1 Implementing the NCS/eOTD A Global Standard Descriptive Language for Cataloging

2 ECCMA Mission: –To improve the quality and reduce the cost of cataloging –To manage an accessible, open and democratic process for achieving rapid consensus in the development of Open Technical Dictionaries –To support the development of Open Source cataloging tools Electronic Commerce Code Management Association is a not for profit membership association; Members include public and private sector buyers, manufacturers, suppliers, application providers, consultants and industry associations from 42 countries.

3 DLIS The Defense Logistics Information Service is a subordinate command of the Defense Logistics Agency with the mission to integrate logistics data from a variety of sources for distribution to DOD, Federal, industry and international users. FLIS Federal Logistic Information System FCS Federal Catalog System NSN National Stock Number CCR Central Contractor Register US NCB July 1st 1952 Defense Cataloging and Standardization Act Public Law

4 The NATO Codification System (NCS) A standard for logistics information exchange covering 16 million items of supply A flexible information system that can be tailored to national requirements An important cornerstone in logistics interoperability

5 Worldwide NCS use

6 An open democratic process ECCMA Code maintenance process

12 eOTD is classification neutral CPV UNSPSC ISIC FSC/NSC NAICS Industry Classifications Used to access many classifications

13 ESN Registry A cooperative cataloging tool eOTD compliance Data integrity Data harmonization Product differentiation

14 A. Same Name – Different Definition Same concept  harmonize definition or Different concept  differentiate name B. Different Name – Same Concept Harmonize name and Harmonize definition ECCMA Harmonization process

15 Class: : GANTRY (STEPLIB Name: gantry) A frame structure which is a temporary erection having a working platform used as a base for building operations or for the support of cranes, scaffolding, or materials. Superclass: : FRAME : FRAME STRUCTURE Classification: Civil and Structural The definition appears to be inconsistent with the named concept; the recommended definition would be as follows GANTRY An attachment of sufficiently substantial structure designed for mounting behind the heel of the boom for shortening cable length, thereby increasing the workload capacity and decreasing the hazard of cable-breakage when booms of exceptional length are used. It may or may not be lowered during transit from place to place. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

16 Class: : FENDER (STEPLIB Name: fender) An artefact intended to protect as a a cushion (as foam rubber or a wood float) between a boat and a dock or between two boats that lessens shock and prevents chafing. Superclass: : ARTEFACT Classification: Transport Equipment The definition appears to be inconsistent with the named concept; the recommended name and definition would be as follows: FENDER:MARINE A device, fixed or portable, serving to cushion the shocks and protect the hull when a vessel comes in contact with a wharf or another vessel. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

17 Class: : DOLPHIN (STEPLIB Name: dolphin) An artefact that is a cluster of closely driven piles used as a fender for a dock or as a mooring or guide for boats. Superclass: : ARTEFACT Classification: Transport Equipment The definition appears to be inconsistent with the concept defined in Concise Oxford English Dictionary; A separate class name should be used: “ dolphin: a small gregarious toothed whale with a beak-like snout and a curved fin on the back” The name and definition does not appear to accurately capture the concept as commonly used in trade and industry : “A Donut fender is a foam-filled fender which has been designed to be slipped over a stationary monopile. The fender floats at the water line, and can rotate upon contact with a ship. These features make it ideal for turning dolphins, and in applications where large water level changes occur, such as in rivers or tidal estuaries.” Recommendation: Use FENDER:MARINE;STATIC and FENDER:MARINE;FLOATING and add the term Dolphin to a synonym table. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

18 Class: : VAN (STEPLIB Name: van) An automotive vehicle which is covered or roofed for carrying and delivering goods. Superclass: : AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLE Classification: Transport Equipment The definition appears to be inconsistent with the named concept; the recommended name and definition would be as follows: TRUCK:VAN A truck with a cab not integral with the enclosed body, designed to protect cargo and equipment from the elements, pilferage, and/or to provide working quarters for personnel. It may be insulated, have windows, lighting, and/or ventilation. Excludes TRUCK:PANEL or TRAILER:VAN A trailer with an enclosed body which may be insulated, designed to protect cargo and equipment from the elements and pilferage and/or to provide working and/or living quarters for personnel. Excludes van type trailers equipped for specific function. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

19 Class: : RAIL TRACK (STEPLIB Name: track) An artefact which is an assembly of the parallel rails of a railroad Superclass: : ARTEFACT Classification: Transport Equipment The definition appears to be inconsistent with the named concept; the recommended name and definition would be as follows: RAIL:TEE;RAILWAY A bar of steel, formed approximately in the shape of the letter T, used as a guide and runway for the flanged wheels of railway cars and other rolling stock. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

20 Class: : BAG (STEPLIB Name: bag) An artefact that is a container made of flexible material (paper, cloth, leather) with an opening at the top, used to carrying things from place to place. Superclass: : ARTEFACT : CONTAINER Classification: Material Handling Equipment The definition appears to duplicate the definition contained in the Concise Oxford English Dictionary; the COED definition should be used as the normative reference: bag a flexible container with an opening at the top. RDL - eOTD Harmonization Examples

21 Much lower cataloging costs – Elimination of most manual aspects of cataloging Better integration with industry – Better item descriptions and descriptive guides Benefits

22 The objective of this project is to establish the ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary (eOTD) as an ISO registry and to provide guidelines for incorporating cataloguing data, which references the eOTD, into STEP data. The eOTD is an open standard descriptive language that contains over 60,000 Standard Item Names and over 30,000 Standard Attribute Names, with definitions, multilingual translations and classification. The eOTD is used to create standardized language independent descriptions of individuals, organizations, locations, goods and services using simple attribute-value pairs. The proposed ISO Technical Specification (ISO/TS) establishes and specifies the behaviour of a registration authority the role of which is to develop, maintain and update an open technical dictionary to be used in intigrating cataloging data into ISO product data files. NWI

23 This Technical Specification specifies the maintenance process applied to an Open Technical Dictionary (OTD) by a registration authority (RA) and provides guidelines for the use of dictionary elements defined in the OTD as reference data for the incorporation of cataloging information into ISO product data files. The following are within the scope of this Technical Specification: — the purpose and scope of an OTD; — a specification of the data elements to be included in the OTD and reference to a document containing the external syntax; — the procedures to be used by the RA to maintain the dictionary, including procedures for requesting changes to the dictionary, registering domain experts, approving changes to the dictionary, and releasing the dictionary; — guidelines for the incorporation of cataloging data, based on dictionary elements defined in an OTD, into ISO product data. The following are outside the scope of this Technical Specification: — the content of the reference dictionary.; NWI
