Specification of the Asset Administration Shell Part 3a: Data Specification – IEC 61360 – IDTA Number: 01003-a-3-0

The Asset Administration Shell allows to define data specification templates. Data specification templates aim to enable interoperability between the partners that agree on the template. A template defines a set of attributes, with each attribute having a clear semantics. This set of attributes corresponds to a (sub-)schema.

This document specifies data specification templates conformant to IEC 61360. IEC 61360 specifies how to define the semantics of single properties or values. The value range of a property can be defined as a value list – an enumeration -, while each of the (coded) values of the value list are treated as single concepts. They are thus suited to be used as data specifications for concept descriptions.
