SDFx Builder

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

  • Improved Visibility
    Increased B2B order success rate as items will be easier to find for requisitioners and procurement staff

  • Easy sharing and distribution of product specifications
    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
    The eOTD provides translation of terms in multiple languages, which can be used to render specifications in a preferred language

  • Regulatory compliance
    Be able to supply ISO 8000 quality product data when requested
