This part of International Standard 82045 specifies principles and methods to define metadata for the management of documents associated with objects throughout their life cycle; This cycle generally covers a range from the conceptual idea of a document to its deletion. The established principles and methods are basic for all document management systems.
This part is intended as a general basic standard in all application fields and provides the framework applicable for part 2.
International Standard 82045 is primarily intended as a resource for the use in computerised systems such as Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) or Product Data Management Systems (PDMS) for the management, retrieval, storage and selection and archiving of documents, and as a basis for the exchange of documents.
NOTE – Part 2 of International Standard 82045 provides the collection of data element types associated with an
information reference model, which may be used in conjunction with the presentation of metadata on documents.
