The S Series Integrated Logistics Support Specifications is a suite of specifications for product support that will provide the seamless passage of technical data (logistics, provisioning, technical publications/IETMs, scheduled maintenance and maintenance data feedback).  The S Series suite is a joint project between the Aerospace Industries Association, Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe and the ATA e Business Program (on S1000D).

The S Series suite is comprised of the following:

  • SX000i  International guide for the use of the S-Series Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) specifications
  • S1000D  International specification for technical publications using a common source database
  • S2000M International specification for materiel management – Integrated data processing
  • S3000L   International specification for Logistics Support Analysis  – LSA
  • S4000P  International specification for developing and continuously improving preventive maintenance
  • S5000F  International specification for in-service data feedback
  • S6000T International procedure specification for Training/TNA

Below is a graphical overview of the ILS business process and the S Series.
