Introduction > The basic structure of the IDM schema

 

The basic structure of the IDMP schema

 

The main element T_NEW_CATALOG defines that a new and complete catalogue data pool is made available.

 

The IDM schema is subdivided in data ranges that are specified in the subsequent child-elements (see figure 1) in T_NEW_CATALOG.

Figure 1 - child elements in T_NEW_CATALOG

 

 

The data ranges are not used in isolation from each other. In some data ranges, data is initially created and used from other data ranges via referencing.

 

 

 

Description of the data ranges

 

CATALOG

 

CATALOG is used to store administrative information concerning the data pool. E.g. the version of the data format, release date or the unique identification of the data pool.

 

 

 

SUPPLIER

 

SUPPLIER is used to store administrative information concerning the manufacturer. Example: specification of contact data, EDI communication parameters or the manufacturer's country of origin.

 

 

GLOBAL_DEFINITION

 

The GLOBAL_DEFINITION data range is a kind of data pool for information used in the other data ranges. Example: storage of media, e.g. photos and installation and/or various notes instructions.

 

 

SERIES

 

SERIES is used to store the data for the description of the items. Items are combined into product groups, such as armchairs or intermediate elements.

 

 

PART_LISTS

 

PARTS_LISTS is used to assemble dynamic piece lists, with the sub-positions assigned to rules (DECISIONS) that determine depending on the version in which quantity the respective position exists in the piece list.

 

 

FEATURE_DEFINITION

 

The version information is specified in FEATURE_DEFINITION. Example: Data for version families (FEATURE_CLASS), version types (FEATURE), the associated versions (OPTIONS) or rules (DECISIONS) are specified.

 

 

PRICE_DEFINITION

 

The price information is specified in PRICE_DEFINITION. Example: Data for price characteristics groups (PRICE_FEATURE_GROUP),, VAT (VALUE_ADDED_TAXES), product categories (MERCHANDISE GROUP) or price types (PRICE_TYPE) are specified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elements of the catalogue structure

IDM L 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Elements of the catalogue structure

 

Creating elements of the catalogue structure

 

Creating series information

 

Series are defined in the following element:

 

 T_NEW_CATALOG/SERIES/SERIE

 

Ein Bild, das Text enthält.

Automatisch generierte Beschreibung

All child elements are used to describe the properties of the series.Versions are assigned to series via assessment procedures (RESTRICTION_REF).

 

Creating versions

 

Example: creating versions

 

1. Definition of the version properties/version variations

 

The version properties are defined in the following element:

 

FEATURE_DEFINITION/OPTION_DEFINITION

<OPTION_DEFINITION>

</OPTION_DEFINITION>

 

This element is used to define the properties of colours, materials, shape versions and dimensions.

 

 

2. Creating the versions

 

The versions are created in the following element:

 

FEATURE_DEFINITION/FEATURES/FEATURE

<FEATURE FEATURE_NO="1">

            <OPTIONS>

                         <OPTION OPTION_KEY="L" 

                         </OPTION>

                         <OPTION OPTION_KEY="S" 

                                                            </OPTION>

             </OPTIONS>

</FEATURE>

 

Version types are defined via version type numbers, e.g. 1. The version is unequivocally identified by the combination of FEATURE_NO in FEATURE_DEFINITION/FEATURES/FEATURE  and OPTION_KEY in FEATURE_DEFINITION/FEATURES/FEATURE/OPTIONS/OPTION.

 

Creating item information

 

Item information is specified in the following element:

 

T_NEW_CATALOG/SERIES/SERIE/PRODUCT_GROUPS/PRODUCT_GROUP/ITEMS/ITEM

 

The element ITEM has a multitude of elements used to describe the properties of items. An item is identified via the attribute TYPE_NO.

Please note that depending on the series, an item may have different properties. Consequently, an item and its properties can only be unequivocally identified in combination with the series.

 

Series-specific item information

 

Depending on the series, items may have different properties. Items are automatically assigned to a series because the element ITEM is a child element of the SERIE element.

 

Creating version information

 

Version information is created in the IDM schema as described in the following:

 

- Creation of variations for the versions

- Assignment of variation and version type

 

Creating variations

 

The variations for the versions are defined as a data pool in the element T_NEW_CATALOG/FEATURE_DEFINITION/OPTION_DEFINITION. 

 

Figure 2 - The element OPTION_DEFINITION

 

The OPTION_DEFINITION element contains elements in which the respective variations are specified:

 

MATERIAL

This element is used to define the properties of materials using colours and textures. These elements are referenced from variation version types.

OPTION_MEASURE

This element is used to specify the values of versions that are expressed in a dimension (e.g. sitting height (variation type 35)).

