Abstract

Full text in www.tecnopolo.enea.it/?k=2&li=en&q=11 In this paper we discuss some aspects in business document customisation, and we present a suite of applications, the Document Customisation Suite, that can help the final users of a business standard in its adoption. This work starts from our studies and experiences on setting up business collaborations among Small and Medium Enterprises (that have specific exigency and characteristics) and from various activities performed in the context of the European project. It bases on the peculiarities of existing business standards and schema languages for document template definition. The paper is moreover strictly related with a set of initiatives for the definition of an open framework that supports the adoption of common specifications for business collaboration setting up. The context of this work is the definition of common frameworks to enhance the interoperability of enterprise systems in performing business transactions and collaborations.

The leading effort for creating a standard semantic basis for business documents to solve electronic business document interoperability problem came from the UN/CEFACT (United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business) Core Components Technical Specification (CCTS) through a document modeling methodology. Currently, the main challenge in using UN/CEFACT CCTS based approaches is that the document artifacts are stored in spreadsheets and this makes it very difficult to discover the previously defined components and to check their consistency. Furthermore, businesses need to customize standard documents according to their specific needs. The first XML implementation of UN/CEFACT CCTS, namely, Universal Business Language (UBL) provides detailed text-based descriptions of customization mechanisms. However without automated tool support, it is difficult to apply the customization and to maintain the consistency of the customizations. iSURF eDoCreator tool addresses these problems by providing an online common UN/CEFACT CCTS based document component modeling repository which integrates the machine processable version of paper-based UBL customization guidelines. In this way, iSURF eDoCreator environment aims to maximize re-use of available document building blocks and minimize the tedious document design and customization efforts. The environment also proved to be very useful in performing the gap analysis between different customizations of UBL.

Managing business workflow can benefit from the adoption of new solutions proposed by different initiatives of ICT. MODA-ML project defined an interoperability framework, based on ebXML standard, to enhance collaboration and interaction inside the Textile/Clothing supply chain. In this paper we briefly give an overview of the architecture of MODA-ML and we present our approach to generate automatically BPSS documents to provide a common formal description of the business process supported. Because of the requirements of the T/C sector, we have also studied some improvements to obtain more flexibility in defining partner profiles with CPP documents.

The aim of this paper is to put in evidence the problem of ‘customisation’ of standardised data models in B2B. Standards play a relevant role in creating a favourable environment for eBusiness adoption but there are many issues that must be considered when they change from an environment characterised by few large players to an environment with a widespread fabric of networked organisations. This paper is focused on one of these issues and proposes experiences and outcomes related to the role and the creation of use profiles starting from the requirements arisen from the case study of eBIZ-TCF (project of DG Enterprise aiming to eBusiness harmonisation in the Textile Clothing and Footwear industry in Europe).
