1 Introduction
1-1 General
This ABD provides rules for coherent definition and application of Numbering and Naming
requirements for aircraft functions and constituents.
The objective is to obtain maximum consistency:
- From the Design stage to the Product Support stage.
- Between documents and what is actually on the aircraft (labels/placards/markings and messages
shown on display units).
- Between Aircraft Projects (starting from A340/A330) to facilitate Cross Qualification for Crew and
Maintenance Personnel.
This consistency is essential not only for our Customers but also for Airbus Industrie and the
Members (due to the wide use of Electronic Data Processing - EDP).
Where directives already exist to cover the above requirements this ABD simply refers to the relevant
directives. Otherwise the rules are laid down in this ABD.
1-2 Reference Documents
- ATA 100 Specification.
- ARINC Characteristics/Specifications.
- ABD0037 - Airbus Approved Abbreviations Handbook (AAAH).
- ABD0046 - Units of Measurement.
- ABD0056 - Glossary of Airbus Terms and Expressions (GATE).
1-3 Applicability
Applicable to all current and future production Airbus aircraft, including development of existing
aircraft and aircraft definition evolution, eg: modification.
1-4 Organization of ABD0036
ABD0036 is organized in general accordance with the order of events in which aircraft/aircraft items
are numbered and named. The following chart shows this sequence, and refers to the relevant
sections of this ABD, or to any other document, for the corresponding rules. Catalogs of Standard
Terms are provided in the appendix to this ABD.

Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000
2 Numbering/Naming - General
2-1 General
An aircraft, for the purpose of this ABD, is composed of:
- data and documentation for definition, description and justification,
- the aircraft itself which comprises functions and the techniques, (i.e.: the aircraft constituent
items), used to fulfil these functions.
2-2 Identification of Functions and Techniques
Functions are identified by a title and a reference number in accordance with ATA Specification 100
(refer to Section 4).
Techniques have basically two types of identification:
- a Functional Designation together with a Functional Identification Number (FIN). These are used
when an item is considered only from a functional aspect. They usually relate to items of
equipment or to Standard Items with a significant function,
- a Technological Description together with a Part Number. These are used when an item is
considered from a technological aspect. They are used for all types of items.
Note: Technological Descriptions and Part Numbers can be allocated by Airbus Members and
Associated Partners. In this case the descriptions are referred to as Standardized Techno-
logical Descriptions.
They can also be allocated by suppliers, in which case they are referred to as Suppliers'
Technological Descriptions.
2-3 Definitions
Functional Designation (refer to Chapter 6)
Title describing the function of equipment/components or significant items of an aircraft
system/circuit/installation.
Standardized Technological Description (refer to Chapter 6)
The Standardized Technological Description is a term used to describe the basic technical function
of an item. It must be consistent with the basic part of the Functional Designation.
Specification Reference and Title
For items defined by means of a Technical Specification (refer to ABD0010/0200), the title of the
Technical Specification shall be the Standardized Technological Description, written in the normal
order of words in English, eg: Retractable Landing Light, not Light-Retractable, Landing.
Suppliers' Technological Description
If, in response to a specification, a supplier can offer an item which is in his current range and can be
supplied as an "off the shelf" item it may retain its identification. In such cases the following
descriptions can apply:
- a Functional Designation,
- a Standardized Technological Description,
- a Supplier's Technological Description.

