In order to support this development, syntactic (related to the formal structure) and semantic (related to the content) validation is needed, which allows the improvement of the quality of the planning data. As such, suitable data formats, which enable both of these aspects of quality vetting, are required. Flexible definitions of validation rules based on expert knowledge allow a variety of tests to be carried out....
