Elias Muluneh built a prototype of extracting location information from OpenLMIS API and send it to HEARTH registry.  Code is committed and hope is to roll that back into OpenLMIS.

Check out the trip report for details around value and next steps.

Finalize Non-functional Requirements

Non-Functional Requirements - performance

Wesley Brown (TBD)

Need more information from the warehouse clerk role

Request: please review the wiki page prior to the discussion

  • (Review the link to the left)
  • Trying to get the working data to be operationalized
  • Two categories, proposed and long-term proposal and represent the feedback accurately.
  • We would like to develop an appropriate working dataset for each role. Do others have insight to the roles that are defined in these roles
  • Request:
    • Follow up with individuals from each implementation to verify the information is correct (See above)
  • Big change in long-term is the change for total number of full supply items. This is a significant change.
  • Performance Goals:
    • Developing preferred baseline metrics
    • The user primarily cares about how long it takes to get an action done. Breaking it down here allows us to identify why something is slow.
  • Feedback:
    • Please add a target hardware profile for the OpenLMIS system that we already have available.
    • The initial implementation assumes that there would be an installation in country. How can we adjust for that in this performance benchmark?
    • Now that we have identified the low hanging fruit of the performance, we can fine tune from there. We should consider varying network scenarios and chaos monkey type profiles where chaos is injected into the mix.
    • Please provide reviews of each line item to validate this with users. Overall, the methodology is appropriate, timely and valuable for the product.
  • Next Steps:
    • Evaluate and scope the process for achieving these benchmarks
    • Prioritize these performance improvements
    • Add them to the product roadmap
    • Additionally, Wes is scoping the steps to automate these processes

Next PC meeting: Ideas??

  • Continue Asset management discussion, we have invited Jen Antilla from I-TECH to join and share her experience with OpenELIS

  • OpenSRP Integration project status walk through

Additional Requests and Information:

  • Rebecca Alban (Unlicensed) is joining the team temporarily to support us with Community Management till we determine the long term strategy for OpenLMIS support. Please help me in welcoming her on our communication channels!
