Welcome to the development platform for the next generation of DDI

The DDI Alliance is building a new model-based specification, for more information on the background to this see, the process and what we hope to achieve see the DDI Alliance website at

A site to hold discussions and further ongoing discussion is at


The prescriptive description of a business process is really the specification of the process itself – what in GSIM terms is the ProcessStepDesign. We will use this terminology as being more intuitive than the word “prescriptive”.







Integrates with SimpleProcess to facilitate the specification of a chain of process steps that occurred in the past (provenance). The overall approach is to have for each ProcessStep at most a single HistoricalProcessStep whose inputs, outputs, service and binding at the time of execution can be captured and described.
