eSCB ECCMA Smart Catalog Builder

Increasingly, large buyers and government agencies are making standardized quality part numbers and standardized product specifications mandatory.

The SmartCatalog Builder is a free-to-use tool, which converts existing product specifications to interoperable data format (.idf). A SmartCatalog file provides portable, machine-readable data as it is based on the open ISO 8000-114 format, and so makes your product specification ISO 8000 compliant.

Creating a SmartCatalog requires the inclusion of a SmartPrefix, before the part number.
