Abstract:

The purpose of this analysis was to determine whether S1000D, an international specification for technical publications, should be required in Department of Defense DoD acquisitions. Based on the information and opinions gathered from nearly 200 participants in the study, we conclude that S1000D should be a required standard for technical publications across the DoD. This action should be taken in conjunction with a program to implement, transition, and promote its success. The program would include a set of critical provisions for DoD to do the following 1 managegovern the use of the standard, 2 promote the use of the standard, 3 support the adoption and evolution of the standard, and 4 establish and enforce the use of the standard.
