It provides for creation of documentation using the principles of modularity and minimalism, supporting the “ability to readily identify relevant information at the lowest level possible.

In addition, it defines a Common Source Data Base CSDB to provide source information for compilation of the publications and for use in electronic logistics information systems to deliver modules of information direct to the user.

Whilst the title restricts its use to technical documentation it has been demonstrated that the principles of the specification can easily be applied to non-technical documentation. Information generated is in neutral format, which means it can be used on disparate IT systems.

It s1000d this feature together with the modular approach to data creation and xecma that makes the specification so acceptable to the wider international community AECMA SD “incorporates a methodology for storing data in electronic form and provides the capability to output information both in electronic and, if required, paper aecmq.

A data module is defined as ‘a self contained unit of data. Data modules have two sections: Each item of information, therefore, carries all its own configuration data The combination of data module code, information types and DM metadata allows a selection of subsets of information to be chosen by query or table of contents designed to meet a specific users needs.


Items of information, which are repeated in different contexts, for example, warnings, opening and closing procedures, can be stored once as a single data module and can be used many times in different contexts. This provides considerable savings in data maintenance and enhances data configuration control.

When change is required only the single DM needs aecms be changed whilst the changed information appears throughout the output, an example of the fundamental CALS philosophy of ‘create once, use many times’ SGML and XML are system and platform independent data formats, thus enabling interchange of technical information across software applications.

This modular design of DTD and Schemas allows for incremental update when new types of data modules are required.

The DTD and Schemas have a modular form. The modular concept assists in the generation and simplification of electronic commenting procedures by its ability to readily identify relevant information at the lowest level possible. Structure charts produced from the analysis of different data module types were included in this phase.

There are no additional charges or royalties required. That has resulted in new documentation being written for every new product, even if the product is likely comprised of many of the same physical components and sub-components used in other products. Fortunately, some of the best minds in the field began working in the s to hammer out a standard that would help facilitate a revolution in the world of technical documentation.

That standard is Specification D SD. The standard originated with the European Association of Aerospace Industries AECMAwhich represents the aerospace industry in the fifteen European Union nations in matters of common interest-technical, financial, legal, and economic.

With its European origin, the standard has naturally penetrated Europe more quickly than the United States Information is stored in the CSDB in small chunks, called data modules.

The purpose of storing discrete chunks of information in the database is to promote reuse of the information in as many different technical documents as possible.

A small to medium project will often consist of 10, or more data s10000d.

A data module is a self-contained unit of information, such as a couple of paragraphs, a figure, or a table. Each module has its own identifier-the data module code DMC -that aids in ensuring that every piece of information placed in the CSDB is unique. The DMC also identifies how the subcomponents being documented relate to larger components that comprise a piece of equipment.

In addition to having a unique name, each data module consists of two parts: This metadata controls the actual use of the information. For example, it identifies the version of the data module as s1000f as the security settings which determine who can make changes to the module Receive daily news updates from Managing Editor, Robin Cover.
