|UN/ECE - P1. Business neutral core component Library
Project leader: Sue Probert ( Sue.Probert@commerceone.com )
The purpose of the project is to compile harmonised Business Neutral Core
Components as a data semantics foundation for developing document exchange
structures to support global electronic business.
The scope for this project is to collate definitions for business neutral
core components representing data irrespectively of their application in any of
the business domains and to analyse and harmonise these into a cohesive
catalogue to form the foundation of the UN/CEFACT Global Core Components
The deliverables from the project are the basis of the Global Core Components
- A catalogue of Business Neutral Core Components including Core Component
Type, Basic Core Components and Aggregate Core Components.
- Data Dictionary.
- Vocabulary of referenced terms.
3. Functional Expertise of Membership
The project team is a group of experts with a balanced profile of skills and
expertise in information analysis, knowledge of different types of business data
and in the presentation and documentation of technical material, either
individually or collectively as a group.
4. Geographical Focus
The focus is global and cross-sectoral within the functional area of business
data. Each UN/CEFACT head of delegation may designate one or more experts to the
project team. In doing so, they may delegate this task to one or more
organizations, which may be national, regional or international. Experts are
expected to contribute to the work based solely on their expertise.
5. Initial Contributions
The following contributions are submitted as part of this proposal. It is
understood that these are only for consideration by the project team and that
other participants may submit their own contributions in order to ensure the
gathering of as much information as possible from those with expertise and a
material interest in the project but at the same time allow diverse voices to
comment on the details of the projects and ensures that no single organization
can dominate the process:
- ebXML Core Components Catalogue.
- A number of international and national catalogues on business data
definitions and core components.
Statement of resource requirements
Participants in the project shall provide resources for their own
participation. The existence and functioning of the project shall not require
any additional resources from the UN/ECE secretariat.
