Agenda review

  • Notes of 20160504_PLA_call review
  • notional division of products into product families and lines, to provide examples for peer review.
    • Level of granularity
    • Identify which pieces are orphaned, and the political elements to be surfaced.
    • Positioning cross-product family artifacts (standards naming)
  • BAM-lite feedback and review
    • Governance on V2.x (v2.9 substantive changes)
    • develop form to request establishing a Product Family


  • Group notes that PLA is lightly attended at WGMs
  • Mary Kay wonders if we need to make updates to the slides for Friday
  • Discussion over change from DSTU to STU
  • Product family for CDA – Austin made change to slide 7, which is the goal state. Added detail into management section. Discussion over importance of QA functions.
  • A tough nut to crack is methodology. Big task will be sorting out what that is supposed to look like. As far as management, for Baltimore we should organize a joint session between Structured Docs and every WG that has contributed to the CDA IG. Also send out general announcement to co-chairs list regarding this meeting.
    • Draft email - Dear Co-Chairs: SAVE THE DATE! During the September WGM, the Product Line Architecture project team is looking for input and observations regarding the creation of a CDA Management group as part of rolling out the CDA Product Family. Participation is encouraged for those WGs which have developed, are actively developing, or plan to develop CDA implementation guides. Interested WGs should plan on sending representatives to this meeting on (Meeting Info).
      • ACTION: Draft a Mission & Charter for the CDA management group.
    • Between now and then we will flesh out how to handle the Methodology piece. Vocabulary has been getting their house in order, so they are much better organized for being the vocabulary methodology piece that we can plug in to this. A more difficult issue is how to deal with methodology around templating. One barrier is the difference between Trifolia and Art-Decor. Pat: would turning the template management over to the Templates group help? Austin: A potential problem is that we could be forced to publish out of Art-Décor which would cause changes to the standard because of the different tool. In the ideal world Art-Décor and Trifolia would come together.
