JTEG Webpage Design
Today’s special session continued the JTEG webpage design discussion to include a first look at the initial design. As a reminder, the webpage has been initiated though not yet populated at http://jteg.ncms.org
To recap the already published concept behind the JTEG website:
The website will have both restricted access and open access areas and the placing of the content will be distributed according to its sensitivity as deemed by the JTEG co-chairs. Within the “authorized” area, access will require username/password login and be targeted primarily to the DoD practitioners and their supporting contractors. Additional information in the restricted area will be just for the JTEG principles and associated contractor support. Review and approval authority for content posting and user access will be documented in the JTEG Communications Plan. The open access area and posted information will be for the public and industry. For example, the public access area will include information concerning DoD depot maintenance technology insertion needs, requirements, resource access information, events, general JTEG knowledge, etc. Business rules concerning the mechanics of reviewing and approving content for posting to the website will be developed by the JTEG principals.
Discussions continued concerning access to information posted on the webpage. As noted above, individuals requiring access to the restricted JTEG information will need to make a request, be approved, and then be registered by the web designers/maintainers. Mr Langlais noted that an initial list will be compiled, approved by one or both of the JTEG co-chairs, then forwarded to the webpage designers to populate the initial access list. The process for individuals in the future to request access to the restricted areas of the webpage will be posted on the webpage’s main screen which will have open access to all via the internet.
Further discussions took place on the categories of content and initial menus provided on the current webpage as “place holders.” The webpage designers noted that they will be using a developmental platform which will provide a great deal of flexibility in designing the webpage. During the webpage walkthrough, the webpage designers made it clear that any combination/permutation of menus and content can be designed – whether deemed open or restricted access. Mr Langlais and Mr Sny took the action to provide the webpage designers with a matrix to initially designate which category of content (based on 13 categories proposed during last meetings’ discussion) would likely contain information requiring open or restricted access. They will also provide a review and comment on the proposed initial menus and the pull down menu architecture concerning the placement of the hyperlinks to lead users to the information within menu headings. Mr. Langlais made it clear that this product would only be a draft and would still require review and approval from Mr. Greg Kilchenstein before implementation.
The use of the “drop box” was discussed and agreed that it would be the tool utilized to transfer content approved for posting from the JTEG members/co-chairs to the website maintainers. It was noted that a proposal/approval/routing process needs to be developed and approved before it is used. Also, the webpage designers pointed out that items placed in the drop box are private to the group, not to the individual.
The last item discussed was the requirement for the JTEG webpage to have “discussion forum” capability. The webpage designers can easily add this capability and will do so for the next iteration of the webpage.
NEXT JTEG MEETING: Target date is August 8the or 9th. Need to coordinate with calendars.
NEW ACTION ITEMS
AI-29 – Provide the webpage designers with a matrix to initially designate which category of content would likely contain information requiring open or restricted access, define the types of access, and review/comment on the proposed initial menus. Also provide a menu/pull down menu architecture for initial design.
