ISO TC184/SC4  has developed the technology for digital product data representation and exchange that is represented by a family of International Standards.  The range of some of the applications of this technology in several areas of advanced engineering is indicated in the selection of standards and links in the list shown below.  All of the parts of ISO 10303 standards use common sections of information models to describe requirements that are common throughout engineering.  They illustrate how the basic technology is extendable to cope with new requirements and show how the needs for interoperability and data conservation  are common across all industrial sectors.
