Some background The client: NSW Land & Property Information their examples reproduced with thanks The overall requirement: a set of services, to support supply of information by industry to government (B2G) by government to industry (G2B) incoming information governed by numerous business rules Implications: Business rules need to be: implemented in multiple platforms visible to multiple stakeholders (as far upstream as possible) Slide 3© Graham Witt 2012
Business rule visibility across the end-to-end process To avoid rework data compliance should be checked as early as possible Industry therefore needs access to Land Registry business rules © Mathew Cooper / Graham Witt 2012Slide 4 Client Subscriber Certifier Electronic Lodgement Network LR Land Registry Business Rule Book Industry case management systems Electronic lodgement & registration systems Common data standard Pre- lodgement acceptability checks Financial institution systems
The challenge To convert from unstructured information with accompanying supporting evidence, to structured data for automated compliance checking To convert from manual compliance checking by expert examiners at the Land Registry, to compliance checking by industry To automate manual compliance checking in industry and the Land Registry Slide 5© Mathew Cooper / Graham Witt 2012

Techniques Standardised terminology (common agreed vocabulary) Business-friendly service definitions Service Use Cases aka Message Use Cases BPMN process models where service logic complex Business-friendly message descriptions Business-friendly notations Design component re-use Natural language business rule statements Catalogued against data items © Graham Witt 2012Slide 12
Standardised terminology For all artefacts Services Message types Data items Data types Processes Agreed Terms, compatible with current industry terminology, with: agreed definitions (intensional) synonyms (allowed and prohibited) exclusions (“as distinct from”) Taxonomic relationships between Terms, e.g., Person is a category of Party Fact types, linking Terms using verb phrases, e.g., Document specifies Transacting Party © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 13

Business-friendly message descriptions Describe content of message types in terms of data items relationships between them cardinality and some content rules Various textual and diagrammatic representations tried Entity-Relationship diagrams XMLSpy diagrams “Hand crafted” structure diagrams (in Visio) “High-level” block diagrams Hierarchic block diagrams with legal numbering Slide 18© Graham Witt 2012

Data types – 1 Reusable data objects, i.e., that appear in multiple places in messages May be simple, e.g., May be complex, e.g. © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 21
Data types – 2 May be part of a taxonomy, e.g., © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 22
Message types Consist of data items that either: have a data type, or are composed of other data items © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 23
Natural language business rule statements – 1 Constrained natural language Standardised terminology (terms and verb phrases) Standardised syntax Allows for easier checking of duplicates, contradictions etc Can be understood by business stakeholders and information providers as well as developers Each catalogued against relevant data item © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 24
Natural language business rule statements – 2 Also full form of rule statement Stand-alone (requires complete context) Can be used as error message expressing desired condition © Graham Witt 2010 - 2012Slide 25
Topics Some background Why this project was a bit different The techniques we used Managing change Lessons and benefits Further reading Slide 26© Graham Witt 2012
Managing change No repository dealing with all this and change Considered wiki approach: need relatively stable position for this to work Many reviewers so needed accessible well-understood documentation and review platform MSWord allowed: version deltas (revision marks) reviewers’ proposed changes (revision marks) reviewers’ comments (comments) hyperlinks for navigation within and between documents PDF allowed: publication of final versions Version number/folder discipline: Published\...vn.00 WIP\...vn.mmaa (e.g., v2.01GW, v2.02PN) Slide 27© Graham Witt 2012

Lessons and benefits Lessons: the importance of agreeing, defining and using a common glossary the need for precision in language used the need to define concepts, messages (data), services/processes and business rules concurrently and iteratively, e.g. errors in message design identified during rule writing Benefits: simplification of existing processes the business has been able to define, communicate, review and update its requirements Slide 29© Mathew Cooper / Graham Witt 2012
A measure of success NECDL, the national body tasked with implementing electronic conveyancing, needed: a single common data standard a set of message types incorporating the various state requirements That body: determined the functional requirements for the national system used the NSW message and document schemas as the basis for the common data standard adopted the NSW documentation techniques then incorporated each jurisdiction’s additional or different requirements to produce a common data standard for the National Electronic Conveyancing System Slide 30© Graham Witt 2012
