CALENDAR ITEM for all cc:

I am assuming that you may have the source files for the IRFPA Brassboard
Process Modeling viegraphs that were distributed at the DC meeting.  I need
them by next wednesday if at all possible.  Because:

1.      we will hold the first MadeFast'94 working group meeting 
        from 1:00-4:00 on Wednesday, February 23rd, CDR 
        (bldg.560 on the stanford campus) (this is just people 
        within the Stanford area to get started, but includes:  

                Stanford-CDR (confirmed), 
                EITech (confirmed), 
                Rockwell (tbd), 
                Stanford-KSL (tbd), 
                Lockheed-AI-Bouchard (tbd)

2.      it would be very helpful to have the viewgraph file(s),
        (at least full scale viewgraphs) to help everyone get a 
        deeper feeling for the IRPFA design challenge.  i can
        handle binhexed files (expecially from PowerPoint or
        Framemaker 3.0 (4.0 also feasible), or Microsoft Word 5.1
        (RTF also works for MSWord).  if we cann't ship the stuff
        over internet (please onsider sending a diskette (or 5)
        by overnight express.

        beyond ViewGraphs, we are eager to get all possible,
        unclassified information regarding vendors, geometry
        (e.g. 2 or 3D CAD), design-process (design alla CACE/PM),
        mfg-process (SL and CNC process models), ...

3.      we will post our design process activity on the CDR-Share WWW.
        this will include meeting notes as we begin to put our
        knowledge capture tools and behavior in place, and
        appropriate product/process model information ...

4.      can we assume access to the IDA consultants: Joe Lewis,
        Azad Madni, Mike Marean ?

5.      can we assume immediate access to CACE/PM, either to run
        locally or perhaps preferrably to run remotely through
        Perceptronics with an "intelligent agent" there to eliminate
        any learning delay.

6.      there are many more questions, but we'll try to keep from
        overdosing, any and all assistance/help/guidance will be
