Exchanging Technical Product Data, The Story of ISO TC 184/SC4
Sharon J. Kemmerer
Developing exchange standards for technical product data started historically as multiple, and isolated, national efforts in the 1970s and early 80s. The industrial domain leading the way in the 70s was primarily the transportation sector (automotive and aerospace). As manufacturers of such large ¿products¿ began to outsource and depend more heavily on a large complex supply chain infrastructure, it became more inefficient to exchange product data. Enter: a way to develop a standardized exchange method for product data in an internationally recognized forum --- ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
