Table of Contents


PPS Committee Specification (Version 1.0) was approved on September 29th, 2011. The first part of this specification of Core Elements shows XML elements for composing XML documents of planning and scheduling in manufacturing industries. Then the next part for Transaction Messages shows how to exchange the document in specific contexts of operations management. The final part for Profile Specifications shows a method to apply the standard to each local situation.


The purpose of the OASIS Production Planning and Scheduling TC is to develop common object models and corresponding XML schemas for production planning and scheduling software, which can communicate with each other in order to establish collaborative planning and scheduling on intra and/or inter enterprises in manufacturing industries.
