11179-2: Classification

This part of ISO/IEC 11179 provides a conceptual model for managing classification schemes. There are many structures used to organize classification schemes and there are many subject matter areas that classification schemes describe. So, this Part also provides a two-faceted classification for classification schemes themselves.

Edition 3 new project registered 2014-08-19 Link to ISO Project Portal

Rationale for 3rd edition:

ISO/IEC 11179-2:2005 Classification is no longer consistent with ISO/IEC 11179-3:2013, which includes a clause 9.2 Classifications Metamodel Region and Clause 9.1 Concepts Region. Part 2 Edition 3 should address use of Classifications, which is not within the scope of 11179-3:2013. Two options were discussed for part 2: Withdraw or Split. The published standards make no reference to editions, so withdrawing Part 2 could cause existing customers confusion or problems with compliance. The WG feels that a split to produce Part 2 Edition 3 WD to harmonize with Part 3 Edition 3 is needed, adding more explanation for creating and using Classifications, and adding references in the Bibliography to existing work on classifications. This part should refer to content already covered in 11179-3:2013, not repeat it. The WG reserves the option to change this part to a TR after the WD is developed. The rationale for leaving this part in 11179 versus adding to TR 19583 is that existing users of 11179 expect to find information related to Classifications in 11179, not somewhere else.

11179-4: Formulation of data definitions

This part of ISO/IEC 11179 provides guidance on how to develop unambiguous data definitions. A number of specific rules and guidelines are presented in ISO/IEC 11179-4 that specify exactly how a data definition should be formed. A precise, well-formed definition is one of the most critical requirements for shared understanding of an administered item; well-formed definitions are imperative for the exchange of information. Only if every user has a common and exact understanding of the data item can it be exchanged trouble-free.

11179-5: Naming and identification principles

This part of ISO/IEC 11179 provides guidance for the identification of administered items. Identification is a broad term for designating, or identifying, a particular data item. Identification can be accomplished in various ways, depending upon the use of the identifier. Identification includes the assignment of numerical identifiers that have no inherent meanings to humans; icons (graphic symbols to which meaning has been assigned); and names with embedded meaning, usually for human understanding, that are associated with the data item's definition and value domain.

This part of ISO/IEC 11179 provides instruction on how a registration applicant may register a data item with a central Registration Authority and the allocation of unique identifiers for each data item. Maintenance of administered items already registered is also specified in this document.
