XML structures of eBIZ/TC Upstream documents (2018-1)
Introduction to the XML document template
The structure of the XML documents is the very prescriptive part of the eBIZ/TC Upstream framework:
using the eBIZ/TC Upstream documents, the prescriptions must be completely respected about structure of the documents, names and coding,
optionality or mandatory use of elements, meaning of each element.
Otherwise the documents could be not validable with the XML Schema (that are the only way to check the
formal compliance of the documents) or could generate misunderstandings about the meaning of the message on the side of your partners.
The allowable customisations are about the use or not of a document or about the elements of the document that are declared 'optional'; they can
be used to simplify the documents (not all the elements are always necessary).
The (template of) eBIZ/TC Upstream documents of each release are on www.ebiz.enea.it or www.moda-ml.org and are represented by:
XML Schemas, public but that cannot be modified,
they must be used to validate the XML documents.
User Guides, that completely describe the structure and the aim of the documents,
together with the elements and their coding rules.
Compare version User Guides, with comparison against the previous version of the same document (available for this version: TRUE).
Equivalent JSON schema towards XML Schema of the document (available for this version: False).
in some cases, Samples and Stylesheets(XSL) might be available
and can be used to visualize with a browser the content of the XML documents.
The proposed stylesheets should be considered as a sample or a reference
to be used directly or customised or ignored and substituted with custom stylesheets.
Document Accessory Purchase Order Change
Accessory Purchase Order Change (Updated)
Order Change sent to the Garment Accessory Producer (Supplier) (allows to change destination, quantity, delivery date)
The present guide has been issued to assist the companies of the Textile-Clothing sector in the implementation of the standard XML document type “GARMENT ACCESSORY PURCHASE ORDER CHANGE”, providing all the instruction required for its use in any context of e-commerce between Apparel or Fabric Producers and Garment Accessory Producers (Suppliers).
All the rules required for the construction and validation of the document are embedded into the specific XML-Schema, which is detailed in section "Implementation guide".
The Apparel or the Fabric Producer sends an Order Change any time he must modify some conditions of his previous Order (eg. to cancel items not delivered in time) or amend errors (eg. invalid prices).
Basic function of the message is to replace an invalid Order with a valid Order, amending:
- suppliable quantities
- dates and places of delivery
The Order Change can show a number of lines different from the related Purchase Order, when variations/cancellations have occurred so as to create the splitting of an Order Line.
However the sum of the quantities of the lines in the Order Change (confirmed + varied + cancelled) must always not less than the sum of the quantities in the original Order.
When the quantity is change the original line must be splitted and the confimed amount and canceled amount should be
explicited through the 'act' flag.
This XML document has been realized by Guido Cucchiara supported by Angelo Frascella and Arianna Brutti, XML-Lab (initiative of ENEA and Forum per la Tecnologia dell'Informazione) in collaboration with Massimo Perona (Domina).
Subsequent developments have been realized with the collaboration of Roberto Ciliesa (Domina) and financed by the eBIZ 4.0 project.
