This document provides guidance on how to develop an information delivery manual (IDM) in compliance with EN ISO 29481-1 hereafter referred to as the “IDM standard”. This document explains the core components and development process of the IDM methodology in non-technical terms. This document aims to help users and software vendors understand and utilize the IDM standard in defining information requirements and deliverables.
The technical implementation of IDM in a data model, model view definition (MVD), is excluded from this document’s scope. IDM standard introduces the MVD concept but does not specify it in detail.
This document also utilizes some transaction framework concepts introduced in EN ISO 29481-2. The technical XML- and XSD-schema definitions supporting the software solutions are excluded from this document.