 

 

Example: variations for colours

    

<OPTION_DEFINITION>

 <MATERIAL>

             <COLOR COLOR_NO="1">

                         <RGB_RED>255</RGB_RED>

                         <RGB_GREEN>0</RGB_GREEN>

                         <RGB_BLUE>0</RGB_BLUE>

             </COLOR>

             <COLOR COLOR_NO="2">

                         <RGB_RED>133</RGB_RED>

                         <RGB_GREEN>273</RGB_GREEN>

                         <RGB_BLUE>0</RGB_BLUE>

             </COLOR>

             <COLOR COLOR_NO="3">

                         <RGB_RED>0</RGB_RED>

                         <RGB_GREEN>89</RGB_GREEN>

                         <RGB_BLUE>89</RGB_BLUE>

             </COLOR>

 </MATERIAL>

</OPTION_DEFINITION>

 

The above elements define three colours that are identified by numbers (COLOR_NO) 1-3.

 

Assignment of variation and version type

 

To use the colours defined in the example above, version types must be assigned, which results in versions.

 

The assignment of version types (FEATURE) and variations (OPTION) to versions is done in the element T_NEW_CATALOG/FEATURE_DEFINITION/FEATURES/FEATURE. A variation is formed and identified by the combination of FEATURE and OPTION. The following XML elements define 2 feed heights (version type 15).

 

Example: assembly of versions from version type and variations 

 

<FEATURE FEATURE_NO="15">

             <OPTIONS>

                         <OPTION OPTION_KEY="10">

                                    <OPTION_TEXT>

       </OPTION_TEXT>

                         </OPTION>

                         <OPTION OPTION_KEY="30">

                                    <OPTION_TEXT>

      </OPTION_TEXT>

                         </OPTION>

             </OPTIONS>

             <FEATURE_TEXT>

   </FEATURE_TEXT>

 <HEADER_POS_VARIATION_TYPE>K</HEADER_POS_VARIATION_TYPE>

</FEATURE>

 

The child elements of FEATURE describe the properties of the version type, the child elements of OPTION describe the properties of the version. Analogous to this principle, which applies for essentially all elements in the IDM schema, the OPTION_TEXT defines a text that designates the version. The element FEATURE_TEXT defines a text that designates the version type.

Soll in den Daten eine Variante referenziert werden, muss immer die Kombination aus FEATURE_NO und OPTION_KEY als Referenzierungschlüssel angegeben werden.Soll in den Daten eine Variante referenziert werden, muss immer die Kombination aus FEATURE_NO und OPTION_KEY als Referenzierungschlüssel angegeben werden.

 

If the data is supposed to reference a version, the combination of FEATURE_NO and OPTION_KEY must always be specified as a reference key.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arranging the catalogue structure

IDML 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Arranging the catalogue structure

 

Arranging the catalogue structure

 

Assigning series to versions

 

Ranges are assigned to all series in the following element:

 

SERIES/DECISIONS/DECISION_REF

 

The version is assigned to the series by referencing a rule that defines the version as a valid combination in the SERIES/SERIE/DECISIONS/DECISION_REF element.
 

Assigning items, series and versions

 

Item-series assignment

 

Items are automatically assigned to series because the ITEM element is a child element of the SERIES element:

 

SERIES/SERIE/PRODUCT_GROUPS/PRODUCT_GROUP/ITEMS/ITEM

 

Item-specific rules can be defined via SERIES/SERIE/PRODUCT_GROUPS/PRODUCT_GROUP/ITEMS/ITEM/DECISIONS/DECISIONS_REF.

 

 

Example: Rule for version assignment

 

Element: FEATURE_DEFINITION/DECISIONS/DECISION

 

<DECISIONS>
 
     <DECISIONVALIDATION_TYPE="0"DECISION_NO="1">
 
       <DECISION_NAME_TEXT>
         <LANGUAGEISO_LANGUAGE_ID="EN">

Catalogue structure

IDML 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Catalogue structure

 

Catalogue and element structure

 

The catalogue structure in the IDM schema is mapped by the following element hierarchy:

 

 

 

Figure 1 - Element hierarchy in the IDM schema

 

The SERIE element is used to define the properties of a series.Product groups (PRODUCT_GROUPS) in which items (ITEMS) with similar version types are combined are defined within the series. The items are automatically assigned to a series because they are child elements of the SERIE element. The DECISIONS elements are used to cross-series assign versions to a series, product group or item via rules. It is also possible to assign actions (ACTIONS) to the rules defined in DECISIONS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Referencing

IDML 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Referencing

 

Referencing of elements

 

The IDM schema establishes relationships between elements and defines information at a central point which are used on multiple occasions in another position. The reuse of the information and the structure of element relationships takes place via referencing. The type of referencing used in the IDM schema is described in the following.

