ASD/AIA S2000M – INTERNATIONAL SPECIFICATION FOR MATERIAL MANAGEMENT
Release of Issue 6.1
DATED 01 MARCH 2017
The S2000M Steering Committee herewith publishes Issue 6.1 of S2000M.
Together with publication of Issue 6.0 in December 2015 the S2000M Steering Committee called for comments through a simplified method. The comments received through this process as well as other minor improvements and corrections have led to this Issue 6.1.
This Issue 6.1, as a continuation of Issue 6.0, forms part of a common, interoperable, international ASD Suite of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) Specifications which is prepared in concert by ASD and AIA. Compared to previous issues of S2000M (i.e. Issue 5.0 and earlier) it contains a number of changes, such as:
- A simplification of the Initial Provisioning process using a common ILS Data Model for the ASD Suite of ILS Specifications.
- A simplification of the Pricing, Order Administration and Invoicing into one Material Supply Process.
- A reduction of the different types of transactions and their content.
- A change of the message structure to XML (eXtensible Markup Language), whereby Chapter 1 uses UML (Unified Modelling Language) in conjunction with XSD (XML Schema Definition) and Chapters 2 and 3 use the XSD (XML Schema Definition) only.
These changes also aim to allow for easier integration of S2000M into widely used ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems.
Requests for Clarification and Change Proposals against this Issue 6.1 can be submitted as per the procedure described in the specification Chapter 0, Introduction.
