FIDX On-Line Meeting Minutes

August 17, 2005

A FIDX on-line meeting was held from 1 pm to approximately 2:20 pm EDT on August 17, 2005. The purpose of the meeting was to review and discuss the product activity/vendor managed inventory (852) and freight invoice (210) schemas.

Mike Overholt reviewed the proposed 852 schema changes. After discussion, the schema was approved. The schema will be posted by David Purvis on the FIDX.org web site.

Ashish Gandhi reviewed the proposed 210 schema changes. After considerable discussion, it was agreed that additional edits are required. Ashish will make the required edits and the schema will be reviewed at the next FIDX on-line meeting.

The next regular FIDX meeting scheduled for September 23 in Charlotte was discussed and it was decided to reschedule the meeting to a later date. All meeting participants agreed that the on-line format is very effective for developing and discussing XML schemas. The format of regular meeting was also discussed and it was suggested that a concurrent formal (face to face) and on-line meeting format could be quite effective. David Purvis will investigate the feasibility of that meeting format.

The next FIDX on-line meeting is scheduled for Wednesday August 31, 2005 at 1pm EDT. The purpose of the meeting will be to review and approve the freight invoice (210) schema and to discuss the date and format for the next formal (face-to-face) FIDX meeting.
