This page describes the methodology by which any data set is characterized in terms of 15926.
IMPORTANT NOTE 2011 - The information on this page, including the IDS-ADI Characterization Methodology, is being updated and consolidated into the JORD Mapping Methodology. (Latest JORD Project information here.)
The characterization methodology proceeds from a business-use definition of that data set (aka a "foreign schema") via its expression as P7L (aka short-cut, Gellish or Part-7-Lite) templates to transformation into short-hand or full Part-7 / Part-2 expressions. This page and the linked specifications define the process by which short-cuts templates are selected and assembled to create that characterization.
This page and subsequent pages will therefore also explicitly document the short-cut / short-hand and other specific template types implied by that methodology. All templates used are reference data, managed at any time in the WIP RDL (or project RDL extensions).
- Back to MmtSig (Modelling, Methodology & Technology SIG)
- Forward to TemplateStartingSet for initial set of templates to be available in the WIP
- Forward to TemplateMinimumSubSet minimum subset necessary to populate new WIP content.
For formal definition and implementation of Part-2-explicit-Part-7 representations follow the links above.
The methodology below is a detailed elaboration of existing earlier specifications capturing industry best-practice for characterizing or mapping existing business data sets in ISO15926 terms.
- ISO15926 Methodology Specification for Dataset Template Characterization.
The current "IDS-ADI" version of Methodology Document updated in collaboration between POSC-Caesar IDS and FIATECH-ADI Initiatives. An informative Annex to Part 7
- ISO15926 Workbook for Public Template Definitions and their Business Selection Logic.
The current "IDS-ADI" version which forms an Initial Set as an integral part of the Methodology / Informative Annex to Part 7 above.
