Subject: Re: [ubl] Putative voting documents for UBL 2.2 CSPRD03 for February 21, 2018
The processes described in this section, and the business rules associated with them, define a context for the use of UBL 2.2 business documents. They are normative insofar as they provide semantics for the UBL document schemas, but they should not be construed as limiting the application of those schemas.UBL 2.2 extends the pre-award tendering processes, adds a new transportation document for the weight statement, and adds new documents for a business directory and agreements. UBL 2.1 extended the generalized supply chain processes of UBL 2.0 (including the commercial collaborations of international trade) to include support for collaborative planning, forecasting, and replenishment; vendor managed inventory; utility billing; tendering; and intermodal freight management.The document types included in UBL 2.2 are listed in Section 3, "UBL 2.2 Schemas". It is important to note that, as with previous UBL releases, the UBL 2.2 library is designed to support the construction of a wide variety of document types beyond those provided in the 2.2 package. It is expected that implementers will develop their own customized document types and components and that more UBL document types will be added as the library evolves.For guidance in customizing UBL document types, see the UBL Guidelines for Customization .For guidance in submitting recommended additions to and new UBL document types, see the UBL Maintenance Governance Procedures .
I have removed the two figures since they are not comprehensive.I haven't made any other changes, so please let me know ASAP if you have found anything.
On Monday evening I will prepare a new package for voting on Wednesday and will cite it in the agenda.

I'll try to pull something together.and consequently figure 2 should be adjusted to accommodate the new use cases.Perhaps additional figures if someone on the committee is prepared to create them in time, but until then I'll adjust the text and the titles to indicate that the diagrams describe portions of UBL.I do not have the bandwidth to create additional diagrams.Another option is to remove the diagrams entirely since they are no longer comprehensive. I'm leaning towards this final solution if there are no diagrams forthcoming. It might be better to not illustrate anything at all if what is illustrated is not complete.Thanks, again, Levine! . . . . . . . Ken
