Subject: A reasonable example of drop-ship UBL 1.0 ordering process?
Greetings UBL TC/UBL-DEV (cc ebBP TC) I'm looking at an example definition of an ebBP 2.0.1 business process for a fictitious UBL 1.0 dropship trading scenario, based on the example the last ebBP spec included in Appendix A (developed by J. Dean E. P. Hemopo) and I've treid to change it a bit to bring it more in line with the details of UBL 1.0. Would anyone like to comment on the attached diagram. It isn't supposed to be exactly accurate (it demonstrates ebBP more, probably, than UBL 1.0) but if it does miss the mark for UBL good practise please let us know. The parts in red are those I've particularly amended. This version just covers ordering (the original deals with fulfillment and billing too, providing examples of complex choreography). I'd be interested in any comments too on how actual, expressly usable business process definitions could be created for UBL 1.0 for later addition to an ebBP package or supplementary package. My own ideas so far are: 1. just use a simple buyer-seller scenario but try to make the defintions so modular that they can be combined somehow for use by drop-ship vendors if necessary 2 distinguish full UBL from UBL SBS so that either can be specified 3 base definitions on usage of each document or set of related documents so that some can choose to adopt one or a few documents only and get use out of the definition(s) 4 possibly allow for includes of the definitions within other defintions (All this would be using ebBP 2.0.1) Maybe this could be developed a little more on ubl-dev. Many thanks Stephen Green