4 Aircraft Functions
4-1 General
An aircraft consists of:
- functions which are necessary for the aircraft to meet its specification,
- techniques by which the functions are achieved.
Functions are numbered and named in general accordance with ATA Spec. No. 100 - SPECIFI-
CATION FOR MANUFACTURERS TECHNICAL DATA, generally known as "ATA 100".
4-2 ATA Specification 100 - Background
First issued in 1956, the objective of ATA Specification 100 is to standardize the presentation of data
provided by manufacturers to airlines, so that the same information can be found in generally the
same place and form whatever the aircraft and/or the manufacturer. As regards functions, the
objective is achieved by a standard system of breaking the aircraft down into its functions, and of
numbering and naming them. This system is known as the ATA breakdown system. The numbers
are known as ATA References, and provide a unique addressing system.
ATA Specification 100 breaks an aircraft down into its functions as follows:
- Systems (known as Chapters in related publications).
- Sub-Systems (or Sections).
- Sub-Sub-Systems (or Sub-Sections).
- Units (or Subjects).
Each function group has a standard 6-digit number (the ATA Ref.) and a name (known as a title).
These are specified in ATA Specification 100 as far as the sub-system level, common to any aircraft.
From the sub-sub-system level, each individual manufacturer continues the allocation to suit the
aircraft involved.
The breakdown system is based on an alphabetical sequence using titles allocated to
Systems, eg:
Air Conditioning Chapter 21-00-00
Auto Flight Chapter 22-00-00
Communications Chapter 23-00-00
Within each System are Sub-Systems. For example, ATA Chapter 21 deals with the Air Conditioning
System and provides for a range of sub-systems, eg:
Compression ATA Ref. 21-10-00
Distribution ATA Ref. 21-20-00
Each Sub-System (eg: Distribution ATA Ref. 21-20-00) is further divided into Sub-Sub-Systems.
"Distribution" (21-20-00) provides a number of Sub-Sub-Systems including:
Cabin Air Distribution ATA Ref. 21-21-00
and Recirculation
Cockpit Air Ventilation ATA Ref. 21-22-00
Each Sub-Sub-System (referred to as circuits or installations), comprises Units (components). "Cabin
Air Distribution and Recirculation" (21-21-00) includes for example:
Filter-Recirculation ATA Ref. 21-21-41
Check Valve-Recirculation ATA Ref. 21-21-42

4-3 The ATA Specification 100 and Airbus
The ATA Specification 100 itself states that the standards it establishes are "recommendatory in
nature" but that they "become mandatory to the extent they may be incorporated into the purchase
agreements executed between the individual suppliers and the individual operators". Airbus General
Purchase Agreements stipulate general compliance with ATA Specification 100 for contractual
Technical Publications, therefore Airbus is committed to following ATA Specification 100.
For this reason and in order to achieve maximum consistency between Airbus data, (both that
supplied to customers and that used as a basis for the data supplied to customers), and between
this data and the aircraft itself, a specific Airbus ATA Breakdown is established at XX-XX-00
level at the outset of each new Program/Project, and is later completed at XX-XX-XX level.
Each Sub-Sub-System is allocated:
- A circuit identification consisting of two letters.
- Its own ATA Ref. (XX-XX-00).
- A title (Refer to section 4-7).
Each unit within a Sub-Sub-System is allocated:
- A Functional Item Number (FIN) - Ref. ABD0004.
- An associated ATA Ref. (XX-XX-XX).
- A title (Refer to Section 4-7).
The resulting Breakdown is used as a basis for the numbering of drawings and documents.
Examples include:
- Aircraft Standard Specification.
- Detail Specifications.
- Technical Design Directives (TDD).
- Mechanical drawings.
- Electrical drawings.
- Electrical wires.
- Equipment specifications.
- System Description Notes (SDN).
- Airframe Certification Documentation (ACD).
- Certification documentation.
- Documents/data for relations with customers (eg: Technical Publications).
The remainder of this chapter gives the details of when, how and by whom ATA numbers and names
are to be allocated.
4-4 Airbus ATA Breakdown Establishment Sequence (Refer to Section 6-3)
The sequence of activities leading to the establishment of the ATA Breakdown is as follows:
A - Identification of all functions at XX-X0-00 and XX-XX-00 level, at the outset of each Airbus
project, or as and when new functions are introduced.
B - Identification of all items required to fulfill the functions. Allocation of FINs and associated
Functional Designations (Refer to ABD0004 - Definition Dossier, for numbering rules, and
ABD0036 for functional designations).
C - Allocation of functional ATA References (XX-XX-11 to XX-XX-99) and related titles for those
detail functions (items) considered to be significant for maintenance.

