Service Inventory Blueprint

When carrying out the service-oriented analysis process repeatedly for a set of related business processes or for a particular business domain within an organization, a collection of service candidates is produced. While still in the conceptual stage, these services comprise a blueprint of a service inventory that can be further analyzed and refined as necessary before committing to the actual creation of a physical service inventory.

This specification is referred to as a service inventory blueprint and it is the primary target deliverable of repeated iterations through the service-oriented analysis process as part of the overarching service inventory analysis (as explained in the Mainstream SOA Methodology).
