Abstract : The focus of this document is to refine the functional needs identified in Functional Needs IDEFO Activity and Information Needs for the PAS-C Program to correlate these composite part information exchange needs to resources in the PDES/STEP information models, and to prioritize the addressing of the voids identified during the comparison. The comparisons and prioritization provide insight into the breadth of the preliminary scopes of the Application Protocols (APs) for the PAS-C Program. The PAS-C Program addresses two critical national technologies--composites and product data exchange tools. Each of these emerging technologies exist in a dynamic environment. Not only are there fast paced technical changes, but there are also frequent changes in the organizations involved in formulating the technology. PAS-C has developed a set of approaches that will maximize the success of the PAS-C Program and minimize the risks associated with the changes that are on going in both the technology and the environment.
