Role of PLCS OASIS
-

Implementers forum


OASIS PLCS TC

PLCS

Implementers


forum

Develop & Provide standard to be tested:


P28


Templates/DEXs/Ref Data/AP239


Usage guidance

Test and provide feedback on
standard for improvement

Joint development of
Test cases. I.e.

Data + Ref Data

PLCS OASIS requirements on Implementers forum

1.
The PLCS OASIS TC should develop & provide the implementers forum with the
standard components to be tested:

1.
P28/P21

2.
Templates

3.
Ref Data

4.
DEXs

5.
Question … should the components being tested be already a standard?

2.
The
implementers forum should test the templates / ref data / P28 / DEX / as
specified in the PLCS OASIS TC


The testing should focus on verifying interoperability using the standard components


Use
experience from CAX
IF and earlier PLCS interoperability testing (e.g. DNV, Eurostep,
EPM, LSC)


Start
small to get
the basics right. I.e.


To ensure consistent use of P28, Ref Data, templates


Extend out to more complex data and real world test cases


The implementers forum and the TC should jointly develop set of test data to be used to
ensure agreed usage of data


The implementers forum decide how to test … e.g. round robin exchanges

3.
The PLCS OASIS TC should respond to feedback from implementers forum and
consider modifying
standard components
accordingly and
push through the ballot
process.

Some suggestions

1.
Implementers forum (IF) should be open to all


not just
PLCS OASIS TC members

2.
Reduce barriers to participation. Free to participate

3.
IF should focus on interoperability between tools

4.
Any quality checking software should be software vendor
neutral

5.
Test results should be confidential to IF
