Under UN/CEFACT, the ongoing ebXML effort comprises ten new projects defining BPIM rnetadata to ensure consistent business models, using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Unified Modeling Methodology (UMM).
The ebXML BPIM identifies the interactions among trading partners participating in a transaction.
A business process may have a number of activities defined to achieve the same end result, but each of those activities typically has different constraints and different information requirements that dictate a different path through the BPIM. In other words, the ebXML BPIM allows and even assumes that multiple paths will be specified to achieve the same business interaction, depending on the trading partner or trading partners involved.
