Update on Task Group Activities

The Automated Food Service equipment task group is working on a new version of the LOV Fryer and is also reviewing the Oil Supply profile as well. These updates are expected to be completed soon and go through the formal profile update process.

The AFS group is developing these profiles using the new task group procedures implementing the working group concept for meetings within the task group. This is going well so far, as it streamlines the development meetings and task group efforts.

A new sub-meter profile is also being proposed in the BAS task group. Formal task group work on this proposal should start soon. If you are interested, please contact the LonMark technical team to gain project access for this task group profile project.

Collaboration Tool

To aid the collaboration of task group activities we are testing the use of Basecamp collaboration tool to share files, ideas and coordinate meetings.
