Version 7 (modified by onnopaap, 16 years ago)


This page describes the methodology by which any data set is characterized in terms of 15926.

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 defines 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.
  • Continue on this page for the definition of the Template Characterization Methodology

This methodology is a detailed elaboration of existing earlier reference specifications. These are provided for reference only, and these pages are intended to supersede them.


This outline describes the methodology proceeding through the layers of modelling in terms of the template types involved.
