Technical rule 2014-01
This European CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA 16667:2013) has been prepared by CEN Workshop "eBusiness in the fashion industry, textile, clothing and footwear - eBIZ" at CEN, the secretariat of which is held by AENOR (Spain). The aim of this document is to offer a guideline of the updated Reference Architecture (RA) for the eBusiness harmonisation in the Textile Clothing and Footwear sectors. The eBIZ architecture aims to enable interoperability between existing systems and organisations. Achieving it will lower the threshold for starting eBusiness both for large enterprises and for medium and small actors in the supply chain and would also encourage technology suppliers to provide better support and services for eBusiness. It can be used as Reference Architecture both for new eBusiness implementations or by users needing to modify their existing systems or to achieve interoperability with others.