4-6-2 XX-XX-00 Level
To ensure consistency the ATA Breakdown of the preceding Program/Project shall be taken as
reference. Changes may be made only if required by the aircraft technology.
4-6-3 XX-XX-XX level
4-6-3-1 A 6 digit ATA Ref. is allocated to those items which require specific airframe documentation i.e.
A - Those governed by the Maintenance Review Board (MRB) for scheduled actions.
B - Those governed by the Maintenance Planning Document (MPD) which is an implementation of
the MRB.
C - Those subject to GO/NO-GO/GO-IF classification in the Master Minimum Equipment List
(MMEL) and the Configuration Deviation List (CDL).
D - Those governed by the various onboard monitoring systems. In this case, any change to the
ATA Reference or Functional Designation of the Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) may only be
made after Design Office agreement to modify the software of the corresponding computers
(involves raising an aircraft Modification).
All LRUs monitored by the central warning and maintenance systems shall be identified by the
code letter "M" (monitored) in the DB ATA REF.
E - Additional Line Replaceable Units/Items (LRU/LRI).
F - Those requiring a special/specific maintenance action.
Note: The Breakdown does not allocate ATA References to Component Maintenance Manuals
(Vendor, Manufacturer). These ATA References, from 4
th
to 6
th
digit, are the responsibility of
the Supplier.

manufacturer's breakdown, except for items which are under the aircraft
manufacturer's responsibility and are therefore numbered in accordance
with the general rules contained in paragraph B.
Note: in the event that the APU manufacturer's breakdown numbering does
not conform to the AIB system, renumbering to obtain conformance is
permissible.
Chap 51 - The 5

contained in paragraph B.
Chaps 53 to 57 - The 5
th
digit is allocated in accordance with the general rules contained in
paragraph B. As far as possible the 6
th
digit should be allocated so that the
same item appearing in adjacent sections throughout the aircraft has the
same 5
th
and 6
th
digits in the different sub-chapters. Agreement between the
members during ATA ref allocation is required to achieve this consistency.
Chaps 71 to 80 - The 5
th

th
digits are allocated in accordance with the engine
manufacturer's breakdown, except for items which are under the aircraft
manufacturer's responsibility which are numbered in accordance with the
general rules contained in paragraph B.
Note: Special allocation Rules for chapters 91 to 99.
Chap 91 - (Main Wire Routing, Panels, and Wiring List - WDM only).

4-7 Rules for Allocating Titles
4-7-1 Systems/Sub-systems (XX-00-00/XX-X0-00)
Titles shall be in general conformity with ATA Specification 100 at the applicable Revision status.
Minor deviations are however, acceptable, if justified.
eg: 27-10-00 is AILERON AND TAB in ATA Specification 100.
In the Airbus ATA 100 Breakdown, it is simply AILERON, as there are no tabs on the ailerons.
Titles for additions or modifications to the ATA Specification 100 shall be included in the proposals to
the AIA/ATA Committee (Refer to Paragraph 4-6). They shall be precise, concise and fit in with the
ATA style.
4-7-2 Sub-sub-systems (XX-XX-00)
Correspond to the installations and circuits of a specific Aircraft Project. To be based on the
Breakdown of the previous Airbus Program/Project in so far as the technical definition of the new
project is identical.
Titles shall be concise but sufficiently general to satisfy further end usage and shall not be influenced
by different sub-sub-system configuration or sources of major equipment supply.
4-7-3 Significant Items (XX-XX-XX)
AIRBUS INDUSTRIE

Numbering/Naming
Page: 4 - 8
Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000
4-7-3-1 General
For items which have a significant function (such as Equipment/Component/Item, Standard Items,
Assy/Sub Assy) within a system, sub-system/sub-sub-system, a title is allocated as specified below.
4-7-3-2 Items Identified by a FIN
The title of the ATA Reference shall be consistent with the functional designation given to the item
involved (refer to chapter 6 for the rules governing functional designations). This means that:
- The main word shall be indicated first, followed by a dash and then the function on the aircraft,
plus the complementary modifier where really necessary.
But
- Abbreviations shall not be used unless the item is commonly referred to by its abbreviation (see
rules for abbreviations in paragraph 4-7-4) or unless they are extremely common, eg: MLG (Main
Landing Gear).
- A given ATA Reference may cover more than one FIN, in which case the title shall be limited to
the parts of the functional designation which are common to all the FINs.
Example:
Functional Designation ATA Ref. Title
1206 GM ACTG CYL-MLG DOOR, L
1207 GM ACTG CYL-MLG DOOR, R
1CE1 ELAC-1
1CE2 ELAC-2

