An actual XML hierarchy must be designed specifically for each different knowledge domain. English is the international language of science, 100d and human relations.

Documentation Standards ATA 100/AECMA 1000D

With its European origin, the standard has naturally penetrated Europe more quickly than the United States In aviation, it is mandatory to correctly understand maintenance and operation documentation to make sure that systems operate safely and correctly and to protect human lives.

Issue 7 of the specification fully replaces all previous issues and revisions. That standard is Specification 1000f SD. This page was last edited on 3 Augustat A data module is defined as ‘a self contained unit of data.

This permits the updating of single data items without necessarily changing the path down the XML tree which points to them. Retrieved from ” https: For example, it identifies the version of the data module as well as 1000 security settings which determine who can make changes to the module Today, the success of STE is such that other industries use it beyond its original intended purpose 1000f aerospace maintenance documentation.


Many readers have a limited knowledge of English. The results confirmed that a simplified language was necessary. SD can be downloaded for free at its official project website. This provides considerable savings in data maintenance and enhances data configuration control. It is an XML specification for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information.

SGML and XML are system and platform independent data formats, thus enabling interchange of technical information across software applications.

Fortunately, aecja of the best minds in the field began afcma in the s to hammer out a standard that would help facilitate a revolution in the world of technical documentation. In addition to having a unique name, each data module consists of two parts: These two groups explored the existing controlled languages and researched texts in several maintenance manuals.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Each item of information, therefore, carries all its own configuration data STE was developed to help the readers of English-language documentation understand what they read, particularly when these readers are non-native English speakers.

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.

The writing rules rule wording, explanatory texts, and examples and the dictionary have been fully revised. The modular concept 1000v in the generation and simplification of electronic commenting procedures by its ability to readily identify relevant information at the lowest level possible.

Whilst the title restricts its use to technical documentation it has been demonstrated that the principles of the specification can easily be applied to non-technical documentation. A data module is a self-contained unit of information, such as a couple of paragraphs, a figure, or a table.


However, it is not often the native language of the readers of technical documentation. The specification has since been modified for use with land, sea, and commercial equipment. 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.

When change is required only the single DM needs to be changed whilst the changed information appears throughout the output, an example of the fundamental CALS philosophy of ‘create once, use many times’ Interest in STE has also increased dramatically in the areas of language services, professional translation and interpreting, as well as in the academic world.
