~ Information Delivery Manual
When a party provides information to another project partners, it is often questionable whether this information is complete and whether the receiving party now has the correct information to be able to do their work properly.
That is why receiving and sending parties should/could agree in advance what information they will send to each other. This way the sending party knows when the dataset is complete and ready to be sent, and the receiving party is able to check against a predefined set of requirements, so validate if everything has been received before continuing processing.
Despite the growing market demand, developments around IDM are tedious. IDM is primarily designed as a technical standard in which processes can be sent out streamlined. Due to the lack of suitable software tools and solutions concerning IDM, the concept of ‘idm’ has recently degenerated into the writing of a text document that holds proposed agreements.
