Role of InventoryLaura Wright

Questions have arisen at the PC level about Inventory's role, especially in the context of Codex and MarcCat
Review our thoughts about the role of Inventory (here's what we were thinking last spring:

Has anything changed? If so, how? If not, are we adhering to our model?

Laura will be attending the PC meeting on the 13th and would like to accurately represent MM SIG perspectives (even if we don't all agree)

  1. Well, then I'll be the first to try the comment function. I'm participating in the ERM group and wanted to mention that the ERM apps under development will interoperate with the other folio apps such as Orders and Invoices. A key objective is to integrate ERM into the existing FOLIO architecture to avoid redundancy. In the last weeks we have also talked to Denis, Ann-Marie and Charlotte about workflows and data exchange and have made good progress.

  2. hello all,  When I mentioned earlier that the development of ERM seems to be overlapping with what the Codex was originally intended to do, I didn't mean that I conceived of it as something outside of, or disconnected from, the rest of FOLIO.  I think that creating used cases and definitions for each of the apps would be helpful when deciding where features may need to be developed and which are already on the FOLIO 'radar."
