The Air Transport Association of America (ATA) e-Business Program brings together members of the global commercial aviation industry.
These members create standards for e-business specifications for information exchange in support of:
- Material management
- Flight operations
The program’s scope spans the entire lifecycle of an aircraft, achieved predominantly by two specifications:
- iSpec 2200 – information standards for aviation and maintenance
- Spec 2000 – e-business specifications for materials management
ATA e-Business Program members include:
- Aerospace manufacturers
- Repair agencies
- Software providers
These members jointly develop the standards used to make information exchange easier and more efficient.
As a result, airlines and suppliers have seen dramatic improvements in data efficiency, security and consistency – as well as significant reductions in the time required for delivery and retrieval of operationally critical information.
