Abstract

The information flow in logistics is covered by a growing set of systems and standards. To handle the increasing heterogeneity, the exchange of information rather than the exchange of data is favored because unlike data information contains a precise meaning. This precise meaning would reduce the false interpretation between stakeholders within information flows. The exchange of information on the system level requires the application of transformations on the communication interface levels. In this paper, a corresponding transformation and communication approach is presented. Finally, the impact of the conceptual approach is shown on a hypothetical application scenario.
