Unified Context Methodology

Till Janner, Christoph Schroth, Gunther Stuhec & Joe Zhou

abstract Context, as a key driver to precisely determine business meaning and intent of information definition and exchange, requires a formal structure and methodology. Although context has been identified as a key component of the UN/CEFACT standard, a formal mechanism for defining and using context has not been in place. With an increasing maturity of a number of standards (CCTS, CCMA, UMM, etc.) within UN/CEFACT that all have strong needs to define and use context, now is the time to form a project to tackle this problem.


The purpose of this project is to develop a unified methodology and technical specification for developing, registering, and using context drivers as part and for the application of a number of UN/CEFACT standard artefacts, such as Business Data Type, Business Information Entity, Business Message, Business Area, Business Process Models etc. This project will start from the current context mechanism described in the Core Components Technical Specification (CCTS).


This project will be a joint effort between TMG, TBG, and ICG. It will be, however, led and managed by TMG with participation from TBG and ICG members, as context methodology will impact a number of standards artefacts being developed under UN/CEFACT.

topics Scope of the project: The envisioned specification will provide a methodology for assigning context to business information using a number of defined context drivers by advancing the context driver mechanism of the CCTS. The specification will take into account the ongoing work within TMG (UMM collaboration models), ICG (Registry Implementation Specification) and within TBG (Common Business Process Catalogue). The methodology will also include a recommendation for the code lists that can be used for the defined context drivers and aproposal of how to maintain these code lists.
