The UN/CEFACT Reference Data Models bridge two domains within the International Supply Chain, namely the Transport and Logistics domain and the Supply Chain and Procurement domain. In terms of content, they provide a unifying framework for consolidating the constituent data models of these two domains. Importantly for users, the unified framework addresses any overlap between the concepts used in their different contexts. From a technical perspective, the Reference Data Models provide a unique semantic electronic tool. Ready-made building blocks are provided that can be reused and further specified.
Hands on customisation and reuse of UN/CEFACT Reference Data Models (RDMs)
The Reference Data Models share the same base of components from the UN Core Component Library (UN CCL). These components are interlinked, but applied differently due to varying context and semantics between international sales and transport contracts, information exchanges and business practices.
The webinar will provide an opportunity to get to know the different core component objects of the Reference Data Models (RDMs) and receive comprehensive information on the concept, methodology and benefits of the RDMs. This introduction is followed by a practical part in which we show you how you can reuse the reference data model for your supply chain data exchange implementations with GEFEG.FX software. Using a practical example, we present how to create your own company/organization’s implementation guidelines based on the RDMs in the distribution repository.
Topics of our webinar on “CEFACT Reference Data Models – Reuse and specify ready-to-use building blocks for your data model”
