FIDX Working Group Meeting Minutes

May 9, 2006

On May 9, 2006, about one dozen furniture manufacturers and suppliers participated in an on-line FIDX working group meeting. The meeting started at 1pm EST.

Mike Overholt and John Edmunds reviewed a Load Tender Acceptance (990) schema that was originally presented at the March 7 meeting. After a brief discussion, the schema was formally accepted. Mike will coordinate with Dave Purvis to post the schema on this site and he will also review the Load Tender schema to determine if any changes are required to make it consistent with the Load Tender Acceptance schema.

At the March 7 meeting, Jeff Baker reviewed the schemas needed to handle the transactions associated with product warranties. It was agreed that the following six schemas will be needed:

  • Registration
  • Registration Acknowledgement
  • Claim (or Credit) Request
  • Claim (or Credit) Acknowledgement
  • Service Request
  • Service Acknowledgement

During the May 9 meeting, Jeff reviewed recommended schemas for both Warranty Registration and Warranty Registration Acknowledgement. After considerable discussion, it was agreed that Jeff will edit the schemas and review them at the next meeting. In the meanwhile, he will coordinate with Dave Purvis to post the proposed schemas on this site.

The next FIDX meeting will be an on-line meeting on Tuesday, July 18, 2006 at 1pm EST. The meeting adjourned at 2:15 pm.
