Subject: RE: [dcml-frame] Definition of Process Subgroup

This seems much too ambitious to me.  The key to defining DCML standards is to define the interfaces to services.  The most valuable thing the process group is to define the services and their input/output requirements (in general terms).  These should then be considered in terms of business value and market acceptance.  This is critical input to for definition of interfaces by the interface group. 
Note that we should not be defining best practices processes, nor the implementations of tools/service solutions. Best practices are the domain of ITIL, and implementations are the domains of product vendors.  The interfaces define how they fit together and should be the domain of DCML/OASIS specifications.

Subject: [dcml-frame] Definition of Process Subgroup
Importance: High

Hello All,


As promised (and it’s a bit late by my standards), I'm attaching thoughts on the work efforts of the Process Subgroup.  Please reply with comments and suggestions for additional work function and outputs....Robin, please review and provide input, as I think you have a lot to add here..









The Process subgroup is tasked with defining the standard processes, interdependencies, and requirements for the Interfaces/Implementation Subgroup to use to create DCML standard implementations and reference models.  This include the definition of inputs and outputs, best practice workflows and process flows, and inter-process dependencies from one targeted process framework to another.  Prospective processes to be defined and mapped include:


·         The Processes of the ITIL Process Framework

·         Service-Oriented Processes

·         Business Processes

Outputs from the mapping and modeling work by the Process subgroup will include:


-        Process diagrams and models outlining each process to be implemented by the Implementation/Interfaces subgroup

-        Use cases to accompany process models and diagrams, as well as prescriptive relevance to industry usage

-        Specifications on interrelationships for a process to other processes

-        Other interfaces and dependencies on non-process oriented artifacts, if any, to accompany process outputs

-        Detailed description and definition of process to be mapped/modeled

-        Detailed project plan with milestones and dates

-        User Guides and Documentation
