The September issue of the FDT Group Newsletter reports on the WIB study of eEDDL vs. FDT/DTM. From the FDT newsletter: "The conclusions presented at the meeting are very positive for FDT Technology. Details will be given in the final report; however, the highlight is that FDT proves to be an intrinsically more powerful technology:- eEDDL offers required data accessibility and functionality as used in commissioning of FF smart devices - FDT/DTM offers required data accessibility and extended functionality as used in commissioning and maintenance of FF smart devices in a very effective manner. Recommendations were unambiguous: FDT is the right platform for advanced applications. We should not try to stretch the capabilities of eEDDL to perform tasks for which it is not fit. Vendors should more exploit the opportunities to implement intelligence in DTMs."
