Moda-ML, 2013-1 version
THIS VERSION is the 2013-1, consistent with eBiz 2013-1
In this new release three upgrades are worth notice:
- 1- The revised and extended Data Model of Yarn
- 2- The association of RFID devices to products and transport packages
- 3- The refitting of the Textiles Invoice to the requirements of international commerce
The revised and extended Data Model of Yarn
- This extended set of data, usable to specify technical and commercial data of yarn in catalogues and orders, includes
the data that univocally identify the article and any classification or commercial information
- Manufacturing data
the data that specify the manufacturing and dyeing characteristics
- Quality data
the data that represent the quality (or faultiness) of the product and measure the quality variation that can occur between production batches due to the degradation of machines and other falls in the spinning cycle.
A set of data elements for the transmission of CIE-Lab colorimetric data is also foreseen.
The association of RFID devices to products and transport packages
The tagging of articles and transport packages with RFID technology ( both with GS1 and with company codes ) can now be reported in all the Moda-ML documents, and reference to the serial number wired into the chips can be made.
The refitting of the Textiles Invoice to the requirements of international commerce
A new base of data has been developed to deal with VAT description in all cases and in all countries, by introducing separate elements for the actual tax rate, the tax scheme and the tax category.
This set of data has been added in the line of each document concerning Purchase Orders and Work Orders.
Document General Purpose Request Updated
This document has been heavily updated in order to facilitate the restriction of the (products) object of the request and to use it to ask for a larger set of documents.
Element Note has been updated
The use of Note element has been increased in all the documents, both for cardinality as well as for use of structured contents (couple label - value agreed between the parties). It is to be noticed that the note element should be avoided if not strictly necessary and never should be used instead of already existing and structured elements.
