Abstract

At this time the twelve documents that make up the initial release of the Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (known as STEP) have been sent to the ISO in Geneva to begin the final process leading to publication as international standards ISO 10303. These documents, consisting of 2104 pages, fulfill the goal to producing a single world standard for product data representation and exchange.
