ISO 8000 product specifications

Adopting standard catalog like FSC (Federal Supply Classification) or ISO 22745 has proven benefits in inventory reduction and increase asset visibility across a large enterprise.  ISO 22745 specification is a digital version of a technical specification which has been formatted in XML in accordance with ISO standard 22745-40 and encoded using the ISO 8000 Open Technical Dictionary. 
In an eSTS, all the names of characteristics used to describe a product or a service are converted to OTD numbers, which in turn are linked to the terminology (words and definitions) in the OTD. That is a fundamental principle of ISO 8000 quality data.
If you are looking at a specification on a website, you may notice that when you hover over a characteristic name or a coded value in a specification, the definition pops up in a box. This is an example of ISO 8000 quality data, where everything is explicit: All words and codes are defined in a dictionary that is linked to the specification. From a technical point of view, publishing an ISO 8000 quality technical specification on a website is very straightforward, and it is rapidly becoming best practice. See for a good example.
We provide cataloging services to help you create standardized technical specifications which are NATO or ISO 22745 compliant.
