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 Raw material Dyeing Request
Raw material Dyeing Request (Updated)
Request to Subcontractor for the Dyeing of raw material
The present guide has been issued to assist the companies of the Textile-Clothing sector in the implementation of the standard XML document type “RAW MATERIAL DYEING REQUEST”, providing all the instruction required for its use in the context of e-commerce between Subcontractors and their Customers shown in the enclosed diagram
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 Request is used by a Yarn Producer to request from a Subcontractor an Offer for the dyeing of a raw material.
The Request is structured in four levels:
Macro-type of Work Requested = document root (7 types of Request)
Product Family = document qualifier (type of product with reference to the manufacturing process; e.g.: combed yarn, jacquard weaved fabric, ..)
Product Specifications = "xxxSpecs" (technical characteristics and properties of the product)
Operations requested 0 "XXXMnfrOperation" (details of the works requested)
Quantities, unit measures and prices must be referred to the third level (Line Item)

Subsequent developments in this document have been funded by the eBIZ 4.0 project.
