Methods and Tools for efficient Design of Electronical Product Catalogues

The goal of this project is to develop methods and tools to support the hole life cycle of electronical product catalogues (EPCs). Beginning with a comprehensive analysis of important existing electronical catalogues, continuing with the definition of a specification language for EPCs, the development of tools to support the requirement analysis, the design of the EPCs, the realization of far-reaching services and an extensive automatic testing.

As part of this project the specification language EPKML was defined. It allows a declarative description of electronical product catalogues.
