International S2000M Provisioning Working Group (PWG) are hosted at TD-Info offices

The International S2000M Provisioning Working Group (PWG) appreciated holding a recent meeting of international representatives at the Team Defence Information offices.

The S2000M international specification defines the processes, procedures and provides the information for data exchange to be used for material management throughout the lifecycle of a product.  The specification S2000M consists of six chapters:

1 – Provisioning
2 – Spare Parts List
3 – Material Supply
4 – Communication Techniques
5 – Data Dictionary
6 – Definitions, Abbreviations and Reference Documents

Provisioning is the process of selecting support items and spares, necessary for the support of all categories of products. This chapter defines the process and specifies the data, formats and transmission procedures to be used in providing provisioning information to the customer. It also provides data from which Illustrated Parts Data (IPD) can be produced. The rules for the production and presentation of the IPD in different media are covered by the specification S1000D. IPD is identical to Illustrated Parts Catalogue (IPC).

Sub-divisions cover: Provisioning General, Initial Provisioning List (IPL), Observations, Codification and Structure for Data Exchange
