|UN/ECE - P2. Harmonisation documentation
Project leader: Stig Korsgaard ( STK@Finansraadet.dk )
The purpose of the project is to produce the documentation required to
support the eWG harmonisation processes in order to ensure there is a
consistency and harmonisation of business process models and core components
across business domains and sectors, contributing to a concise and well-defined
glossary of business terms, business data semantic definitions, and document
structures for data exchanges.
The scope for this project is to provide sufficient documentation to cover
procedures, checklists etc. for all of the harmonisation activities within
electronic business activities related to the mission and objectives of UN/CEFACT
electronic Business Working Group (eWG). This includes but is not limited to the
following harmonisation activities:
- Reviewing project proposals.
- Analysis and harmonisation of business process models.
- Analysis and harmonisation of discovered core components by conducting
business neutral cross-sectoral reviews of business data definition requests
including the encouragement of reuse so as to maximise interoperability and
minimise sectoral overlaps.
- Analysis of issues raised as a result of harmonisation or simplification
work including those concerning cross-sectoral data exchange implementation and
to propose solutions satisfying the business and technical use of data.
- Harmonisation of implementations in specific syntaxes.
The deliverables from the project are:
- Harmonisation Group Terms of References.
- Harmonisation Group Procedures and Organisation.
- Harmonisation Assessment Check-list (HAC).
- Business Process Modelling and Core Components Primers.
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 business process models and
data, syntaxes 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
electronic business. 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:
- JCC work on harmonisation and draft Terms of Reference.
- EWG T8 Terms of Reference and Procedures.
- Harmonisation issues extracted from eBTWG Core Components Specification
- JCC Business Process Modelling and Core Components Primers.
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.
