We will now build up a schedule definition introducing the concepts as discussed.

Starting with the base pool of reusable building blocks – dependencies can be added. The building blocks are also expanded to define what is in them (though these are secondary events).


Each of these building blocks could be expanded thus:

However in many cases there could be different dependencies for (say) different types of instruments. One solution would be to hard wire this for all the different applicabilities (e.g. instrument, market, time) so have separate schedule for swaps, bonds etc – but would lead to a lot of schedules…..

So to make a single generic definition to work in all cases applicability can be defined. This definition can be expanded as new product come along.

What we have here is a single schedule with generic applicability that can work for all combinations of (in this case)  instrument, market and time. 

So we have covered the schedule, which provides the skeleton of our STP, lets move on to looking at parts of the STP that actually “do things”….
