ISO/TS 10303-1112:2019 specifies the application module for Specification control.

The following are within the scope of ISO/TS 10303-1112:2019:

  • product classes used to identify sets of similar products to be offered to the market;
  • specifications used to describe characteristics of the products;
  • specification categories used to group similar characteristics of the products;
  • specification expressions used to control the usage of a part within a product and to represent conditions for product classes;
  • product functions used to describe the functional requirements for products and components of products;
  • product components used to describe the common decomposition structure of all products of a product class or of various alternative solutions;
  • alternative solutions used to describe the variants for a product component or for a product function;
  • item instances used to identify an occurrence of a component in an assembly structure;

    EXAMPLE 1   An item instance could identify the elements of an alternative solution.

  • configurations used to link the parts (item instances), alternative solutions, product components, or product functions with their usage cases;

    EXAMPLE 2   An usage case is the the conditions under which configurations are used.

  • product specifications are used to identify a manufacturable product out of a product class by its specific characteristics (specifications);

    EXAMPLE 3   A customer order for a piece of furniture is a product identification.

  • items within the scope of application module Alternative solution, ISO/TS 10303-1109;
