A presentation providing an introduction to EDI and UN/EDIFACT is available in the teaching material section.
The slides of today’s UMM 2.0 workshop at Nederlandse Gasunie are available online. The presentation is split into five parts:
Part A: General introduction to the business concept of UMM 2.0
Part B: Business Requirements View
Part C: Business Choreography View
Part D: Business Information Modeling using CCTS (by Fred van Blommestein)
Part E: Enterprise Architect and the UMM Add-In
A the new version 0.3 of the UMM2 Add-In is available from the project’s website. We advise in particular all participants of the Gasunie UMM workshop on the 26th of November to use this version for the workshop.
A new release of the UMM 2.0 Add-In, fixing several bugs in the validator and the UML 2 profile for UMM is available for download from the project’s website.
The most recent Core Component Library CCL08A is available as Enterprise Architect file.
Using the predefined core components, core data types, business information entities, and business data types a business document modeler can easily assemble business documents.
The code which parses the Microsoft Excel representation in .csv into the Enteprise Architect representation is part of the UMM2 Add-In code.
The UMM 2.0 Specifications (both, foundation and base) are currently in ODP Step 5, which means they are currently a public draft. The review cycle for the draft has been extended to 31st October – that’s one week before the forum meeting in Senegal. We kindly encourage our stakeholders to go through the draft and file comments if needed.
The UMM 2.0 Public Draft (and always the version of the UMM 2.0 spec) is located at
The new UMM2AddIn for Enterprise Architect 7.1 has just been released.
Thereby the AddIn includes the UML Profile for UMM 2.0, the UMM 2.0 Quick Linker, and the UMM 2.0 Validator. The UML Profile together with the Quick Linker allows for an easy creation of UMM 2.0 models. With the help of the UMM Validator a UMM 2.0 model can be checked against the constraints defined in the UMM 2.0 specification.
You can download the UMM2AddIn from http://umm2-addin.googlecode.com/ under Downloads.
