, methodology, management - this would migrate upwards.
      • The advantage would be the nature of the artifact.
      • Would apply to a proliferation of roles.
      • Ron: Proliferation would cause panic, unless we only show types.
      • Bo: Since role and behaviour are sub-typed by governance, methodology and Management, can we derive the the artifact from the behavior?
      • Jane: I think that is true.
      • Ron, Bo, And Jane need to discuss the sub-step/Major step problem
  • Table of responsibilities
    • Lifecycle Activity Diagrams (Item A) Charlie is gone, and Bo does not have time.
    • Ron discuss with Lorraine, will need helper.
    • Will try to get AbdulMalik involved.
    • Austin: Reach out to Freida or Dave Hamill to pair with ArB member.
    • Ron: Would be happy if we can have a-c done by the WGM - it is aggressive.
    • Austin: One of the rate limiting factors is the change rolling out of use of IP. It is an ideal time to reorg, but also a risky time.
    • Vitality will be a major discussion topic at the TSC in Atlanta.
  • E: BAM New work - Pass 2 Need additional organizational support for discussing the vitality process.
  • Ron will be offline in the end of April, so he will only be available for two more calls.
  • Adjournment at 6:00pm Eastern
