This page is the all-in-one resource to reformat your technical specifications to be ISO 8000 compliant. The services and tools offered do not involve changing or limiting your existing technical specifications in any way or form, but only converts them from a syntax version to an XML version.
This makes your technical specification :
Exchangeable without loss of meaning
ISO 8000 part 115 is the international standard for standardized part numbers. The standard requires the addition of a prefix before the part number that identifies the owner of the part number.
QUIP (Quality Identifier Prefix)
A QUIP (Quality Identifier Prefix) is a unique name or alpha-numeric character string that is used to identify products, parts and services. A QUIP is a commercial prefix, which allows you to use your brand or organisation name as the prefix, thus providing instant recognition.
NCAGE (NATO Commercial and Government Entity)
An NCAGE is a free prefix issued by the NATO AC/135 cataloging community, which is a random alpha-numeric string.
To be ISO 8000 compliant, your product’s technical specifications need to be converted into an XML format that is both portable and machine-readable. The SDFx Builder is a web-based application that reformats your existing technical specifications to ISO 8000 compliant specifications. It achieves this by providing customizable templates where you enter your existing product specifications in a standard form. The class and properties of your specifications are linked to the eOTD (ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary) as required by ISO 22745 part 40. This creates an SDFx that is ISO 8000 compliant.
Once you have created your SDFx, upload it to the eSMM (ECCMA Shared Material Master).
The eSMM is a large repository of SDFxs, containing millions of records that can be searched and viewed, depending on type of membership. An SDFx is a specification that is formatted in a way that is easy for a computer to use (an SDFx is an ISO 8000 technical specification formatted in xml according to ISO 22745-40 using the ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary (eOTD) for concept encoding).
Technical specifications can be downloaded in xml format, for unambiguous sharing across multiple platforms and languages.
Free registration is required to access basic functionality of the eSMM. ECCMA Members can access advanced features offered by the eSMM.
A QUIP (Quality Identifier Prefix) is a unique name or alpha-numeric character string that is used to identify products, parts and services. The QUIP represents the name or brand of the legal owner of the data.

An SDFx Builder is a technical specification formatted according to ISO 22745 part 40, which is the international standard for technical specifications. The SDFx Builder helps you create these specifications by providing the format and necessary templates to achieve this.
Create ISO 8000 compliant technical specifications (SDFx) by using pre-defined templates or creating customized templates using terms registered in eOTD (ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary). The SDFx can then be published to the eSMM (ECCMA Shared Material Master), which serves as a repository of ECCMA Standard Technical Specifications.
