5. Discuss outstanding Overall Specification issues.
6. Next steps 



Current MFD Model issues:

1.     Scan Job Status,  EmailOut Job Status, FaxOut Job Status , have
both ImagesCompleted and the full set of <Service>JobCounters which
includes several Images counters. Print Job Status, Copy Job Status,
FaxIn Job Status and  EmailIn Job Status do not include an impressions
completed, but do include the <Service>JobCounters

<PZ>PrintJobStatus does include ImpressionsCompleted.  Copy should as
well.  Email In and FaxIn may need ImagesCompleted since the processing
of a job may not result in hard copy out.  Those jobs always accept some
number of images.</PZ>

2.     Are the Service Elements the same counters as Job oriented
counter values or are they separate?   If they are separate, does
persistence have any significance?

<PZ>Job counters have a scope of a single job.  Service counters have a
scope of all the jobs processed by the service.  At this time all
service/job related counters share a common data type.  The recent
change to accommodate persistence had a side effect I missed.  The
resolution is either to redefine the job level counters or to mandate a
lifetime value for the persistence.  I prefer the former resolution.
Another side effect is that Job counters have counts only applicable to
a service (i.e., Availability, Monitoring).  I believe the data types
for the Job/Document counters needs to be corrected.  It should be
discussed next week at the MFD meeting.</PZ>

3.     What is the difference between  the Images Completed count and
the Work Images count?

<PZ>It is my opinion that ImagesCompleted and ImpressionCompleted should
map to the counters DataStream Images/Impressions count.  My assumption
is that the status level simple counter would be used by applications to
show work progress.  This should be discussed next week as well.</PZ>

4.     Why is there a separate  images completed counter for some
Services, but none (or no corresponding impressions counter) for others?

<PZ>Late night editing sessions...constant interruptions to do my day
job...service by service definition as opposed to an overall approach.
Bottom line is that I think it needs to be fixed.</PZ>

5.     Should JobAccountingSheets, JobErrorSheets, JobSheetsCol be
aligned with InsertSheet? (i.e. definition of media as a choice between
MediaCol or a sequence of Media & MediaTypye)?
