Dear all,
                 I've been having some discussions here at ESOC with our
scheduling guys and one of the real world issues that they are having to deal
with is the need for a standard "Simple Service Request".  This has arisen in
dealings with both a commercial organisation and an international partner. In
view of this I'd like to discuss the possibility of adding such a "Simple
Service Request" to the Planning Data Formats Book. I've got a few ideas from
our discussion here and would be happy to discuss these at the next WebEx if
there is room on the agenda.

Essentially what is required is the ability to submit a service request for a
specified time period, station and antenna along with reference to a
configuration profile and possible (permitted) updates to some of the
configuration profile parameters. Three operations would be supported

NEW		-  submit a new request,
REPLACE	-    replace an existing request
DELETE	-     delete an existing request.

An initial pass at a UML model is attached below.

I'd appreciate your feedback on whether you think that this is a useful
addition to the Planning Data Formats.

Cheers for now,
