1. Identify Minute Taker
2. Approval of minutes from 10/4/10 meeting
3. Agenda bashing
4. Discuss current issues with MFD model (See below)
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)?
