Taming the Complexities of a Multi-spec Content Ecosystem
How Airlines Can Control Costs and Speed the Delivery of High-quality Information
Led by Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350, the introduction of new-generation aircraft requires airlines to create, manage, and deliver technical information using the S1000D information exchange standard. Meeting S1000D requirements while simultaneously supporting the existing ATA iSpec 2200 creates a number of challenges for airlines as they transition from older fleets to new-generation aircraft.
This white paper discusses the origin of S1000D, challenges of maintaining multiple content platforms, and options airlines have to manage multiple specifications in their overall content ecosystem. This white paper also identifies an emerging approach that can help airlines meet the demands for aging aircraft based on ATA iSpec 2200 and new-generation aircraft that require S1000D while speeding the delivery of high-quality technical information and controlling overall costs.
