ASD S1000D

ASD S1000D is a free to download international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications. It started out as a European specification and was originally known as European Association of Aerospace Industries (AECMA) but it is currently maintained by the S1000D Steering Committee, which includes:

The Steering Committee also includes national industry and defence representatives from most of the countries currently using the specification.

The specification requires information to be created as an individual data item, called a Data Module (DM), using SGML or XML and each DM contains both technical information and metadata. Individual DM’s and any associated content (illustrations, multimedia, training packages etc) are stored and maintained in a Common Source Database (CSDB). The CSDB usually provides work-flow task management and DM version control.
