                                          Why Change?
      UN Economic Commission for Europe




• Designed for Technical Specifications
  – Adjusting the ODP for other deliverables not always a
    perfect fit, necessitating a very complicated
    document.

• New and changed procedures, e.g.
  – IPR report
  – 3 Country Rule

• Enable new organisational structure

• Enable many types of documents without having
  to change the ODP

                                          Maintenance
      UN Economic Commission for Europe




• The Bureau receives any comments following
  product publication and the completion of the
  work of the Project Team.

• Should the Bureau determine that a
  significant revision of the product is required,
  such a maintenance project is begun at the
  Project Inception stage.

                                               Maintenance Steps

The following steps apply to all requests for changes to
  existing libraries/code lists/directories:
•   Change request(s) submitted and logged
•   Technical assessment
•   Semantic assessment
•   Harmonization
•   Update of libraries/code lists/directories
•   Validation of updated libraries/code lists/directories
    – Quality Assurance (internal review)

                                                      Library Production

• Change request(s) are submitted, logged, and checked
• Technical and semantic assessments are based on published
  checklists
• Domain experts are needed for semantic assessment of the
  business need and solution
• Harmonization includes:
   – comparison of the change to the existing library or libraries to determine if it is
     indeed ‘new’ and not semantically equivalent to something that already
     exists
   – any changes to the submission are agreed upon by the submitter and by the
     appropriate domain team(s)
   – adding references in the libraries to maintain and document the alignment
     between the libraries.
        UN Economic Commission for Europe

                                                Library Production

• Quality Assurance (internal)
   – By library team
   – By the submitters

• Validation (independent)
   – By experts in the libraries, in the domains involved, in any syntax
     solutions produced, and in the publication of the particular libraries.

• Publication
   – Approved libraries are submitted to the UNECE Secretariat and to the
     ISO Secretariat (TDED) for publication.

                                          Key principles

• Driven by
   – CCL releases
   – RSM from projects
• No “DMR process”
   – All changes through CCL and RSM
• “All inclusive”
   – Currently the entire package of schemas is
     provided in one go

        UN Economic Commission for Europe
                                              Key principles (2)

• Production rules defined in
  the XML NDR
• Mostly automated production
   – The NDR is aimed at fully-automated production
     (“push the button”)
   – Still some “manual intervention” is needed
• Checklist will be made publicly available to control the
  “manual intervention”
• Will work with CCL Maintenance Team and the submitter (e.g.
  project) to correct any issues found
   • Errors found will be corrected in the source, i.e. the CCL or
     RSM/Business Message Template, before re-production of
     XML schemas
                                                                   111

• Availability                             • Need to improve visibility

                                                 User concern (2)

• Time-to-market                          • Limited resources
  – When the RSM is done, I                 available for “manual
    want the XML yesterday!                 intervention”
                                          • Fully automated
                                            production tool
                                          • Integrated production
                                            process and tools

                                                  User concern (3)

• Quality                                 • Engage projects in
  – Does the XML meet my                    validation process
    business needs?                       • Versioning
  – Is it good XML?                          – XML schemas are
                                               potentially a run-time
                                               artifact
                                             – XML versioning not
                                               aligned to business level

             Formal Validation
For ensuring quality of libraries
       UN Economic Commission for Europe

                                            Libraries



For ensuring quality, all
                                                     Libraries
libraries need formal validation

Current subjects:
- EDIFACT
- CCL

Candidate subjects :
                                           EDIFACT               CCL
- Recommendations as code lists
    e.g. UN/LOCODE
- TDED
        UN Economic Commission for Europe

                                             Preparation

Setting up Formal Validation Procedure:
• Studying specifications
   – e.g. CCTS, NDR, RSM, BRS, Submission Template for CCL
• Defining checking rules for finding conflicts
   – between old and new versions of library
   – between two parts e.g. BIE and CC , of library
   – Between a library and supporting documents e.g. RSMs
     (similar to ICG audit procedures for CCL)
• Developing small tools for automatic checking rules for
  improving efficiency of validation
       UN Economic Commission for Europe

                                           Validation

Doing Formal Validation on each library
• Doing validation based on checking rules
• Writing reports of formal validation for corresponding teams
  to maintain libraries
• Repeat until resolved issues of formal validation

                                           Conclusion

Join the Bureau Programme Support Team

• UN/CEFACT’s reorganisation is designed to make UN/CEFACT
  more efficient, responsive to our stakeholders

• Many areas for improvement have been identified in the past
  and present

• Some areas need resources in order to implement these
  improvements
