ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (ebBP or BPSS)

The ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (ebBP or BPSS) is a technical business process specification that provides a generic framework to define business collaborations, both between two parties/partners (binary) and multiparty (expressed as two or more binary collaborations).

The ebXML standard ebBP allows to describe formally, in XML, a business process.
Each business process of a collaborative framework is analysed and defined by a service unit (i.e. services sector provider).

Through ebBP it is possible to describe: ul>

  • the roles in a business process;
  • the business documents exchanged into the business process;
  • the business process organization in activities and transactions;
  • the choreography, that is the order and the conditions wherewith the business process is executed.
  • Each ebBP, common reference for a business process representation, is public and shared among enterprises.

    It is possible to see the available and public ebBP list related to Textile Clothing industry for the MODA-ML project (2008-1 version).

    The following example, defined with BPMN graphical notation, is the representation of a simple business process according to ebXML Business Process model.