1207 GM
27-91-13 ELAC (Elevator Aileron Computer)
1CE1
1CE2
1CE3
4-7-3-3 Items Not Identified by a FIN
For maintenance significant assemblies/subassemblies the titles shall be of a form similar to
Functional Designations, and the same rules shall be followed.
4-7-4 Use of Abbreviations
- Refer to ABD0037 - Airbus Approved Abbreviations Handbook (AAAH) for approved abbreviations.
Abbreviations shall be used under the following conditions:
XX-X0-00 and XX-XX-00
Designation in full of the function, in each ATA Reference where it is quoted, followed by:
- The abbreviations of the function if one exists, in single parentheses ( ),
eg: 31-60-00 Electronic Instrument System (EIS)
31-61-00 Electronic Instrument System (EIS) Control
However, in the case of internationally known abbreviations for common functions eg: ILS,
ATC. It is not necessary to complete with the full name.
- Complementary information, including abbreviations other than that of the function, in double
parentheses eg:
24-23-00 AC Auxiliary Generation ((APU Generator, GCU))
AIRBUS INDUSTRIE
ABD0036
Numbering/Naming
Page: 4 - 9
Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000
Abbreviations between (( )) are not indicated in full at XX-X0-00, XX-XX-00 level since they are
generally related to equipment (XX-XX-XX).
XX-XX-XX
For items commonly known by an abbreviation the main word shall consist of the abbreviation (as in
the functional designation for the item), and shall be followed by the name in full between
parentheses eg:
XX-XX-XX FQIC (Fuel Quantity Indication Computer).
4-7-5 Use of the Dash (-)
The dash is used at XX-00-00 and XX-XX-XX level only.
At XX-00-00 level, it separates the indication "GENERAL" from the system title eg: XX-00-00 Air
Conditioning - General.
At XX-XX-XX level, it separates the main word of the functional designation of a significant item from
the principal modifier (function).
eg: XX-XX-XX Check Valve - Green Reservoir Return
- Refer to Chapter 6-4 for rules concerning functional designations.
4-8 Data Storage and Outputs
4-8-1 General
All ATA Ref. data, when approved, is entered and stored in a central data base, the DB ATA REF.
This data base is accessible on line through the Airbus network.

5 Drawn Parts
5-1 General
These are items designed by AIB Members/Associated Partners or Subcontractors, and are
consequently defined by means of the drawing set.
5-2 Identification
These items are identified by a Part Number (PN) and by a Name selected from the "Standard
Terms for Drawn Parts" listed in catalog B in the Appendix to this ABD.
5-3 Rules for Numbering
Refer to ABD0004 - Definition Dossier.
5-4 Rules for Naming
5-4-1 General Rules
The golden rule is CONSISTENCY.
This applies at two levels:
(1) The same name shall be allocated to the same type of part, and this:
- whatever the aircraft project,
- whatever the aircraft section,
- whatever the AIB Member/Associated Partner/Subcontractor.
(2) The same name shall be used for the same PN in all applications:
- drawings and/or associated documents (whatever the type: detail, assembly, and whatever
the sheets: picture, schedule),
- technical publications (CMMM, IPC, SRM, etc.).
5-4-2 Sources for Naming
To achieve the required level of consistency, a catalog of standard names is provided in the separate
Appendix to this ABD:
- Appendix B - Drawn Parts.
If it is necessary to quote names of systems/sub-systems/sub-sub-systems, refer to drawing
00X00710000 (X representing the letter specific to the aircraft involved) or to the equivalent Basic
Approved ATA 100 Breakdown Index (BAABI).
Names of Non Standard Items in schedules of installation drawings shall be coherent with the ECDB
Functional Designation field, (Ref. 6-4-3).
The titles of the Installation Drawings of a Non Standard Item shall reflect at least the main word of
the Functional Designation allocated to this item.
5-4-3 Detail Parts - Content and Form
Detail parts shall be identified in accordance with paragraph 5-2.
The description for a given part shall always be the same whatever the sub-assembly or assembly on
which the item is installed.

