tbg17 how we do it
TBG17 – How we do it

    • BRS and/or RSM and/or Class Diagram
    • Spreadsheet
      • Core Components
      • Business Information Entities
      • Maybe Qualified Data Types
  • An editor performs technical QA
  • When submissionis technically correct, added to work program
  • The submitter describes the process and reviews the diagrams

TBG17 – How we do it

Based on priorities (Submission date/CEFACT Plenary/FMG)

  • TBG17 reviews submitted Core Components
    • Across submissions when similar business meaning
    • Review each CC for completeness, good definition and name
      • May make changes, with agreement from submitter
    • If any changes made
      • Return submission
      • Submitter (TBG or Liaison) updates BIEs based on TBG17 changes
  • BIEs and qDTs harmonized by TBG17

TBG17 – How we do it

  • When whole submission is harmonized and approved
    • TBG17 sends to ICG
      • For audit
      • For inclusion in next UN/CEFACT Core Component Library
  • If the submitter requests a UN/CEFACT syntax solution, the TBG Project Manager sends the appropriate documents to ATG1 and/or ATG2 for message development.
