Subject: Minutes of Pacific UBL TC call 30|31 May 2005
MINUTES OF PACIFIC UBL TC MEETING 00H30 - 02H30 UTC TUESDAY 31 MAY 2005 ATTENDANCE Jon Bosak (chair) Stephen Green Tim McGrath Many U.S. members did not attend this meeting due to the Memorial Day holiday. STANDING ITEMS Additions to the calendar (http://ibiblio.org/bosak/ubl/calendar.htm) None. Liaison reports None. Subcommittee reports SBSC and SSC: Nothing to report this week. Team report: COML group TimM: This is morphing into a transport group with the participation of the DTTN project from HK. Two meetings have been held in the last two weeks. DTTN have submitted their EF models and exported them into our spreadsheet format; everything so far is very positive. The DDTN approach is highly compatible with the UBL idea and uses some of the UBL library, so moving DTTN documents into UBL is technically doable. The DTTN library consists of 65 international trade/transport documents; 30 of these have received HK industry approval, and a software trial is about to begin using nine of them. Of immediate interest are the additions we could pick up from this work for the UBL library; a further thought would be to implement the suggestion made last year to target the APEC paperless trade documents by simply adopting the DTTN versions. The DTTN set includes a CO document, so we will need to harmonize that with the CrimsonLogic work; we have agreed to weekly meetings to work on this. Team report: European government input TimM: Another call has been scheduled for this Friday. The activity is being driven by the DK group; see their proposed process model. Also the content issues list is currently being worked on by PeterB. OGC appears to be willing to continue; we hope to decide on Friday whether to form an EULSC that would take over this work. EUROPE/ASIA CALL ACTION: Tim to send out the agenda. CONTENT WORK The content issues list is currently being worked on by PeterB; we hope to have the revised list in hand for Wednesday's Europe/Asia TC call. Regarding the proposed new process model posted by PeterB: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl/200505/msg00104.html - StephenG is right, the invoice in 3.4 (billing) is not a new document; it should be represented in grey, not red. - The payment collaboration (3.6 in the model doc) needs to recognize post-remittance reconciliation. This may involve an extended debit note, credit note, invoice, each of which references both a remittance and/or a statement. The statement document also needs to be restored to this collaboration. ACTION: StephenG to convey details of this to PeterB. JonB: PeterB says: "The state of the sourcing use case is not settled. There will be some further work on in august and September to find out the actual documents needed." What does this mean? TimM: The default catalog document is just an item and its price. That's still the default for 2.0, but DK would like to develop a more comprehensive catalog in parallel with our work that could be considered for UBL 2.0 if it were ready in time and could simply be plugged into the set if the TC approved of it. TimM: The outstanding items on the content issues list are: 1. The requirements from the Tax XML TC (expected by next week); 2. Final requirements from European government procurement (PeterB has the task of finishing this); and CO requirements, which can be held for the moment in anticipation of a plug-in. We should probably have more than one issues list [i.e., work list] so that the work can take place in parallel. Perhaps best would be to split the work into (a) the extended process model for procurement (the primary goal) and (b) transportation documents (a secondary goal). JonB: The question is who's going to do the work in which set of TC calls. ACTION: TimM to develop a project plan for content showing how to divide up this work between the available call slots. NEXT WEEK We will start on the Tax XML and European government input.