Numbering/Naming
Page: 5 - 2
Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000
In the case of castings and forgings, it is the name describing the part which shall be used, (not the
word "CASTING", "FORGING", (eg: STRUT - MLG DRAG)).
Part names are limited to 21 characters. They must therefore:
- be brief,
- be sufficiently general to allow further end usage without needing to be changed but contain
sufficient information to categorize the part.
The main identifying noun or noun phrase shall be placed first, to facilitate the automated selection of
parts.
eg: SUPPORT
It shall be followed, if required, by a dash and then the most significant modifier or modifying phrase,
which will further describe the part so as to distinguish it from other parts of a similar name.
eg: SUPPORT - TUBULAR
Articles, prepositions and conjunctions such as "AN", "THE", "OF", "FOR" shall not appear in the part
name.
For drawings representing single detail parts, the name of the part and the title of the drawing shall
be identical.
eg: Dwg No XX F535 X0001 SUPPORT-TUBULAR
PN F535 X0001 SUPPORT-TUBULAR
5-4-4 Sub-assemblies/Assemblies - Content and Form
The rules are basically the same as for detail parts with the following difference:
- Titles for Sub-assembly/Assembly drawings shall contain the word ASSY with the main identifying
noun or noun phrase.
eg: SUPPORT ASSY
5-4-5 Installations - Content and Form
The rules are basically the same as for detail parts with the following difference:
- Title of installation drawings shall contain the word INSTL with the main identifying noun or noun
phrase.
eg: SUPPORT INSTL
5-4-6 Notes on Drawings
- Refer to Appendix C - Notes for Use on Drawings.
5-4-7 Applications
The names are allocated by means of Design Office drawings.
These are then used as a source for various other documents.
eg: - System Description Notes.
- Airframe Certification Document.
- Certification documents.
- Contractual technical publications.
Drawing Aperture Cards (DAC).
Structural Repair Manual (SRM).
Component Maintenance Manual Manufacturer (CMMM).

6-4 Rules for Naming - Functional Designations
6-4-1 General
The following rules apply to all items with a FIN, eg:
- Equipment (whether Off-the-Shelf or new Airbus specific).
- Components or Sub-components of equipment considered as being themselves Line
Replaceable Units (LRU).
- Functionally Significant Standard Items.
A Functional Designation shall indicate what the item involved is, and what it does on the aircraft and
in the system/circuit involved. It shall also include, where relevant, any related system, unit or location
data.
As a general rule, each FIN has a single Functional Designation which does not change, whatever
the source of supply (PN) of the item involved.
In general, Functional Designations are allocated at the same time as the FINs, on the Functional
Diagrams (FD) and Principle Diagrams (PD) and are then loaded in the Equipment Central Data
Bank (ECDB). They are structured in agreement with the basic rules set out in paragraph 6-4-3.
Later, they are used in other applications such as:
- labels,
- markings,
- display unit messages,
- ATA 100 Breakdown (Refer to Chap. 4),
- Contractual Technical Publications.
Depending on the application, they can be used:
- as defined in paragraph 6-4-3,
- in whole or in part (eg: labels),
- with or without abbreviations,
- with or without the Main Word first (eg: Display Unit Messages).
eg: The ATA 100 Breakdown uses Functional Designations at 6 digit level:
- with the Main Word first,
- but often in part only (several FINs for one ATA Reference),
- and very limited abbreviations.
Display Unit Messages also use Functional Designations:
- with abbreviations,
- but often only the Main Word,
- and always in the normal order of words (not "Main Word first" layout).
(Ref. paragraph 6-6).
But, whatever the form used in the above applications:
- the basic Functional Designations allocated on Functional Diagrams and Principle Diagrams and
loaded in ECDB shall always follow ABD0004 and ABD0036 (Paragraph 6-4-3) (i.e. Main
Word first, etc.),
- the wording shall be identical.

