Release of Issue 6.0.



The S2000M Steering Committee herewith publishes Issue 6.0 of S2000M. This Issue 6.0 forms part of a common, interoperable, international ASD Suite of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) Specifications which is prepared in concert by ASD and AIA.

Issue 6.0 contains a number of changes compared to previous issues of S2000M, such as:

§   A simplification of the Initial Provisioning process using a common ILS Data Model for the ASD Suite of ILS Specifications.

§   A simplification of the Pricing, Order Administration and Invoicing into one Material Supply Process.

§   A reduction of the different types of transactions and their content.

§   A change of the message structure from EDIFACT to XML (eXtensible Markup Language) based on XSD (XML Schema Definition). Furthermore the IP data in chapter 1 is modeled using UML (Unified Modeling Language).


These changes also aim to allow for easier integration of S2000M into widely used ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems.

Issue 6.0 is based on the Pre-Release which was issued in December 2013 to obtain comments from current and prospective S2000M users in order to come to a widely supported Issue 6.0 of S2000M. The comments received have been reviewed and where feasible incorporated in this Issue 6.0.

Requests for Clarification and Change Proposals against this Issue 6.0 can be submitted as per the procedure described in the specification (See Chapter 0, Introduction). Nevertheless – considering the substantial changes with earlier issues of S2000M – the SC will accept comments through a simplified method using the attached form. Please submit your comments (if any) not later than 31 March 2016 to the S2000M administrator (spec2000m@nspa.nato.int).

The ASD S2000M defines the Materiel Management processes and procedures to be used in support of any aerospace products. From Issue 4.0, the scope has been extended to include land and sea specific applications. The specification can now also be used for the support of any type of equipment including both military and civil products.

§   Chapter 1A describes the Provisioning process of selecting support items and spares, necessary for the support of any product. The chapter defines the process and specifies the data, formats and transmission, change and update procedures to be used in providing provisioning information to the Customer. It also provides the data base from which Illustrated Parts Catalogues (IPC) or IPDP (Illustrated Parts Data Publication) are produced. The rules for the production and presentation of the IPC in different media are covered by Specification 1000D.

§   Chapter 1B covers the process of exchanging information for NATO codification purposes between Industry, the National Codification Bureau(s) and the Customer.

§   Chapter 1C enables the Contractor to supply parts data to the Customer in order to use the processes as described in Chapters 2 to 4 of this Specification without the necessity to use processes as described in Chapters 1A and 1B of this Specification.

This Chapter defines methods for Industry to provide pricing information on parts

§   via Price List

Chapter 4:
Invoicing provides a standard process of transmitting invoice data and invoice status between the Customer and Contractor.


Chapter 5:
Since issue 4.0 no longer supplied.


Chapter 6:
