International Supply Chain Reference Model

 

 

Project Purpose

The purpose of this work is to develop a model of the supply chain that can be used as a reference for all parties engaged in the supply chain in order to assist in harmonization of trade processes and data, use of best practice, promotion and training.

Project Scope

The Model builds on the earlier work carried out by the Business Process Analysis Group (BPAWG) of UN/CEFACT. This described the major processes involved in the International Supply Chain in its simplest form by the three key business processes involved-Buy, Ship, Pay- and the main Business Partner Types involved- Customer, Supplier, Intermediary and Authority.

Project Deliverables

The deliverables from the project will be: a) A structured reference data model based on the latest release of the CCL including a high level BRS and a high level RSM. b) Semantics links with UN/EDIFACT messaging and the TDED to support increased interoperability between data exchange structures

Exit Criteria

a) A structured CCL-based reference data model including a high level BRS and a high level RSM • Internal and external review logs showing how comments have been addressed • Final version ready for publication b) Semantics links with UN/EDIFACT and UNTDED • Internal and external review logs showing how comments have been addressed • Final version ready for publication

Project Team Membership and Required Functional Expertise
