Whenever a group of authors collaboratively edits interrelated documents semantic consistency is a major goal. Current document management systems (DMS) lack adequate consistency management facilities. We propose liberal use of formal consistency rules which permits inconsistencies. In this paper we focus on deriving repairs for inconsistencies. Our major(More)
When a group of authors collaboratively edits interrelated documents, consistency problems occur almost immediately. Current document management systems (DMS) provide useful mechanisms such as document locking and version control, but often lack consistency management facilities.If at all, consistency is "defined" via informal guidelines, which do not(More)
Over the last decades, the amount of digital documents has increased exponentially. Nevertheless, traditional document engineering methods are applied. Even worse, the long-term preservation issues have been neglected in standard document life cycle implementations.Our digital (cultural) heritage is, therefore, highly endangered by the silent obsolescence(More)
When a group of authors collaboratively edits interrelated documents, consistency problems occur almost immediately. Current document management systems (DMS) often lack adequate facilities for consistency management. We extend traditional DMS by explicit formal consistency rules. In contrast to many other approaches, we permit inconsistencies and present(More)
Ein grosser Teil des aktuellen Kulturgutes entsteht in Form digitaler Dokumente. Die langfristige, verfälschungsfreie Erhaltung und Wiedergabe digitaler Dokumente ist ein noch nicht befriedigend gelöstes Informatik-Problem. Wir beschreiben den Kontext und Aspekte dieser Aufgabe mit den sich daraus ergebenden Anforderungen und skizzieren einige aktuell(More)
Quality management is one of the essential parts to become a trustworthy digital archive. The German network of expertise in Digital long-term preservation (nestor), in cooperation with the German Institute for Standards (DIN) has undertaken a small study in order to systematically analyse the relevance und usage of quality management standards for(More)
The number of digital objects (and digital collections) will increase rapidly within the next years since mass digitisation activities have started all over the world. Although it is obvious that these objects are of enormous scientific and cultural value, some crucial aspects of ensuring their long-term preservation and access to them have so far not been(More)
