Figure shows an example workflow for resolving data conflicts resulting from frequent update and exchange of data models during one session.

Figure Conflict resolution: frequent exchange in a single session.

The scenario is:

  1. Software A exports H and F in EPC_A.
  2. Software B imports EPC_A, modifies H.
  3. Software B exports EPC_B: F + H*, (where H*=edited H).
  4. When Software A imports EPC_B, it should have enough information to know:
  • F has not been modified, and does not have to be reloaded
  • H* is an edited version of H; there is enough information to let a user decide what to how to reconcile the two versions.
