Component identification system (Rev. 1, May 1996)
The document outlines the main requirements for development of flexible system for component identification. This system shall be used for identification of components by several users (Companies) and give full access to information pertaining to all components registered in the system. Identification of components from existing material coding systems can be done by using the manufacturer's model type and/or part number and technical specification.
The system shall provide for co-ordination, standardisation and limit variations in relation to common technical specifications using international, national or industry standards.
The purpose of the standard is to make it possible to retrieve component and spares within its technical information by searching on standardised and logical relation of information.
