To improve dictionary on line to support the use of the framework
Description of work
Task 2.1 Analysis of the different scenario at national level:
The identification and analysis the most complex scenario in particular fibre/
fabrics dyeing and finishing will lead to understand the local importance given
to the tailoring. The comparison of the different scenario will lead to a summary
of the main production models and to identify commonalties and differences.
Task 2.2 Definition of a common logical infrastructure of the dictionary
and of the repository of business scenarios
A common logical infrastructure of the dictionary will be established (ebXML
methodological specifications will be assumed as a reference) to share a common
way to represent and formalise the vocabulary; a procedure to exchange contributions
will be setup.
The dictionary must me able to support also the coding aspects of the vocabulary
(for example it must be able to document the valid/allowed values that each
term could assume).
The opportunity to integrate the dictionary with an approach based on ontologies
(for example produced in task 3) will be evaluated as well as the opportunity
to support XML.
A repository, either separate or integrated, will be designed to contain modelling
A brief outline of the dictionary features and structure will be drafted.
Task 2.3 Development of a web based infrastructure for the dictionary
and for the repository of business scenarios
A web application is developed to support the logical infrastructure of task
1.1; the aim is to use it both for internal purposes as well as for dissemination
purposes. The final version will be available from the TEX-WEAVE web site.
Task 2.4 Filling of the sector dictionary of terms (Filling of repositories)
Formal ebXML compliant business process modellisation of the TEX-SPIN and TEX-WEAVE
scenarios and loading in the repository infrastructure; systematisation of the
existing dictionary of TEX-SPIN according with the new structure and addition
of further elements produced during the TEX-WEAVE activities.
Task 2.5 Feasibility of the submission of sector Core Components to
The feasibility of the submission of a set of sector Core Components towards
UN/CEFACT or any other international repository of core components recognized
as contributing to ebXML will be analysed.
Due to administrative problems caused by changes in the European Commission contractual rules for standardization the task 2 was not completely accomplished.
