[A204] Spec 2000 - eBusiness Built on Common Data and AIDC
Instructor: Rick Bushnell
If you are going to want to sell products to any of the major companies mentioned below or if you are wrestling with cradle to grave product and item identification, you need to know about Spec 2000. And the man to explain it (in easy-to-understand business language) is Jon Andresen, the Technical Architect in the Information Services Division of United Airlines, who serves as the Chair of the ATA Spec 2000 Bar Code Taskforce.
Spec 2000 is a
data standard and an eBusiness
standard that has put the airline industry “one to two decades ahead of other
industries”, according to one Auto ID company senior manager.
Daily, over 1,000 companies use Spec 2000 to query, order, ship, and
receive parts, all using computer-to-computer eBusiness transactions.
Spec 2000 has defined the data format to give expensive serialized parts
a permanent, cradle-to-grave ‘social security number’ that is flexible and works
between companies as well as within companies.
This Permanent Bar Code ID on Parts is the
Best Commercial Practice supported by Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, P&W,
Collins, Honeywell, major airlines and hundreds of worldwide vendors.