 

Definition of terms

 

The IDM schema uses the following terms for the referencing of elements:

 

Key element

An XML element referenced by other elements.

Ref element

An XML element referencing other elements.

 

 

Referencing procedure

 

The key element has attributes that allow for its unequivocal identification. The ref element has at least the key attributes of the key element. The reference in which the attribute values of the ref element are identical to those of the key element is established between the elements.

 

Example: Referencing the rule across multiple series, from the series, the product group and the item.

The following example shows how a rule (DECISION) is referenced from an item (ITEM). Only some of the XML elements are explained.

 

 

Key element

T_NEW_CATALOG/FEATURE_DEFINITION/DECISIONS

 

<DECISIONS>                                                                                                                        <DECISION DECISION_NO="1"/> … </DECISION>                                                                   <DECISION DECISION_NO="2"/> … </DECISION>                                                                   <DECISION DECISION_NO="3"/> … </DECISION>                                                                   . . .                                                                                                                          </DECISIONS>

 

Ref element

T_NEW_CATALOG/SERIES/SERIE/PRODUCT_GROUPS/PRODUCT_GROUP/ITEMS/ITEM

 

 

<ITEMS>                                                                                                                                            <ITEM TYPE_NO="1111">                                                                                                                  <DECISIONS>                                                                                                                                    <DECISION_REF DECISION_NO="1" > … </DECISION_REF>                                                        . . .                                                                                                  </ITEMS>

 

Example: referencing of a version

 

The following example shows how to reference a version from an assessment procedure.

 

Key element

T_NEW_CATALOG/FEATURE_DEFINITION/FEATURES/FEATURE/OPTIONS/OPTION

 

<FEATURES>                                                                                                                          <FEATURE FEATURE_NO="15"> <!-- Fußhöhe -->                                                                               <OPTIONS>                                                                                                                                      <OPTION OPTION_KEY="100"> … </OPTION>                                                                        <OPTION OPTION_KEY="120"> … </OPTION>                                                                            <OPTION OPTION_KEY="30"> … </OPTION>                                                                  </OPTIONS>                                                                                                          </FEATURE>                                                                                                              <FEATURE FEATURE_NO="17"> <!-- Fußform -->                                                                         <OPTIONS>                                                                                                                                      <OPTION OPTION_KEY="F00"> … </OPTION>                                                                        <OPTION OPTION_KEY="F3Z"> … </OPTION>                                                                        <OPTION OPTION_KEY="F70"> … </OPTION>                                                            </OPTIONS>                                                                                                              </FEATURE>                                                                                                       </FEATURES>

For version type 15, the XML elements define three versions (OPTION) with codes 100,120,30. For version type 17, three versions with codes F00, F3Z, F70 are defined. A version is identified via the combination of FEATURE_NO and OPTION_KEY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assessment procedure

IDML 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Assessment procedure

 

Definition and assignment of rules

 

 

The earlier assessments (RESTRICTIONS) are now fully replaced by rules (DECISIONS).

The rules/assessment procedures are assigned to serious or items by references from the corresponding elements. In total, all assessment procedures defined in this element must be referenced from either series or items.

Rules that are referenced by items take priority over rules referenced by series.

 

DECISIONS have 3 types of rules (identified by TEST_ID).

Depending on the TEST_ID element, different rules can be specified.

If the value in TEST_ID is 1, the rule is a "preparation rule".

This allows for the definition of valid versions in OPTION_COMBINATION. These are used to determine the valid versions of a version type. These rules do not have an action part ("ACTIONS") and they define a quantity of version combinations that are either true or false. This is a table with the version types (FEATURES) as column headings; the cell contents of this table are values, lists, intervals, version groups that are linked by quantity operators.

The conditions are supplemented with operators. The special data type operator was defined for this purpose. It may contain the following values:

 

eq (equal)                                                                                                                                       ne (not equal)                                                                                                                                      in (is contained in a quantity)                                                                                                             nin (is not contained in a quantity)                                                                                             gt (greater)                                                                                                                                           lt (less)                                                                                                                                               ge (greater than or equal)                                                                                                         le (less than or equal)

The individual OPTION_COMBINATIONs must be considered as ELSE branches. This means that as soon as a condition line (OPTION_COMBINATIONS) receives a hit, the others will not be executed anymore.

If the value in TEST_ID is 2, the rule is a an action rule. It allows for the definition of actions in addition to the conditions.

