The Quality Review team have completed their review of various submissions
from the
Business Process Methodology teams as submitted on March 19th to 21st 2001.

Whilst these documents are the deliverables from two separate sub-teams
within the
Business Process Methodology team, the QR team felt it was beneficial to
review all
these submissions at the same time.

We recommend that the ebXML Business Process Specification Schema v0.99
document go
immediately for its second round of public review.

We further recommend that the remaining ebXML discussion papers:
 Business Process and Business Information Analysis Overview v0.6,
 Business Process Analysis Worksheets and Guidelines v0.8e,
 Catalog of Common Business Processes v0.91,
 E-Commerce and Simple Negotiation Patterns v0.3,
- also go forward  for their first round of public review.

However, the Quality Review team are concerned about the weak alignment of
some of these
documents with the ebXML Specification Schema.  In many cases they either
fail to
differentiate or clearly specify the relationship between the UMM Metamodel
and the
Business Process Specification Schema.

We are concerned that the confusion these current documents may spawn
within the wider
community will be damaging to the overall ebXML initiative.  For example,
it is
perceivable that these documents could result in development of UMM
Metamodel compliant
business process models, but not ebXML compliant models.

Our comments on these documents to be found in the attached report.  These
should be
addressed as part of the public review process.

I would ask Klaus to liaise with Karl Best to arrange for these documents
to be
available for Public Review as soon as possible.

The documents required are available from:

NB there is a later change log (issues list) that is not on this site. i
will attach a
copy to this message.
