The entire business supply chain domains for which PIPs are specified are divided into many clusters. Each cluster is further sub-divided into segments. Each segment consists of several PIPs.
PIPs include specification of partner business roles such as buyer, seller and so on, activities conducted between the roles and type, content, and sequence of documents exchanged by the roles while performing these activities. Also specified are the time, security, and authentication of these interactions. The structure and content of the documents exchanged is based on the business dictionary and technical dictionary. The PIP is a compilation of this message type information into document type definitions (DTDs) and message guidelines.
Trading partners exchange documents that match the DTDs by using network protocols specified by RNIF.
