UN/CEFACT TMG is pleased to announce that the second iteration of public review of Core Components Technical Specification (CCTS) Version 3 is expanded. The comments phase of this second public review will now from 16 April 2007 until 10 June 2007.

CCTS describes and specifies a semantic-based approach to the well-understood problem of the lack of information interoperability within and between applications and data bases in the e-business arena. It focuses expecially on a dynamic, flexible and interoperable way of standardizing business semantics of libraries for electronic business data exchange. Therefore, CCTS describes a revolutionary approach for developing a common set of semantic building blocks that represent the general types of business data in use today. This approach provides for the creation of new business vocabularies as well as restructuring of existing business vocabularies to achieve semantic interoperability of data. It defines meta models, and rules necessary for describing the structure and contents of conceptual and logical, and physical data models that can be used for collaborative business processes and information exchange.

UN/CEFACT has an open approach to developing its standards.  This open approach has five goals:

  • Openness - All specifications must be open, free of any constraints or restrictions associated with intellectual property rights (IPR).
  • World - wide Participation - All interested parties should have the opportunity to review, comment on, and contribute to Technical Specifications.
  • Speed - In an area increasingly moving "at Internet speed", it is vitally important that the process of developing specifications be speedy so that the resultant specifications are relevant to the needs of the industry, developers, and users.
  • Compatibility - Technical Specifications must not depend on features that are available only on one application or industry specification. Software developers and end-users around the world must be able to depend on technical applications that can be implemented the same way, and give the same results, on all hardware platforms and operating systems.
  • Technical Excellence - UN/CEFACT working groups will develop all Technical Specifications with the active participation of experts, and liaisons.

The UN/CEFACT Open Development Process (ODP) calls for a eight step approach to developing UN/CEFACT Standards. These eight steps are: 

  1. Proposal
  2. Requirements Determination
  3. First Draft
  4. Working Drafts
  5. Public Review
  6. Implementation Verification
  7. Approval The UN/CEFACT
  8. Maintenance

The CCTS is currently at Step 5 - Public Review - 2nd Iteration. This version incorporates all appropriate comments submitted since the first public review period. This second round of public review is essential to moving the document forward to Step 6 - Implementation Verification.  Interested parties are asked to review the document for technical correctness and submit comments using provided submission template.

Documents for Public Review 

The provided and to be reviewed documents of this public review are:

  7. - Next meeting

Meeting Results

  1. - Review Open Action Items
  2. - Discuss requirement comments and work these into the requirements documentation.
    In order to facilitate the process it was suggested that one person performes an editing process where all comments is put into the main document. Tony volunteered to do this.
  3. UCM Scope
    There was by several participants expressed a need to revisit the scope and charter of the UCM Project Proposal. There seem to some different opinions on where and how far to go. Everybody agrees that the scope of the current context driver mechanism should be the reference point, but while some mean we just need to tweak it a little others see need for major changes. As the scope will influence the requirements it is suggested that the scope discussion is cleared before going through the updated requirements. It is also important to check what kind of participations is needed to change the scope and the consequences of changing them. Oyvind contacts Gunther.
  4. Need for listserv
    There is a need for a listserv that can provide a public archive of all e-mail-discussions. The current UNCEFACT system does no allow that for individual projects. It was therefore suggested that we establish a Yahoo-group for recording this. It should be open to the public for transpearancy but only grant comment rights to approved members. Oyvind will set up the group.  
  5. Do we have and should we have a problem statement with regard to the current methodology so that everybody agrees on the lessons we have learnt from experiences until today?
    There are a number of comments that has come in the CCTS review that relates to issues regarding context. Mark volunteered to extract these and make available for the context group. 
  6. - Next meeting

Action Items

 Tony - edits all comments into the main requirement document.

 Mark - extract all CCTS comments regarding context and makes the document available to the group.

 Oyvind - establish Yahoo-group listserv after clearing this with TMG Chair; check changes of scope effects with Gunter.


Next Meetings


As Tony is soon leaving for vacation while also being responsible for putting togheter the document we will have the next meeting in ONE week in stead of two.

Meeting Results

Agree on agenda

Agreement that the agenda should focus on revisiting of scope.
Extra agenda point about possible comments/ contributions from SAP. See decisions.

Select note taker

Oyvind Aassve

Review Open Action Items # -
Disussion on the scope. There is a need to adjust/ clarify aspects of the scope in the Project Proposal.
  1. Main issue reagarding the Project Proposal puropose was to take out the word "registering" the second part in the Purpose section of the Project Proposal. Proposal  - change the word registering with maintaining (maintenance model for the ucm).
    UCM should not cater to the whole lifecycle. Doug Hill from ICG comments that ICG would regard methodology for registring as part of their scope. Comment that ICG is far behind on Business Process.
    UCM is a fundamental baseline specification within the un/cefact. It is low in the stack, and should not have many dependencies to other specs. However others specs will depend on UCM.
  2. CCMA interface no less important than the registry interface . This interface discussion needs also to be raised to TMG level.
  3. UCM should be clear on what is core and less core about the methodology. A good solution would be to have a core spec and place what is not core in separate documents.
    Important to define the kernel of the context mechanism that can be expanded upon in later revisions/ documents.
    Possible with separate UCM-related specs for Message Assembly, Business Process, run-time aspects of UCM, list of default values of categorization lists(as asked by TBG), application of ucm to ccts.
    What is UCM 1.0 - whole set of spec or only core doc.
                             - need roadmap of these deliverables - Scott will work out some details on this.
    Oyvind asks Gunther about this use of staggered deliverables from a procedurally perspective.
Other business

Next meeting

It was decided that we take the next meeting two weeks from now, in other words that we shift the biweekly meeting with one week. Next meetint therefor June 7. Main topic will be roadmapdiscussion for the UCM deliveries that Scott hopefully has come up with a proposal for till then. The meeting after that will then focus on the new Requirements list.

Action Items

Oyvind - ask Gunther about timeframe of SAP contribution and procedures reagarding a staggered approach to a UCM set of specifications.

    Scott - develop roadmap for UCM and UCM-related documents to be developed. 

Decisions

Regarding SAPs possible comments/ contributions on requirement it was decided that SAP should come up with a timeframe for when they can be able submit these deliveries. UCM will then discuss wheter this is to be accepted.
