S1000D: Defined, Explained, and Explored

What is S1000D?

S1000D is the European standard of technical publications or technical documentation being followed in Aerospace since 1980, which uses CSDB, a Common source database which is used for preparing, managing, and publishing technical information for a warship, or Aerospace, or even Civil airlines too.

The first release of the Specification was in 1989 and in August 2019 the latest 5 Issue was release

 An airplane or ship is built with thousands of components, sub-components and navigation equipment, and many more. Hence, these components are supplied by many OEMs (Original equipment manufacturers). OEMs make the documents to their own standards. Each document and format is entirely different because all OEMs don’t maintain similar standards. At that point, the Technical Publications Specification Maintenance Group (TPSMG) was formed. They proposed a DM-based (Data Module) Based structure. TO manage these Data modules CSDB was maintained. (Database). Data Module is the standalone section of the document. For example, let’s assume that one data module is prepared on Operation of GPS and stored in CSDB, then whenever GPS operations are to be reproduced for different aircraft or different systems, simply that Data module can be copied and plugged.

In short, re-usability and the format used is XML, and tags are defined by the S1000D steering committee.

S1000D Basic Principle

  • Content or data  produced following the standard is in Data Module
  • This  data module is the smallest and  self-contained content or data  unit within a technical publication
  • A data module must have sense and meaning when viewed without any supporting data other than images and diagrams
  • These  data modules will be  stored and managed in CSDB, Common Source Database.
  • Using this  CSDB  we can publish  output in a page-oriented or .
  • These Individual data modules are re-usable components and can be used repeatedly in an output.

Benefits of S1000D

  • Re-usability of data hence reduces production cost
  • Standardization of data and naming conventions
  • Open source and non-proprietary
  • Good for legacy data conversion
  • Proper documentation and version control management
  • Zero printing cost and zero occupancies of space as no Hard copies are to be maintained. Achieved by reusing instead of recreating information each time it is required
  • Easily to maintain  and distribute:  Facilitates transfer of information and electronic output between systems very easily and conveniently
  • Multiple Vendor support
  • Fastest reference to operator or maintainer than traditional paper-based documents
  • Many different output forms can be generated from a single data source i.e. from CSDB we can generate IETM and also PDF format which can be used for printing if need be
  • Customized Output creation: Allows sub-sets of information to be generated to meet specific user needs and user levels.

Major similarities and differences between JSG 0852 & S1000D 7 COD! Ora

1

1. Needs Raw content to covert to SQL
Database

2. HTML/SGML as source file

3. 1ETM has inbuilt Authoring tool, Content
management tool, User Management and
reporting

4. Works in Standalone and Client server mode

5. IETM has Viewer and Administrator and
Author Modules

6. Content can be edited by OEM without any
tool

7. In short, OEM need not have any software
to deploy IETM

Needs Raw content to covert to XML Database

XML as source file

OEM or the place IETM 1s being deployed must have CSDB
webserver to host the Data Modules/ s1000d XML files to
have user management and content management.

Vendor give 510004 files to OEM. If OEM has CSDB studio
server then [ETP can be hosted in that server. Otherwise,
it plays in standalone machine as a Viewer.

OEM needs $1000d author tool, commercially available off
the shelf software to edit

. OEM must have s1000d CSDB server to deploy s1000d

files. If no CSDB Server is available then $1000d can still
be viewed in Viewer without any Administration tools
