The TimePeriodParser supports a couple of more formats than the one mentioned above. Please refer to the tests and to the code to find further formats.

However, a general issue with time period parsing is ambiguity as described e.g. in #6561#note-6 . There are a couple of such issues, e.g. American Dates etc.
So one possibility to solve this issue is to write more specific methods either in the general TimePeriodParser class or in a separate class and define in the CdmPreferences or elsewhere which method to use. One could also use a method with a given format parameter to use which is the standard for most date and date-time parsers.
