October 2001Project presentation REGNET 21 REGNET Functional Architecture
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 22 OVERVIEW
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 23 Work Area A: Content Engineering Digitization of 2- and 3-dimensional objects using data capturing systems already on the market Use of Dublin Core Metadata to enable Cross Domain searches within the 'virtual union' catalogue (generation via an available Metadata Editor or Harvester) Use of documentation standards in the different domains (MARC21, CIDOC, AMICO/CIMI, CDWA, EAD, ISAD(G), TEI,...) Use or modification of existing Document Type Definitions (XML-DTDs) to describe objects and collections (eg. AMICO, or CIMI-based) as well as products Storage of XML (Extensible Markup Language) structured data in data bases at the content provider's site Development of Stylesheets (XSL) for data presentation in online or printed form (eg. dedicated and personalized catalogues)
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 24 Work Area B: Platform Engineering (1) Implementation of a B2B-commerce system based on XML-data transfer, following existing and emerging standards as specified by the ebXML community. Implementation of a B2C-commerce system including an 'internet auction' system. Integration of a distributed search and retrieval (S&R) component based on Z39.50 standard or similar methodologies based on XML and http protocol, for accessing distributed Cultural Heritage related catalogues as well as product/Service catalogues in the eBusiness environment.
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 25 Work Area B: Platform Engineering (1) Integration of a customer management system based on relational data base management supoorting customer relationships. Use of an appropriate integration environment for all the middleware components (B2B, B2C, S&R, RDBMS, Metadata Management, …). Usage of Open Software Standards and Software available preferable in the public domain (eg. LINUX). Usage of low cost hardware. Integration of wireless access to the REGNET System.
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 26 Work Area C: Enterprise Engineering (1) Definition of Core Processes for REGNET, comprising at least: access and data entry to distributed catalogues, a shopping cart system, creation of a personalized catalogue based on retrieved data from the 'virtual catalogue' (in printed and electronic form), an auction system (eg. duplicates of posters), and a delivery system for physical goods (eg. goods from museum stores). Use of XML/EDI (eg: Simple-eCo Elements like: Order, Invoice, Despatch, Report,...) for exchange of business data (based on ebXML recommendations).
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 27 Work Area C: Enterprise Engineering (2) Use of XML/EDI like methodology (eg: Simple-eCo Elements like: Order, Invoice, Despatch, Report,...) for exchange of business data (based on ebXML recommendations). Definition of the workflow connected with the creation of a electronic publication (eg.: storyboard development, content management, compilation of data, production, delivery) as reference model for electronic publishing Definition of appropriate 'business profiles' evolved from different functions and processes (eg: 'content manager') for the involved personnel (following the recommendations to the European Parliaments just being worked out).
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 28 Work Packages (1) WP-1: Analysis of the State of the Art and Development of Concepts Definition of content to be provided, development of a documentation and digitisation plan for content creation and management (Work Area A). Identification of standards to be used, development of the user requirements and system requirements & specifications (Work Area B). Development of the legal framework and partnership model, definition of supported business functions, identification of market (Segments) and user groups (Work Area C)Work Area AWork Area BWork Area C
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 29 Work Packages (2) WP-2: Implementation of the System and Preparation of Services and Product Generation Preparation of content and products (Work Area A). System implementation; development of the building blocks; integration into the REGNET-System (Work Area B). Settlement of the legal framework, business process (re-) engineering, market preparation (Work Area C).Work Area AWork Area BWork Area C WP-3: Validation of the REGNET-Demonstrator and Preparation of the Demonstration Phase Validation of the REGNET-demonstrator; preparation of the demonstration phase.
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 30 Work Packages (3) WP-4: Demonstration The REGNET-System will be used in a trial services which includes an initial testing phase (selected users). The REGNET- demonstration part of the project includes: execution of the demonstration phase (trial service); refinement of system and services where appropriate and necessary; analysis of the trial service. WP-5: Development of an exploitation plan Development of an exploitation plan on different levels (content providers, service providers, business access points). The plan has to include new models of co-operations and partnerships.
October 2001Project presentation REGNET 31 Work Packages (4) WP-6: Information Dissemination Information dissemination will be done using different types of dissemination channels: Project WEB-Site, conferences, seminars, printed and electronic publications. Special attention will be drawn to the participation of project members in relevant standardisation committees and workshops. WP-7: Project Management This work package includes management, reporting, quality assurance, etc. The management activities are split up into contractual and technical matters and are covered by two different partners.
