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’ Knowledge so partitioned and classified can therefore be shared among many publications, and updating of items in the underlying SD XML document 100d automatically affect updating of the dependent publications.
The DTD and Schemas have a modular form.
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. This metadata controls the actual use of the information. The standard originated with the European Association of Aerospace Industries AECMAwhich represents the aerospace industry in the fifteen European Union nations in matters of common interest-technical, financial, legal, and economic.
It is an XML specification for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information.
The DMC also identifies how the subcomponents being documented relate to larger components that comprise a piece of equipment. Each module has its own identifier-the data module code DMC -that aids in ensuring that every piece of information placed in the CSDB is unique.
The specification is free to download and use, although it is recommended that advice be sought on the best methods for implementing an SD aecam. This modular design of DTD and Schemas allows for incremental update when new types of data modules are required.
In addition to having a unique name, each data module consists of two parts: Interest in STE has also increased dramatically in the areas of language services, professional translation and interpreting, as well as in the academic world.
List of document markup languages. Each item of information, therefore, carries all its own configuration data Receive daily news updates from Managing Editor, Robin Cover. That has resulted in new documentation being written for every new product, even if the product is likely comprised of many of aecam same physical components and sub-components used in other products.
It is this feature together with the modular approach to data creation and storage that makes the specification so acceptable to the wider international community The combination of data module code, information types and DM metadata allows a selection of subsets of information to be chosen by query or table of contents designed to meet a specific users needs.
Information is stored in the CSDB in small chunks, called data modules. This page was last edited on 3 Augustat These two groups explored the existing controlled languages and researched texts in several maintenance manuals. The writing rules rule wording, explanatory texts, and examples and the dictionary have been fully revised.
Data modules have two sections: A data module is a self-contained unit of information, such as a couple of paragraphs, a figure, or a table. Structure charts produced from the analysis of different data module types were included in this aemca.
An actual XML hierarchy must be designed specifically for each different knowledge domain. STE was developed to help the readers of English-language documentation understand what they read, particularly when these readers are non-native English adcma.
SD is an international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications. It is also the language of the aerospace and defense industry. Issue 7 of the specification fully replaces all previous issues and revisions.

There is an interface specification with SL Issue 1. A data module is defined as ‘a self contained unit of data.
With its European origin, the standard has naturally penetrated Europe more quickly than the United States From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This permits the updating of single aecna items without necessarily changing the path down the XML tree which points to them. A small to medium project will often consist of 10, or more data modules. The results confirmed that a simplified language was necessary. SGML and XML are system and platform independent data formats, thus enabling interchange of technical information across software applications.

SD can be downloaded for free at its official project website. Information generated is in neutral format, which means it can be used on disparate IT systems. The specification has since been modified for use with land, sea, and commercial equipment. In addition, it defines a Common Source Data Base CSDB to provide source information for compilation of the publications and for use in electronic logistics information systems to deliver modules of information direct to the user.
Views Read Edit View history. That standard is Specification D SD. 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 modular concept assists in the generation and simplification of electronic commenting procedures by its ability to readily identify relevant information at the lowest level possible.
English is the international language of science, technology and human relations.
