Road vehicles - Standardized repair and maintenance information (RMI) terminology - Part 1: General information and use case definition (ISO 18542-1:2012)

ISO 18542 is structured in two parts: - This part of ISO 18542 defines a framework and a process for agreeing terms. - Part 2 defines the process implementation requirements for a terminology management system and for a Registration Authority with a digital annex. The basic purpose of ISO 18542 is to facilitate searching of vehicle manufacturer (VM) repair and maintenance information (RMI) websites by independent operators (IOs). This part of ISO 18542 provides a general overview and structure of each part of ISO 18542. It also specifies use cases related to repair and maintenance information (RMI) terminology in order to standardize the access to RMI for IOs. The provision of the agreed automotive RMI terminology itself is outside the remit of ISO 18542 and therefore outside the scope of this part of ISO 18542. Rather, it is foreseen that the agreed automotive RMI terminology will follow a lifecycle beyond the timeframe of ISO 18542. It will be dependent upon the work of a Registration Authority, a Terminology Review Group for its creation and management, and of a digital annex for its publication. For the development of the digital annex, existing standards will be reviewed and elements included where appropriate and practical.

Straßenfahrzeuge - Standardisierte Terminologie für Reparatur- und Wartungsinformationen (RMI) - Teil 1: Allgemeine Informationen und Beschreibung der Anwendungsfälle (ISO 18542-1:2012)

ISO 18542 besteht aus 2 Teilen:
-   Teil 1 legt die Grundstruktur und den Prozess für übereinstimmende Begriffe fest.
-   Teil 2 behandelt die Definition von Anforderungen für die Prozessimplementierung für ein Terminologie Managementsystem und für eine Registrierungsstelle mit einem digitalen Anhang.
Die Grundabsicht von ISO 18542 ist die Unterstützung der Suche der unabhängigen Marktteilnehmer (IOs) von Reparatur- und Instandhaltungsinformationen (RMI) auf Websites der Fahrzeughersteller (VM).
Dieser Teil der ISO 18542 beinhaltet allgemeine Informationen, die einen allgemeinen Überblick und Struktur über jeden Teil der ISO 1852 geben. Die Norm legt außerdem Anwendungsfälle bezogen auf die Terminologie von Reparatur- und Wartungsinformationen (RMI) fest, um den Zugriff von RMI für unabhängige Markteilnehmer zu standardisieren.
Die Bereitstellung der festgelegten Terminologie für RMI von Fahrzeugen liegt außerhalb der Aufgabenstellung der ISO 18542 und ist deshalb nicht Teil des Anwendungsbereiches der ISO 18542. Es ist eher vorherzusehen, dass die Beschäftigung mit festgelegter Terminologie für RMI von Fahrzeugen über den Zeitrahmen der ISO 18542 hinausgehen wird. Dies hängt von der Erstellung und Verwaltung der Terminologie durch eine Registrierungsstelle und eine Terminologie Prüfungsgruppe ab sowie von der Entwicklung eines digitalen Anhangs für die Veröffentlichung der Terminologie. Für die Entwicklung eines digitalen Anhangs werden bereits vorhandene Normen überprüft und geeignete und praktische Elemente eingeschlossen.

Véhicules routiers - Terminologie normalisée pour l'information sur la réparation et la maintenance (RMI) - Partie 1: Informations générales et définition de cas d'utilisation (ISO 18542-1:2012)

L'ISO 18542 comporte deux parties:
la Partie 1 définit un cadre et un processus d'approbation de termes;
la Partie 2 définit les exigences de mise en ?uvre d'un processus relatif à un système de gestion terminologique et à une autorité d'enregistrement, avec une annexe numérique.
L'objectif fondamental de l'ISO 18542 est de faciliter la recherche par des opérateurs indépendants (OI) sur les sites Web d'information sur la réparation et la maintenance (RMI, repair and maintenance information) des constructeurs de véhicules (VM, vehicle manufacturers).
L'ISO 18542-1:2012 donne un aperçu général et la structure de chaque partie de la norme. Elle spécifie également des cas d'utilisation relatifs à la terminologie pour l'information sur la réparation et la maintenance (RMI) afin de normaliser l'accès aux RMI pour des opérateurs indépendants.
La fourniture de la terminologie RMI convenue pour l'automobile ne relève pas de l'ISO 18542 et ne fait donc pas partie du domaine d'application de l'ISO 18542-1:2012. Il est plutôt prévu que la terminologie RMI convenue pour l'automobile suive un cycle de vie allant au-delà de l'échéance de l'ISO 18542. Elle dépendra des travaux d'une autorité d'enregistrement, d'un groupe de révision de la terminologie pour sa création et sa gestion et d'une annexe numérique pour sa publication. En ce qui concerne l'élaboration de l'annexe numérique, des normes existantes seront revues et des éléments seront inclus si cela est approprié et possible.

