About the ebTWG
The eBusiness Transition Working Group (ebTWG) was created by UN/CEFACT Steering Group (CSG) in July 2001 for the purpose of continuing the UN/CEFACT's role in pioneering the development of XML standards for electronic business. The group was formed to build on the success of the earlier ebXML Joint Initiative between UN/CEFACT and OASIS, which delivered its first set of specifications in May 2001.

About the TMWG
The purpose of the Techniques & Methodologies Working Group (TMWG) is to research and identify techniques and methodologies which could be utilised by CEFACT and its working groups to enhance the process by which its deliverables are produced and integrated.

The key deliverables of the TMWG are:

  • Proposals, including draft Recommendations, on how specific techniques and methodologies could be implemented to allow CEFACT to achieve its goals;
  • Proof of concept, by feasibility studies and pilots, of the above proposals;
  • Implementation and migration plan for any approved new technique and/or methodology.

The TMWG is a group of experts with broad-based knowledge of existing techniques and methodologies used within CEFACT, technological developments, and the functions of CEFACT and its sub groups. Each CEFACT head of delegation may designate one or more experts to the TMWG. In doing so, they may delegate this task to one or more organisations, which may be national, regional or international. Experts are expected to contribute to the work based solely on their expertise.
