Increasingly, large buyers and government agencies are making standardized quality part numbers and standardized product specifications mandatory. ISO 8000-115 is the international standard for standardized part numbers.
The SDFx Builder is a free to use tool, which converts existing product specifications to a structured data format in XML (SDFx). An SDFx file provides portable, machine-readable data as it is based on the open ISO 22745-40 format.
Creating an SDFx requires the inclusion of a SmartPrefix, before the part number. The purpose of the SmartPrefix is to identify the organization that owns the part number, in accordance with ISO 8000-115.
Benefits of an SDFx

Once uploaded to the ECCMA Shared Material Master (eSMM), ISO 8000 quality descriptions can be shared from one central repository with buyers
Specifications available in multiple languages
