BOM PDG Goals and Activities Develop a Specification for Base Object Models The open standardization of BOMs is essential Broad participation required to mature the BOM specification to a point where it can survive the Balloting & Acceptance Processes Specification format will follow: SISO-ADM-005-Draft-V0.8 Guide For SISO Standards Style “Trial Use” Period Completed Summer 2004 Based on SAC TC 20 May 2003 meeting, go-ahead given to publish standard as a “Trial-Use” Standard and conduct a trial use “Trial Use” Period Completed Summer 2004 Effort includes a Guidance Document and a Specification numbered as follows: SISO-STD-003-xxxx Base Object Model (BOM) Template SpecificationSISO-STD-003-xxxx Base Object Model (BOM) Template Specification SISO-STD xxxx Guide For BOM Use and Implementation:SISO-STD xxxx Guide For BOM Use and Implementation: –addresses the “how to” in generating BOMs and the “how to” in piecing them together into BOM-assemblies in order to produce a SOM and/or FOM

Ballot Results Overall Ballot Results: 36 of the 38 ballot pool members responded. That is a 94.74% overall response from the balloters. We had 35 accept/reject votes and 1 abstention (Guide) We had 36 accept/reject votes (Standard) This means the product ballot process is valid because we have met the two requirements per SISO BPDP Section 4.3.6: minimum ballot return percentage of 75% – we hit 94.74%; and, less than 30% abstention – we had 1 abstention (2.63%) on the Guidance Document. From this point forward, the percentage-computations are to be based on the total number of accept/reject votes received (per SISO BPDP Section 4.3.6) – which is 35 for the Guidance and 36 for the Specification. For the Guidance Document: 17 of the 35 voted to accept (48.57%) 17 of the 35 voted to accept w/comment (48.57%) Overall 34 of 35 votes for acceptance (97.14%) 1 of the 35 voted to reject with comment (2.86%) Ballot result for the Guidance document has met the requirement for a valid and successful ballot: at least 65% of the accept/reject ballots must be for accept – we hit 97.14% For the Specification: 16 of the 36 voted to accept. That is a 44.44% response to accept 19 of the 36 voted to accept with comment. That is a 52.77% response to accept with comment The above two provides an overall 35 of 36 votes for acceptance. That is a 97.21% response to accept 1 of the 36 voted to reject with comment. That is a 2.77% response to reject with comment This means that the ballot result for the Specification document has met the requirement for a valid and successful ballot per SISO BPDP Section 4.3.6: at least 75% of the accept/reject ballots must be for accept – we hit 97.21%.
