S-Series of ILS specifications
Both Specifications describe the flow of communication between the business partners, the content of the information to be exchanged, and the structure and format of the messages exchanged in every step of the process:. You set up and adjust the following application components accordingly to implement the specifications:. The end user enters purchase and sales order data in connection with the spares procurement process. Manual intervention is required only if an error occurs. Select the role that best describes your tasks and functions in the company, and read the parts of the documentation that are relevant to that role.
The S-Series of ILS specifications is a common denominator for a set of specifications associated to different integrated logistics support aspects. Transversal specifications are encoded with an "X" instead of a number, so as to represent the "10" used in Roman numerals. The initial "S" stands for specification, and the last letter indicates a keyword within the title, as highlighted in the list above. Exceptions to this rule are SD where the "D" stands for documentation and the specifications ending in "X", which represents "E x change". Though all letters are upper case, SXi has a lower case ending letter for improved readability and to prevent confusion with an "l" in certain fonts. The S-Series of ILS specifications have in the past years made a significant effort to be interoperable, as this was not always necessarily true in the past. In that context, SXi defines the common ILS process to which all the specifications will adhere, and SXD defines a common data model that binds the data models of the different specifications together.
