ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_367:  RIG Basic Interoperability Data Model (BIDM),
02 February 1993
     This document describes the Basic Interoperability Data Model
(BIDM) standard as developed by the RIG.  The purpose of the BIDM is to
define the minimal set of information about assets that reuse libraries
should be able to exchange to support interoperability. Because the BIDM
describes a minimal set, other data that would be useful for
interoperability, including library data model information, is not
included in the BIDM.  Furthermore, the BIDM does not include
communication protocol or related standards.  Other RIG standards will
address these aspects of interoperability.  Appendix A contains more
information about the RIG and about some of these future standards.
Section 2 of this document defines important terms used in the BIDM.
Section 3 forms the core of the BIDM standard.  It describes the
meta-model of the BIDM, and it defines the data model for basic
interoperability.  The DEFINITIONS section contains some key terms used
in this standard.  Other terms are defined in the RIG Glossary.
