RosettaNet dictionaries provide a common set of properties for PIPs:
- RosettaNet Business Dictionary: designates the properties used in basic business activities. It defines the Business Properties, Business Data Entities and, Fundamental Business Data, Entities in PIP Messages.
- RosettaNet Technical Dictionary (RNTD): provide properties for defining products. This dictionary, coupled with the RosettaNet Business Dictionary, provides a common vocabulary for conducting e-business, eliminating confusion in the procurement process due to companies' uniquely defined terminology. The RNTD eliminates the need for partners to utilize separate dictionaries when implementing multiple PIPs and is no longer be supply chain-specific, allowing it to be used in a variety of supply chain applications.

This book covers both issues. Managers at all levels of all organizations must be aware of both the changes that we are now seeing and ways to deal with issues created by those changes.
