Subject: RE: [Fwd: Example Scenarios Used Within the Aerospace Industry]

Very interesting discussions; landing struts, ....

Could I make the following assertion, and this has everything to do with the
focus on ebXML business processes. In building a commercial plane : 

1. it "might be" possible to come up with more or less THE SAME PAYLOAD


2. with respect to the runtime XML business process model (BPSS), each party
uses to manage the B2B relationship, there will be RADICALLY DIFFERECT ebXML
BUSINESS PROCESS models between "non-inspectable commodity items" and
"inspectable items".
