in the user companies, has up-graded the Draft Dictionary 2005, that has now

Version Moda-ML 2004-1
This is the second operating version of Moda-ML after the first one (2003-1).
This version adds to the previous one, the support to new processes: Yarn Production and Yarn Supplying are now supported with the management of the subcontracting (related to purchase order, despatch and subcontracting order).
Some relevant extensions have been introduced to the already supported processes:
- in Fabric Production, dyeing and finishing subcontracting have been added;
- a new modalty of Fabric supplying has been supported, alternative to the conventional one, with the final despatch of a kit (fabric + accessories) to the subcontractors of the Garment Producer, instead of despatching the fabric to the Garment Producer.
- the Fabric invoice has been modified, to comply with the recommendations of the e-Invoice Focus Group (CEN/ISSS).
The documents of the previous version (2003-1) are validated by the Schema of the present version (the new Schemas add only some optional elements or allow more choices).
The fabric invoice is an exception: it has been completely reorganised and is not compatible with the previous version (the adoption ofthe new format is strongly suggested).
The Schema of the previous version are available on line anyway.
This version of Moda-ML has been developed with the support of Consorzio TQR and of the partners of the technical working group of Moda-ML.
