Template Characterization

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.

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.
