The Field Force Management (FFM) TC [1] members have produced an updated Committee Note Draft (CND) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:

Field Force Management Integration Interface Requirements Version 1.0
Committee Note Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
28 February 2012

Specification Overview:
This document describes the Field Force Management Integration Interface (FFMII) business drivers, business use cases, and high level features requirements.

TC Description:
The OASIS FFM TC addresses the data use and integration challenges faced by enterprises that deploy large field staffs to deliver services to customers. FFM TC members define a standard integration interface for use in relaying field work requests between centralized planning and field communication systems. Principal use cases include field work request dispatching and the reliable and scalable collection of data from the field. FFM is designed for use in products that support communication between field work operations and central data stores such as CRM contact info, job ticketing, inventory and accounting systems, installation records, etc.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts 13 March 2012 and ends 28 March 2012. The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review on 25 October 2011 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
