TMG F2F Meeting in Zurich: UMM 2.0 First Draft is approaching

UN/CEFACT TMG is currently meeting in Zurich at SAP Regensdorf. The major work item within the Business Process Working Group (BPWG) for this week is the 1st Draft of the UMM 2.0 specification. The major benefits of UMM 2.0 will be:

  • UMM 2.0 will be defined as a UML 2.0 profile
  • Re-packaging (flattening) of the UMM meta model
  • Eliminating the complex “maps to” relationships
  • A business transaction may now comprise up to two responding business documents in order to represent different business intentions (e.g., a positive and a negative response to a purchase order)
  • Shortened names of stereotypes
  • In general, the UMM meta model will be less strict – especially during the requirements elicitation phase – as well as less complex

We hope to publish first results at the end of this week. Stay tuned…