If all conditions within an „OPTION_COMBINATION“ are satisfied, all signed actions (ACTIONS) then can set values or make version types (FEATURES) invisible depending on conditions. If an OPTION_COMBINATION is satisfied, the other conditions are not processed.

Actions (ACTIONS) are instructions that are executed if a condition is met. The following actions can be executed:

 

·        The setting of versions (SET_FEATURE_FIXED) with the following options:

o   Direct, e.g. main fabric = "blue" (OPTION)

o   the setting of version values from another version type (FEATURE), e.g. ledge fabric = main fabric

o   the calculation of versions (e.g. sitting height + 5 cm).

This function is only available for dimension versions and takes place via a formula string that may contain parameters and values.

This requires the version type (e.g. sitting height) to be assigned with a parameter (e.g. "sh").

The measure parameter (MEASURE_PARAMETER) can be supplemented with a unit (MEASURE_UNIT). The formula (FORMULA_STRING) therefore only contains the parameters (e.g. planning width = 2 * st + sb, which means that the planning width results from the sitting width + 2 times the side element width.

·        Setting default versions (SET_FEATURE_DEFAULT):

These can be filled if no value has been entered yet. The same options as above apply.

·        The visibility of version types (SET_FEATURE_VISIBLE, SET_FEATURE_INVISIBLE) and disabling of rules (DISABLE_DECISION, ENABLE_DECISION):

Example: for wooden feet, a potentially existing version type for a shade can be displayed and made invisible if a metal foot is selected.

 

Action rules are usually used in the configurator if an option value (a version) changes. If, for example, the foot version is changed from stainless steel to wood, a version type for the shade can be displayed.

 

 

Data types

IDML 4.0.1 XML schema documentation

 

Introduction > Data types

 

Data types and value ranges

 

The IDM schema uses the data types defined in the standard XML schema 1.0 second edition (28 October 2004).

 

It uses the following data types:

 

boolean

This data type maps the logical values "true" or "false". In accordance with the W3C recommendation for XML schemas, the values that can be used in the IDM are true/false or 1/0.

date

In the IDMP, the data type date is used in conformity with the XML schemas as follows:

 

YYYY-MM-DD

Y = year, M = moth, D = day

integer

Numbers can be positive and negative integers.

nonNegativeInteger

Value is a positive integer, including 0

positiveInteger

Value is a positive integer, excluding 0

decimal

The data type is used in the IDMP for floating-point values. Floating-point values for this data type are, as recommended by the W3C, stored as 126.56 or -45.98000 or +27.0.

string

A limited number of alphanumeric characters and special characters.

anyURI

The data type is used in the IDMP for URLs.anyURI represents a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The lexical part of anyURI is an indefinite sequence of characters that correspond to a legal URI. An anyURI value can be absolute or relative and may contain fragment codes (e.g. an URI reference).

language

The data type is used in the IDMP for the mapping of valid language keys.language represents codes for natural languages Tags for the Identification of Languagesas defined in the Thevaluerangeof language is the quantum of all character sequences that represent a valid code of a natural language. For ISO languages, the format consists of a sequence of 2-3 lower case letters optionally followed by a hyphen and a country code consisting of 2 upper case letters, e.g. en-US.

Additionally, there is also a user-defined data type:

operator

Thy data type is used for rules in the IDMP. This simple, self-defined data type defines an operator for comparisons. The comparison operator is a string of 1 to 4 characters length and may contain the following values:

eq (equal)

ne (not equal)

in (is contained in a quantity)

nin (is not contained in a quantity)

gt (greater)

lt (less)

ge (greater than or equal)

le (less than or equal)

 

 

The value ranges of the above data types are usually restricted for the elements in the IDMP. The "restrictions" in the data type definition contains restrictions for minimum and maximum values, permitted characters (pattern) and value lists.

 

In the documentation of the XML schema of the IDM, the value ranges are specified by the information coming after M and P.

Explanation of the element properties

 

Each element is documented on the basis of a description and its properties. The following shows an example for an element description:

 

Description:

 

This element is used to specify the currency key for the prices stated in the data pool. For the currency keyISO Währungs-ID must be used.

Changing currencies within the same data pool are not permitted. Updates during the year must be delivered in the same currency as the base file.

   D   string

   P   [A-Z]{1,3}

   M   [1:3]

 

The element properties are documented on the right side. They have the following meaning:

 

D

The data type of the element is documented here. If this position is left blank, the element does not contain any reference data but additional child-elements.

P

The entries made in P and M document the value range of an element. A regular expression that defines the permitted values must be entered in P.

M

The minimum and maximum permitted values must be entered in M. In the case of a string data type, P defines the permitted characters and M the minimum and maximum character length.

In the case of a numeric data type, the permitted minimum and maximum value is defined.
