S1000D Readiness Assessment

10 Questions: Assess Your S1000D Project Launch Readiness

Implementing S1000D standards is a major undertaking for any organization. The following questions will help you understand your readiness to successfully launch and execute your S1000D project.


At the end of the survey, you will see your assessment results and be able to download a complimentary white paper, “5 Things Every Project Manager Should Know about S1000D”.


The assessment is divided into three sections;


Initial Project Planning (Questions 1-3)


Without proper analysis, it’s difficult to determine how to implement S1000D for a single project or program, much less as an enterprise-wide initiative in terms of:

  • Expense and funding
  • Effort and duration
  • Success goals and metrics
  • Organizational impact


Training and Communications Planning (Questions 4-7)


Those involved in the implementation and support of the S1000D specification need training to ensure the long-term success of your program.


In addition to specification training for your project team, S1000D includes content management capabilities and features that require a trained publishing team who understands the content/tech data architecture and strategy.


We highly recommend training your publishing and application support teams so that they can take full advantage of advanced features, including: the conditions cross-reference table (applicability), disassembly codes, system breakdown code, change markup, auto-generation of front matter, technical repositories, data module extension codes, linked warnings, linked cautions, BREX rules, data modules and more.


S1000D: Specific Plans and Decisions (Questions 8-10)


Questions 8-10 cover several key S1000D decisions that need to be made upfront before you launch your project.


Business rules form the foundation of your content strategy and your S1000D implementation planning approach. You derive business rules by analyzing and documenting your S1000D implementation choices.


At some point you will need to adopt and manage a Standard Numbering System (SNS) and Info Sets or create a new SNS and Info Sets (if no predefined SNS and Info Sets exist). You will have a much better experience if you get to know what’s involved before you go too far.


And, finally, the Common Source Data Base (CSDB) is a central repository for all files you create for S1000D content and delivery. As the heart of any S1000D system, the CSDB commonly has check out/check in capabilities and it controls all key metadata and the workflows surrounding the creation, modification and publishing of S1000D data. Before you launch your S1000D project, you should determine the CSDB features you need to meet your content requirements over the life of your S1000D programs.

S1000D Readiness Stages

Foundation – The stage at which you and/or your team are collecting information and knowledge to assist in the formation of your project plans. At this stage, most team are trying to understand and determine the challenges, the stakeholders, the expectations for the project and the enabling capabilities needed to form the foundation for success.  

Formation – The stage where the project is being defined. Project team members have been identified, the initial scope, budget and timelines are becoming clear, the success criteria is outlined and the main focus is on ensuring all aspects have been identified and incorporated into the project plans. At this stage, project managers will want to ensure they have incorporated all critical components to ensure minimal risks and optimal outcomes are built into their plans.  

Launch – At this stage, all systems are go! Your project plan, your team and your executive sponsors are all onboard and ready to launch your S1000D project. When you reach this stage, the project can still benefit from further optimization. Small additions or modifications can help improve your chances of success even further. Be open to additional considerations, ideas or modifications as they emerge.
