10 ATA SPEC2000 E-Business Specification for Materiels Management Introduction Background It has long been recognized by both airlines and aircraft material suppliers that significant productivity gains and cost reductions can be achieved through rapid, standardized communication of information. It is with these objectives in mind that [ATA Spec 200] was developed in the late 50's for the mechanical interchange of provisioning, order placement and shipment information. Technology at that time dictated that [ATA Spec 200] be developed in a punch card oriented environment. As the years went by, the limitations of 80-column cards created the need for "workarounds", resulting in a complex Specification requiring constant revisions.
