Special Notes:

In addition to basic data items, different order types have different purposes and different data contents.  UML class diagrams are used to model data elements common to all order types, elements that are specific for each order type, and relationships between the data elements.  The lists of data elements above and on the diagrams is not exhaustive.  Implementation Guidelines contain technology-specific details of data requirements.

Some information on how the data elements are used are described in Typical Back-end Processing - Buyer and Typical Back-end Processing - Seller.
