Specifications & Standards

MIL-STD-100G (Engineering Drawing Practices) and MIL-DTL-31000A (Technical Data Packages) were released 9 June 1997. The corresponding Data Item Descriptions have also been released.

To compensate for the problem with the supporting non-Government standards (NGSs), a paragraph has been placed in the documents for information. Following is the wording in MIL-DTL-31000A (similar words are in MIL-STD-100).

6.4.4 Reference to non-Government standards (NGSs). Very broad areas of the subject matter of MIL-STD-100 have been replaced by or incorporated into NGSs. Every effort was made to harmonize the technical content and availability of the applicable NGSs to the requirements of the various technical data package elements obtainable through MIL-DTL-31000A. However, users of this specification, especially during the earliest stages of initial issue, may find that some needed NGSs are not available or fail to support basic document preparation requirements. In order to overcome this condition the user should be prepared to detail the needed documentation practice directly in the statement of work (SOW). Past issues of documents, such as superseded revisions of MIL-STD-100, may be used in attempting to establish the needed detail for entry into the SOW."

There are pointers in the body of MIL-DTL-31000A and MIL-STD-100 to the guidance contained in the above paragraph.
