UN/CEFACT Harmonisation Submission Procedures (1) The workbook template distributed by TBG17 is the required format for submissions: This workbook generates the dictionary entry names based on the rules in the CCTS. The workbook MUST be filled out completely, including definitions of used business terms.
UN/CEFACT Harmonisation Submission Procedures (2) Scope statements are very important to assist TBG17 in understanding the business context to which a submission was relates. Additional background information such as class diagrams, data models etc. will be helpful to assist TBG17 in getting an overall picture of the business processes.
UN/CEFACT Harmonisation Submission Requirements TBG17 REQUIRES that at least one representative from a submitting organisation be present at a meeting which is processing their submissions. The Controlled Vocabulary should be used in conjunction with the submissions to ensure a consistent meaning across submissions. –If a term exists in the controlled vocabulary, please use it! –If a term does not yet exist, please submit it for inclusion into the controlled vocabulary. With each submission, changes or additions to the controlled vocabulary are accepted.
UN/CEFACT Setting Expectations Submissions will be reviewed as often as possible. As noted in previous slides, TBG17 meets at least 4 times per year. Twice at the forum, and another two times each year, once in the summer and once in the winter. At all meetings, we must have attendence of a representative from each of the organisations whose submissions are scheduled for review Harmonisation is likely to mean changes to submissions and a flexible culture will be essential to ensure success Harmonisation is not an exact science. There will ALWAYS have to be judgements and compromises.
UN/CEFACT Deliverables TBG17 approved Core Components Library This includes BCC, ACC, etc. Full audit of submissions back to submitter including feedback to illustrate what happened Summary of all actions taken during the meeting Distributed to TBG17 mailing list. Each TBG group should have a representative on our team, this mechanism is a way to ensure your team gets brief feedback on what happened.
