UDEF Concepts Defined - Reference Guide

Authored by Roberta L Shauger
Authored with Ronald L Schuldt

This book will provide the reader with a reference guide of the Universal Data Element Framework (UDEF) Concept definitions.

Using the UDEF for data integration is a truly universal solution, a solution that is "one size fits all". The approach is based on an open standard. When using the UDEF for indexing enterprise data, it is analogous to using the Dewey Decimal System for indexing books in a library. In the same way a card catalog and Dewey Decimal System index books enabling a person to find a book in the library, the UDEF provides a standard for indexing data within the enterprise.

Many have requested a handy guide book of UDEF Concept definitions to assist in efficiently indexing the data. This book fulfills that need. It provides an easy access to concepts, definitions and formats. A solid understanding of UDEF concept definitions is essential when mapping and implementing the UDEF.

This dictionary of UDEF Object Class concepts and UDEF Property concepts includes the UDEF Names, the UDEF Identifiers and associated definitions to select the most appropriate UDEF Concepts as the building blocks for enterprise data integration. The UDEF Concept definitions are sequenced alphabetically to simplify the concept discovery and concept selection analysis. The Bold font highlights the UDEF Name for each UDEF Concept. An excerpt from this book illustrates the content for UDEF Concepts:

Amount Rent UDEF ID: 9.1 Rent Amount A monetary amount that indicates the price paid for use of a given property that is owned by another entity.

Amount Salary UDEF ID: 14.1 Salary Amount A monetary amount associated with a person's wages.

The book also provides definitions of basic concepts that are the foundation for the UDEF. Basic concepts from ISO/IEC 11179 include Data Element Concept, Object Class term and Property term.
