Key deliverables include XML schema development and maintenance, maintenance of implementation guidelines, usage guidelines,analysis, and recommendation for adoption of new TRP protocols, and liaison with other groups with regard to emerging technologies relevant to PIDX.
WG02: Business Processes Work Group (BPWG)
The PIDX Business Processes Work Group (BPWG) analyzes issues related to targeted documents and recommends solutions to address the most common buyer and supplier issues. BPWG facilitates new standards for ebusiness within the Oil and Gas by analyzing which aspects of Procure to Pay (P2P) and order fulfillment require business process guidelines. The Work Group also defines the process to document business process guidelines, solutions and business process guidelines, and determines whether current documents require modifications or additional documents are needed.

WG03: Catalog and Classification Work Group
The Catalog and Classification Work Group enables high-quality, standardized items and service descriptors to be used across the industry, reducing cost and risk associated with exchange of these terms. Drawing from expertise from all parts of the Oil and Gas industry, the Work Group developed and maintains the Petroleum Industry Data Dictionary (PIDD). This structured dictionary describes products and services – from upstream, downstream, operator, oilfield services, and suppliers – and it is open to all to access royalty free. The PIDX Catalog and Classification Work Group also maintains the Petroleum Industry Glossary, a collection of terms used throughout the Oil and Gas industry.
VICE CHAIR: Jessica De La Garza, Schlumberger
