International specification for material management
The specification S2000M defines the processes, procedures and provides the information for data exchange to be used for material management throughout the lifecycle of a Product.
The specification standardizes the business relationship between two or more parties (eg, contractor and customer) by providing a well-defined process flow and associated relevant transactions for data exchange.
The specification S2000M consists of seven chapters, which are further described below:
S2000M Guide development history
1981 – The ASD (former AECMA) supply working group was founded.
Provisioning is the process of selecting support items and spares, necessary for the support of all categories of Products. This chapter defines the process and specifies the data, formats and transmission procedures to be used in providing provisioning information to the customer throughout the various phases of the lifecycle of the Product. It also provides the database from which Illustrated Parts Catalogues (IPC) can be produced. The rules for the production and presentation of the IPC in different media are covered by the specification S1000D. IPC is identical to Illustrated Parts Data Publication (IPDP).
Chapter 1-1 Provisioning General; covers the presentation of a baseline for a Product, the presentation of its data as well as the update of that presentation.
Chapter 1-2 Observations; defines the exchange of information between customer and contractor, or vice versa, during the Provisioning Process; they are typically based on review by either party of the Provisioning Data or updates thereof.
Chapter 1-3 Codification; covers the NATO codification processes and information flows between industry, the National Codification Bureaux (NCB) and the customer for all activities related to codification. However, S2000M can be applied without using NATO codification.
The spare parts list allows the customer and contractor to process parts data (including commercial data) to allow for the processes as described in Chap 3 of this specification, without the necessity to use processes as described in Chap 1 of this specification.
Chapter 3-1 Material supply general; provides processes, procedures and techniques for pricing, order administration, transportation and invoicing.
Pricing supports the alternatives of the establishment of direct binding prices as well as the involvement of a price approval authority. Pricing also supports mutual supply support.
Order administration provides processes, procedures and techniques for placement of orders, order progression and delivery of ordered items. It also supports the administration of orders for services eg, repair.
Transportation provides processes, procedures and techniques for generating and forwarding transport related information.
Invoicing provides processes, procedures and techniques for generating and forwarding invoices as well as for the invoice acceptance or invoice rejection.
Chapter 3-2 Material supply data exchange; provides processes, procedures and techniques for placement of orders, order progression and delivery of ordered items. It supports the administration of orders for items as well as for services, eg repair. This chapter also provides processes, procedures and techniques for generating and forwarding transport related information and also provides processes, procedures and techniques for generating and forwarding invoices as well as for the invoice acceptance or invoice rejection.
Chapter 3-3 Performance Based Logistics (PBL); describes the concept of Performance Based Logistics and its contractual framework. Furthermore, a description of the usage of existing messages, data elements and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can be used to create an individual PBL contract is given.
The purpose of this chapter is to describe the standards which exist for the exchange of information in accordance with S2000M procedures.
The purpose of this chapter is to describe the UML models and the resulting XML schema.
The data dictionary is a catalogue of all the data elements utilized by S2000M. Its purpose is to identify the standardized names, definitions and attributes to ensure a common understanding and application of the data elements.
The glossary of terms and definitions is a catalogue of all the terms utilized in S2000M Chap 1 through Chap 6. Its purpose is to identify the terms and explain their definitions to ensure a common understanding of S2000M.