Cestna vozila - Standardizirana terminologija za popravila in vzdrževanje - 1. del: Splošna informacija in definicija primera uporabe (ISO 18542-1:2012)

Standard ISO 18542 je sestavljen iz dveh delov: – ta del standarda ISO 18542 določa okvir in postopek za usklajevanje izrazov; – 2. del določa zahteve za izvajanje postopka za sistem vodenja terminologije in za registracijski organ z digitalnim dodatkom. Osnovni namen standarda ISO 18542 je olajšati iskanje spletnih mest proizvajalca vozila z informacijami o popravilih in vzdrževanju s strani samostojnih izvajalcev. Ta del standarda ISO 18542 podaja splošen pregled in sestavo vsakega dela standarda ISO 18542. Prav tako določa primere uporabe, povezane s terminologijo za popravila in vzdrževanje, za standardizacijo dostopa do informacij o popravilih in vzdrževanju za samostojne izvajalce. Zagotovitev dogovorjene terminologije za popravila in vzdrževanje za motorna vozila ni v pristojnosti standarda ISO 18542, zato je ta del standarda ISO 18542 ne obravnava. Življenjski cikel dogovorjene terminologije za popravila in vzdrževanje za motorna vozila bo predvidoma presegel časovni okvir standarda ISO 18542. Od dela registracijskega organa in skupine za pregled terminologije bosta odvisna njegov nastanek in vodenje, od digitalnega dodatka pa njegova objava. Za pripravo digitalnega dodatka se bodo pregledali veljavni standardi, ki jim bodo dodani elementi, kadar bo to primerno in praktično.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies

casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 18542-1 was prepared by Technical Committee CEN/CENELEC/TC 301, Road vehicles in collaboration

with Technical Committee ISO/TC 22, Road vehicles, Subcommittee SC 3, Electrical and electronic equipment.

ISO 18542 consists of the following parts, under the general title Road vehicles — Standardized repair

and maintenance information (RMI) terminology:
— Part 1: General information and use case definition

— Part 2: Standardized process implementation requirements, Registration Authority

Introduction

ISO 18542 includes the requirements to be fulfilled by repair and maintenance information (RMI)

systems as applied by the:

EUROPEAN COMMISSION - ENTERPRISE AND INDUSTRY DIRECTORATE-GENERAL, Consumer goods -

Automotive industry EC mandate M/421 [3]
“MANDATE TO THE EUROPEAN STANDARDIZATION ORGANISATIONS FOR STANDARDIZATION IN
THE FIELD OF VEHICLE OBD, REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE INFORMATION”
dated Brussels, 21 January 2008.

This mandate relates to the EC type-approval system for vehicles falling into the scopes of Directives

2002/24/EC [5], 2003/37/EC [6] and 2007/46/EC) [7], and, in particular, to requirements for access to

vehicle repair and maintenance information by independent operators.

At this time, ISO 18542 only covers the terminology for access to automotive repair and maintenance

information for light passenger and commercial vehicles based on Directive 2007/46/EC [7].

The purpose of the EC Mandate M/421 [3] is to develop a standard or set of standards which specify

the requirements to provide “standardized access to repair and maintenance information (RMI)” for

independent operators.

The information included in this part of ISO 18542 derives from the legislative requirements at a

European level in the field of repair and maintenance information and related security requirements

and can be referenced by legislation in other countries.
It is related to the following future International Standards:

— ISO 18542-2, Road vehicles — Standardized repair and maintenance information (RMI)

terminology — Part 2: Standardized process implementation requirements, Registration Authority,

which defines the process implementation requirements for a terminology management system and

for a Registration Authority with a digital annex;

— ISO 18541-1, Road vehicles — Standardized access to automotive repair and maintenance information

(RMI) — Part 1: General information and use case definition, which describes the requirements for

the vehicle manufacturer (VM) repair and maintenance information (RMI) systems;

— ISO 18541-2, Road vehicles — Standardized access to automotive repair and maintenance information

(RMI) — Part 2: Technical requirements;

— ISO 18541-3, Road vehicles — Standardized access to automotive repair and maintenance information

(RMI) — Part 3: Functional user interface requirements;

— ISO 18541-4, Road vehicles — Standardized access to automotive repair and maintenance information

(RMI) — Part 4: Conformance test.

The purpose of the standardized automotive terminology is to facilitate searching for RMI in the VM

RMI systems.

