A new Strategic Standardization Forum for Aerospace (SSFA) video demonstrates the value of providing standards as digital data. Standards content is typically provided in a paper or PDF document. The SSFA is discussing ways that standards developers supporting the aerospace and defense industry can provide standards content in a digital format. The video shows how one manufacturer has converted their internal company standards into a format that can be used and read by downstream applications. The process offers improvements in data quality, interoperability, and reduced costs.
An SSFA teleconference planned in the next few months will discuss how other aerospace manufacturers are using standards content and the possibility of standardizing content delivery in a digital format. If you are interested in participating in the SSFA teleconference, please contact Chris Carnahan at chris.carnahan[at]aia-aerospace.org.
AIA would like to thank The Boeing Company for their work to produce the video.
