41 Change of stVal in CDC ALM actSt/oldSt
This tissue has following status: green
Created: 08 Mar 2011
Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part
Issue: ALM is not able to represent the entire life cycle of an alarm: its activation, its deactivation, and its acknowledge. This means that one cannot log all information about an alarm life cycle by storing ONE single log instance of ALM.
Proposal: Since almACk already describes the acknowledge in detail, it is NOT necassary to have the value "Acknowledged" in actSt/oldSt. If acknowledgement is kept out of actSt/oldSt, the whole life cycle activation -> deactivation -> acknowledge can be contained. Following acknowledgement, activation is in oldSt, deactivation in actSt and acknowledge in almAck.
