Subject: (ANN) Production Planning and Scheduling (PPS) Version 1.0 approved and published as a Committee Specification

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of an OASIS
Committee Specification (CS) by the members of the OASIS Production
Planning and Scheduling TC:

Production Planning and Scheduling (PPS) Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
29 September 2011

The OASIS Production Planning and Scheduling (PPS) specification deals
with problems of decision-making in all manufacturing companies who
want to have a sophisticated information system for production
planning and scheduling. The PPS specification provides XML schema and
communication protocols for information exchange among manufacturing
application programs in the web-services environment. The Core
Elements section focuses on information model of core elements which
can be used as ontology in the production planning and scheduling
domain. Since the elements have been designed without particular
contexts in planning and scheduling, they can be used in any specific
type of messages as a building block depending on the context of
application programs. The Transaction Messages section focuses on
transaction messages that represent domain information sent or
received by application programs in accordance with the context of the
communication, as well as transaction rules for contexts such as
pushing and pulling of the information required. Finally, the Profile
Specifications section focuses on profiles of application programs
that may exchange the messages. Application profile and implementation
profile are defined. Implementation profile shows capability of
application programs in terms of services for message exchange,
selecting from all exchange items defined in the application profile.
The profile can be used for definition of a minimum level of
implementation of application programs which are involved in a
community of data exchange.
