Content management for S1000D

SDL Contenta S1000D is a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) Common Source Data Base (CSDB) that supports content authored to the S1000D specification.

Conceived in the 1980s, S1000D has long been used for defense programs in Europe, and is recently being adopted by civil aviation and defense organizations in North America. If you work in aerospace or defense, it is very likely that S1000D will soon become part of your everyday vernacular. 

SDL has the experience, technology and track record to partner with you as you adopt and promote S1000D within your organization. We learned S1000D by dealing with it in real environments where our clients were facing real challenges. We'll help you get started, plan effectively based on your unique needs and constraints, and stay with you through the entire project to ensure your success.

How SDL Structured Content technologies support S1000D

SDL Contenta S1000D provides the automation and efficiency needed to deliver S1000D content reliably, repeatedly and effectively to your customers, partners and suppliers. It is used by authors, editors and program and publication managers for the creation, management and delivery of technical information. 

With built-in S1000D tools, SDL Contenta S1000D provides automated Data Module Code (DMC) creation, "drag and drop" uploading, powerful multi-channel publishing capabilities and simple, Web-based interfaces that provide control over the complexities of S1000D. 

SDL Contenta S1000D contains an automated workflow that can clearly distinguish between work-in-process and approved or published content, and provide status throughout the editorial and publishing process. It controls access to Data Modules based on user roles and project status, and it provides locking mechanisms to prevent inadvertent parallel editing.

We're seeing increased interest in S1000D.

Whether S1000D is mandated in your contract, you need to deliver S1000D compliant content, or you're looking to reduce costs, you'll need access to resources to help you navigate the specification. SDL has resources available to help you attain the benefits of S1000D.
