A data module is defined as ‘a self contained unit of data. It is an XML specification for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information. It is this feature together with the modular approach to data creation and storage that makes the specification so acceptable to the wider international community ASD Specification M SM is a standard that specifies the information exchange requirements for most materiel management functions commonly performed in supporting international projects.

ASD S1000D

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. S100d 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.

Items of information, which are repeated in different contexts, for example, warnings, opening aecmx closing procedures, can be stored once as a single data module and can be used many times in different contexts. 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 format.


Adopting SD has numerous benefits and advantages. SD requires a document to be broken down into individual data items called Data Modules which can be marked with individual XML labels and metadata, and be part of a hierarchical XML structure. SD incorporates a methodology for storing s0100d in electronic form and provides the capability to output information both in electronic and paper format.

The DTD and Schemas have a modular form. 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 user’s needs.

Views Read Edit View history. The standard originated with the European Association of Aerospace Industries AECMAwhich represents the aerospace industry in the fifteen Aecmq Union s1000e in matters of common interest-technical, financial, legal, and economic.

Customised solutions based on your needs

SGML and XML are system and platform independent data formats, thus enabling interchange of technical information across software applications. SD is the global standard for technical publications in the aerospace and defence industries.

Data modules have two sections: SD lets you reuse your content efficiently through single source publishing, manage information easily, find information swiftly, and publish in several formats. A data module is defined as “a self-contained unit of data”.

This provides considerable savings in data maintenance and enhances data configuration control. The purpose secma storing discrete chunks of information in the database is to promote reuse of the information in as many different technical documents as possible. Using a common data set, SM defines business rules to be followed at various stages of the materiel management process and provides various sets of standard messages that are to be used by business partners to exchange information in an unambiguous way.


Where possible, we will use modular solutions. Individual data modules are identified by a logical and specific numbering system, the Data Module Code DMCwhich permits the use of a database to store and manage the complete information set.

There is an interface specification with SL Issue 1. SD can be downloaded for free at its official project website.

The modular concept assists in the generation and simplification of electronic commenting procedures by its ability to aevma identify relevant information at the lowest level possible.

A data module is a self-contained unit of information, such as a couple of paragraphs, a figure, or a table. Shufrans TechDocs can help customers to work according to the standard by providing training, consultancy and system integration services as well as the appropriate software tools.

Information is stored in the CSDB in small chunks, called data modules.

Shufrans TechDocs can help you with the implementation of processes and software to comply with the SM standard and make optimum use of it. This provides considerable savings in data maintenance and enhances data configuration control. The full list can be viewed at the SD website.
