eCl@ss 10.1

eCl@ss 10.1

You purchase a license for eCl@ss Release 10.1 all available languages and all export formats: BASIC (csv and XML) and ADVANCED (XML).

Most of the language versions are partly translated;  the rest filled with the English original.

The eCl@ss Minor Release 10.1 is an enhancement and modification of the eCl@ss Major Release 10.0.1. With Release 7.0 an improved structure according to the underlying ISO13584 data model and an ISO-standard XML format (OntoML) was introduced.

Starting with eCl@ss Release 7.0, there are two different versions of eCl@ss which contain the same classes, but differ in the product description on the basis of properties and values:

  • BASIC (in .csv or .XML format). The BASIC version contains only the content that could be represented in a .csv format that was the exclusively used export format before 7.0. Therefore, it does not contain property block structures nor dynamic elements as in the ADVANCED version. BASIC does contain all classes of the ADVANCED, but the product description with the help of properties and values is structured a lot easier. BASIC is therefore a subset of ADVANCED.
  • ADVANCED (only in .XML format). The ADVANCED version is the leading version in the database and built on the basis of the data model ISO13584. It contains all structural elements of the eCl@ss classification system including property blocks, dynamic elements such as reference properties, polymorphism and cardinality blocks. The description of these extended structural components as well as additional meaningful information can be found here: http://wiki.eclass.eu/wiki/Advanced.
    Each classification class refers to both an ADVANCED and a BASIC application class that contains the product description with the help of properties and values. The ADVANCED version contains the complete content of eCl@ss and is therefore an extension of the BASIC version.
    Under http://wiki.eclass.eu/wiki/Advanced#Functionality_matrix you may find an overview (matrix of functionalities) which makes it possible for you to compare the two versions (BASIC and ADVANCED) and their possibilities. A provided reference table (XML File: Mapping BASIC_ADVANCED) enables users of the ADVANCED version to exchange technical data with users of the BASIC version. Hereby, the necessary know-how has to be delivered by the user of the ADVANCED version.

eCl@ss 10.1 comprises in comparison to Release 10.0.1:

  • ca. 600 new classes
  • ca. 2,100 new properties
  • ca. 330 new keywords
  • ca. 1,400 new values
  • more than 66,800 new class-property-relations

All available downloads at the eCl@ss DownloadPortal generally contain a complete eCl@ss version in csv format or XML format (for initial implementation). For information on the data structure, please refer to the enclosed README file.

These changes of the content are based on the following measures:

  • Initial filling of segment 50 "Interior furnishing" on Classification-Class- and Property-Level
  • Substantial content development in segment 22 "Construction technology"
  • Extension of segment 16 "food, beverage, tobacco" regarding the entirety of LMIV-relevant properties
  • Content development as well as submission of extensive French translations on Classification-Class level for segment 34 "Medical Device"
  • Substantial content development in segment 27 "Electric engineering, automation, process control engineering" as well as ongoing harmonization between ETIM and eCl@ss
  • Substantial content development in segment 29 "Home economics, Home technology" as well as ongoing harmonization between the PI-Standard and eCl@ss regarding household appliances
  • Ongoing harmonization between PROLIST and eCl@ss in segment 27 "Electric engineering, automation, process control engineering" and segment 37 "Industrial piping"
  • Ongoing content development in particular in the following segments:
    • 19 "Information, communication and media technology"
    • 21 "Manufacturing facility, workshop equipment, tool"
    • 24 "Office product, facility and technic, papeterie"
    • 25 "General service"

 Content eCl@ss 10.1 BASIC (csv):

  • Classes file (complete)
  • Properties file (complete)
  • Keywords and Synonyms file
  • Values file (complete)
  • Unit file (complete)
  • Class-Property relations file
  • Value lists (restricted Property-Value relations file, only BOOLEAN properties)
  • Proposal lists (suggested Class-Property-Value relations file incl. constraints)
  • README file eCl@ss standard

Content eCl@ss 10.1 BASIC (XML) or ADVANCED (XML):

  • Dictionaries: include 39 XML files, hence for each segment one XML file that contains the complete content of the relevant segment (Classes, Keywords, Properties, Synonyms, Values, Value Lists, Units and all relations) (complete)
  • Templates: Since Release 10.0.1, the "Templates" folder already known from previous Releases does not contain any content. The reason for this is the future handling with templates to deliver and publish only "default" templates with substantial content. This may change for future Releases.
    Templates contain a Data Requirement Statement for the data exchange, in which can be defined e.g. sequences or optional and mandatory fields between the data transmitter and the receiver. More information in the eCl@ss Wiki: http://wiki.eclass.eu/wiki/Templates
  • eCl@ss units ("UnitsML" in XML format)
  • Only ADVANCED: Additionally for the ADVANCED user the mapping file BASIC - ADVANCED is included
  • README file