1) REGULATION (EC) No 715/2007 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 20 June 2007

on type approval of motor vehicles with respect to emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles (Euro 5

and Euro 6) and on access to vehicle repair and maintenance information [7] and COMMISSION REGULATION

(EC) No 692/2008 of 18 July 2008 implementing and amending Regulation (EC) No 715/2007 of the European

Parliament and of the Council on type-approval of motor vehicles with respect to emissions from light passenger

and commercial vehicles (Euro 5 and Euro 6) and on access to vehicle repair and maintenance information [8] and

amending COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 566/2011 of 8 June 2011 amending Regulation (EC) No 715/2007

The information packages that are to be searched using the standardized terminology are described in

this part of ISO 18542. Not all of the use cases and information types described in this part of ISO 18542

are pertinent; rather a subset is applicable to this standard.

This subset concerns the searching of the terms described in UC 4.2 according to ISO 18541-1 of the

following information package types:
— Workshop Procedures (UC 5.1);
— Wiring Diagrams (UC 5.2);
— Technical Service Bulletins (UC 5.3).

General information and use case definition
1 Scope
ISO 18542 is structured in two parts:
— This part of ISO 18542 defines a framework and a process for agreeing terms.

— Part 2 defines the process implementation requirements for a terminology management system and

for a Registration Authority with a digital annex.

The basic purpose of ISO 18542 is to facilitate searching of vehicle manufacturer (VM) repair and

maintenance information (RMI) websites by independent operators (IOs).

This part of ISO 18542 provides a general overview and structure of each part of ISO 18542. It also

specifies use cases related to repair and maintenance information (RMI) terminology in order to

standardize the access to RMI for IOs.

The provision of the agreed automotive RMI terminology itself is outside the remit of ISO 18542 and

therefore outside the scope of this part of ISO 18542. Rather, it is foreseen that the agreed automotive

RMI terminology will follow a lifecycle beyond the timeframe of ISO 18542. It will be dependent upon

the work of a Registration Authority, a Terminology Review Group for its creation and management, and

of a digital annex for its publication. For the development of the digital annex, existing standards will be

reviewed and elements included where appropriate and practical.

5 Standardized RMI terminology - General information and overview
5.1 Fundamental principles

There are a number of agreed fundamental principles that underpin this document. An appreciation of

these principles is important to understanding the objective of the standard, and, how this part of the

standard helps to achieve this objective.
The key principles are:

— The agreed VM RMI terminology development is an on-going task not constrained by the timescales

for development of this standard.

— VMs will not be required to change their internal terminology or their VM RMI systems, to meet

this standard. They may choose to conduct a mapping exercise whereby the agreed term will get

mapped to an internal term to facilitate IOs in searching the VM RMI system.
— The terminology sources to be agreed are derived from existing VM terminology.

— All proposals submitted by a VM for an agreed new term are to be submitted in US-English.

— All proposals submitted by the IO nominated person as a result of the feedback process for existing

terms are to be submitted in US English.

— The VM terminology provided for RMI and its maintenance is the responsibility of the VM.

— IO representatives (up to two) will participate as reviewers in the terminology definition process.

— The primary user for the agreed terminology is the individual end user of the VM RMI system.

— VMs are only required to support terminology mapping for languages for which a digital annex is in

existence and if they provide this language to their ARs.

— Once a term has been agreed and mapped, this Term shall not change except in cases where there

has been a fundamental misunderstanding of the engineering concept. Therefore only requests for

new terms are allowed.
5.2 Scope of the agreed VM RMI terminology

The process defined in this standard is focused on terms convenient for searching automotive RMI in a

VM RMI system according to use case 4.2 in ISO 18541-1.

As an implication, the granularity of the RMI terminology shall be at the level of main components or

assembly parts that can be removed and re-fitted. Elementary parts, e.g. screws, seals, etc. are not

referred to in the terminology. A search based on elementary parts would often deliver no results.

Elementary parts usually do not appear in titles or tags of RMI documents.

It is expected, that the number of agreed terms in the digital annex will be moderate (i.e. initially this

is expected to be of the order of 1 000 terms). The set of agreed terms will be the result of a balanced

trade-off between level of detail and such aspects as usability and search efficiency for the user.

In order to maintain the integrity of the digital annex, abbreviations and acronyms will not be permitted.

The main reasons for this are that abbreviations and acronyms can be misunderstood and misleading in

the reference source language of US-English.

EXAMPLE AC = Air Conditioning, Air Compressor, Air Conditioner, Acceptance Criteria, Air Cooled, Active

Component, Authentication Code, Adjacent Channel, Analogue Control, Alignment Check, Alternating Current,

Antenna Controller, Atmospheric Correction. These are some of approximately 500 definitions for AC alone.

Their translation into all defined search languages would expand the digital annex through proliferation

of Terms and lead to further misunderstandings and confusion.
