The Data Module Code

Before it was possible to generate any S1000D documents at all, an identification numbering system, or data module code, had to be devised as this information is stored internally in the data module, in the <indentAndStatusSection> mentioned earlier, and also forms part of the data module file name. The data module code is built up of a number of sections which are described in detail below.

Table 4. A word of advice..

Once again S1000D clearly shows its roots in component manufacturing. Codes such as model identification, system difference, subsystem and assembly make a lot of sense when talking about the components of an aircraft engine but not so much in other contexts such as general procedural documents and it can be hard to make meaningful sense of them.
