In the past different models were defined to represent the life cycle of B2B standards. Starting from there, this work defines a new standards life cycle model aiming to point out the aspects related to the production of Use Profiles and the execution of Conformance and Interoperability Testing. Indeed, at present more than in the past, they are going to play a relevant role in the B2B interoperability standards life cycle, especially when the target domains are characterised by a fragmentation of the actors in place.
Then some critical factors that could hamper the adoption (thus the success) of a B2B interoperability standard specification are detected and analyzed in order to extract qualitative suggestions and define performance indicators.
