Call to order

Ernst started the meeting at 8:06 am PDT, noting that the quorum was not reached.


Alain remarked that the meeting invitation he had received did not include an agenda. This is puzzling because the same invitation (with FW: in the subject line) received by Ernst did include the agenda.

Administrative issues

Skipped due to lack of quorum.

Project discussion

Writing quantity values
The proposal for adding a predefined signal ASP_DONE has been refined and its properties studied. The results are summarized in the meeting slides, including an analysis of restricting ASP_DONE to the sensitivity list of postponed processes, as suggested at the last meeting. The conclusion is that such a restriction would not support multiple ASPs at the same time.


  • LCS 201x-16: No comments, ready for approval.
  • LCS 201x-18: The sentence defining the quantities allowed to appear in a step limit specification is still clumsy and should be revised. The alternative proposed by Alain is shorter, but possibly ambiguous.
  • LCS 201x-19: The modeling guidelines found in the white paper on Frequency Domain Modeling should be included in the LRM as informative text. This could be done in a note at the end of 14.9.

LRM status
All approved LCSs have been integrated. The slides reflect the current status.

Next steps

We should be able to form the balloting group in Q4 2016 and go to ballot in Q1 2017.

The meeting ended at 9:03 am PDT. The next meeting will be held on August 10, 2016.
