OAGi Development Methodology for 2017
We are pleased to announce that we have released an updated version of the OAGi Development Methodology.
Our OAGi Development Methodology has been updated every year since the year 2000. It has brought us through early XML (DTD's), XML Schema, ebXML, Web Services, UN/CEFACT Core Components release 2.01, UN/CEFACT Core Components 3.0 and now JSON.
The Methodology lays out how to form a Working Group, How to run a Working Group, and four phases of development for building OAGIS content. The purpose of the OAGi Development Methodology is to provide a documented, step-by-step, repeatable, and open process for building OAGi open standards.
The OAGi standards development methodology includes four major phases each consisting of multiple activities and deliverables. This is an executive summary of those activities and deliverables. Please refer to the full documentation on the OAGi website Full Document.
The methodology is based on a commitment to timely delivery, quality and incorporation of all the available best practices and is subject to change and adjustments as newer and more relevant methods and process become available.
The four major phases of the Methodology consist of:
Definition – establish and approve a Working Group
Construction – creation of the deliverables
Review and Approval – internal approvals and incorporation of public input
Publication – packaging, deliver general available release and announce
