Logistics Product Data
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
This standard defines logistics product data generated during the requirements definition and design of an industry or government system, end item or product. It makes use of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) through the use of entities and attributes that comprise logistics product data and their definitions. The standard is designed to provide users with a standard set of data tags for all or portions of logistics product data and customer defined sub-sets of logistics product data. The standard can be applied to any industry or government product, system or equipment acquisition program, major modification program, and applicable research and development projects. This standard is for use by both industry and government activities. As used in this standard, the requiring authority is generally the customer and the customer can be a government or industry activity. The performing activity may be either a industry or government activity. The use of the term "contract" in this standard includes any document of agreement between organizations.
The remainder of this chapter provides an overview of the types of logistics product data contained in the standard. Chapter 2 addresses the specific use of data grouped by functional area and entities. Functional areas can be combined to create data exchange sets. Appendix A provides a plain English definition for each of the data elements types used by the entities in Chapter 2. Electronic versions of this standard provide for hypertext links between the Chapter 2 data elements and Appendix A element type definitions. Chapter 3 establishes the requirement to validate an XML instance of the data contained in this standard. Appendix B provides a dictionary of reference data element definitions commonly used in the grouping of data elements types in Appendix A. Once again, for electronic versions of this standard, the element types contain hypertext links between the two appendices. Appendix C provides the XML schema for use in exchanging the 108 entities contained in Chapter 2 of the standard. Since data exchange can involve updates to previously provided data sets, the appendix contains rules for addressing data exchange updates. Finally, Appendix D provides specific DEXs for the functional areas of Task Analysis, Provisioning and Packaging.
There are 108 entities with nearly 600 data types contained in the standard. Users should tailor their data transfer requirements to the specific requirements of the customer. GEIA-HB-0007 is a companion document to GEIA-STD-0007 that provides guidance for tailoring and contracting for the data in this standard.