This means that the fact that some information on a drawing may result in a screen message does
not change the need for the drawing to follow ABD0004 and ABD0036.
6-4-2 Responsibility
- Ref. Applicable Worksharing Document (known as Report 6)
For pure Mechanical Items, the NSDW Level 1 Member shall allocate the FINs and associated
Functional Designation on the relevant Mechanical Functional Diagram.
For Electrical and Electromechanical Items (items which have at least one electrical connection),
the NSDW/SDW Level 2 Member shall allocate the FINs and associated Functional Desi-
gnations on the relevant Electrical Principle Diagram.
Where an equipment is classified "Electromechanical" it can appear simultaneously on the
Mechanical Functional and Electrical Principle Diagrams.
In this case the electrical FIN shall prevail in any common Data Base, and harmonization shall be
cleared in the framework of the system Interface activities for any other documents.
6-4-3 Form and Content of the Functional Designation
Functional Designations consist of:
- a Main Word or Words (20 characters max.),
- a Principal Modifier,
- a Complementary Modifier, where applicable,
the total not to exceed 54 characters.
The Main Word shall be separated from any Modifier by a dash (21
st
digit max, no spaces either side
of the dash). Modifiers shall be separated from each other by a comma.
eg: RELAY-LOW LEVEL DET, Y HYD RSVR
- The Main Word(s) shall be a basic description of the item (ie: the minimum information needed to
categorize the item, eg: Relay, Pump). Ideally, the Standardized Technological Description (Refer
to 6-7-1) should be used.
It shall form at least part of the Standardized Technological Description (indicated on the
Equipment/Component Specification) which is stored in a specific field in the ECDB, (Refer
to 6-5).
eg:
Standardized Technological
Description
Main word of Functional
Designation
RELAY
PUMP-HYDRAULIC
ACTUATOR-LINEAR
VALVE-CHECK, 1/2 IN
TRANSDUCER-PRESSURE

In the case of equipment commonly referred to by their abbreviation the whole abbreviation shall be
considered as the Main Word.

If a suffix is required it shall be considered as a complementary modifier.
Correct use of the Main Word(s) ensures consistency between eg: Functional/Principle Diagrams,
Messages on Display Units, Placards, Labels, Markings and Technical Publications. For this
reason, it is essential that the form and content shall remain constant in all applications.
In addition, the Main Words of Functional Designations for items common to more than one Airbus
Program/Project shall not change from one Program/Project to another, because of the
repercussions on the Standardized Technological Descriptions and therefore on the documents
that use them.
To facilitate selection of Main Words, and to ensure consistency of content and form throughout all
applications where Main Words are used, a catalog of the Standard Main Words to be used is

6-5 Rules for Naming - Standardized Technological Description
6-5-1 General
The Standardized Technological Description identifies the nature and category of an item in general
terms, eg: Proximity Sensor. Being independent of a specific function it allows the item to be used in
several applications across several projects or programs.
It shall be consistent with the title of the Technical Specification for the item and with the basic part of
the Functional Designation.
6-5-2 Responsibility
The reference document for Technical Specification title definition is the Functional Diagram/Principle
Diagram.
The responsibility for detail functional design is allocated to the NSDW Level 2.
Any conflicts shall be settled with the Level 1 organization.
The necessary coordination shall be ensured via the System Interface activities.
6-5-3 Form and Content of the Description
- General
The Standardized Technological Description shall reflect, as regards content but not necessarily
form (the order of words may be different), the Main Word of the Functional Designation. This may
be completed with any other technological information considered absolutely essential.
However, the name shall be sufficiently general to allow for any future use in applications not
originally envisaged.
This means that in general, Standardized Technological Descriptions shall not be related to any
specific type of aircraft or system.
eg: Filter-Air
Filter-Fuel
Pump-Fuel
Pump-Hydraulic
Pump-Water

Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000
However, in some cases (eg: for computers), where the design of the equipment is so specific to a
given function as to preclude any possibility of it being used for another function, mention of the
system/function is accepted eg:
Fuel Quantity Indication Computer (FQIC).
Air Data Inertial Reference Unit (ADIRU).
- Form of the Description
The Standardized Technological Description consists of:
a main identifying noun,
complementary information relative to the operating mode/application of the item,
if necessary, application information.
The total not to exceed 21 characters including spaces and/or special characters such as dash/
comma.
The main identifying noun shall be separated from the complementary information by a dash (-).
Any additional information shall be separated from the rest by a comma (,).
eg: Pump
Pump-Hydraulic
Valve-Fuel
Valve-Fuel, Remote Ctl
Valve-Pressure Holding
In some instances some common items may be adopted for specific functions. In such a case this
specific functional aspect may be included in the description.
eg: Valve-Air, Skin
Bearing-Steady, Kink
As in the case of Functional Designations for Non Standard Items (eg: computers) usually identified
by their abbreviations, the abbreviation shall be considered as the full description (i.e.: identifying
noun plus complementary information).
eg: Fuel Quantity Indication Computer (FQIC)
Note: Every effort shall be made by systems specialists to restrict use of this type of abbreviation to
major/complex equipment. Use of too many abbreviations of this kind does not enhance
comprehension by airline mechanics and CMM users.
- Description Consistency
Every effort must be made to ensure consistency in the Standardized Technological Descriptions
use in Airbus documents:
both within the same project, whatever the supplier and whoever the Member,
and from one Airbus project to another.
6-6 Naming - Application
6-6-1 Functional Designation Application
The Functional Designation shall be used in all applications (Data Banks/Documents) where the FIN
is the major means of identification.

12 Modification Proposals and Modifications
12-1 General
The definition of the design of an aircraft and any changes to the design are managed by a system of
Modification Proposals (MP) which, when accepted for implementation, become Modifications
(MOD).
An MP is associated with a MOD by a Change Identification Number (CIN).
To ensure that modification data can be stored in EDP systems, so facilitating its easy retrieval in
order to define an aircraft configuration, it is essential that MPs and MODs shall be correctly
numbered and titled.
12-2 Numbering
The method of numbering of MPs and MODs is defined at the start of an Aircraft Project/Program by
the appropriate General Modification Committee (GMC). Refer to Aircraft Configuration Management
Rules (ACMR) which is an updated version of the earlier Airbus Industrie Modifications Handbook
(AIMH).
12-3 Naming
12-3-1 General
In naming, the term "Subject" applies only to MPs. The term "Title" is applied only to MODs/CINs/
Service Bulletins.
It is important that names are correct and consistent as they are used for data extraction and enquiry
purposes. Both MPs and MOD's require names and the rules for establishing names are common to
both.
As soon as a modification is certificated its title and the subjects of the associated MPs names
should not be revised/amended. Consequently, they have to be correctly formulated at an early stage
of definition.
Titles for CINs depend on application (see 12-3-3-2) but generally follow the subject of the MP.
The length of titles shall not exceed 3 lines of 39 characters (117 characters including spaces).
Abbreviations shall be kept to a minimum and without exception shall comply with ABD0037 - Airbus
Approved Abbreviations Handbook.
12-3-2 Content and Form
12-3-2-1 General
MP subjects and MOD titles shall be written in accordance with the ATA Specification 100 rules for
Service Bulletin titles. This avoids having to change subjects/titles for Service Bulletins. According to
ATA Specification 100, the MP title shall generally consist of three categories of information:
- Designation of the major affected ATA Specification 100 Chapter.
- Designation of the major item affected.
- Description of the modification objective.
Detail considerations are explained in the following text.

12-3-2-2 Major ATA Specification 100 Chapter Affected
Great care shall be taken to select the correct ATA Specification 100 Chapter (2 digit level) as it
determines the numbering of the affected Service Bulletins.
The designation of the affected ATA Specifiication 100 Chapter shall be taken from the ATA 100
Breakdown applicable to the Aircraft Project/Program involved,
eg: - Fuselage
- Communications
- Flight Controls
Exceptionally, and only if necessary for comprehension, the ATA section or Sub-section designation,
taken from the applicable ATA 100 Breakdown, may be added.
eg: Water/Waste - Water Storage
12-3-2-3 Major Items Affected
Generally it is necessary to state, after the ATA Specification 100 chapter:
- the Designation of the Major Item involved
eg: Flight Controls - Flap Actuators
- or the location of the area affected,
eg: Fuselage - Aft Intermediate Section
Note: A/C Sections shall be identified by their name but never by their number (only known by Design
and Production but never by customers).
12-3-2-4 Modification Objective
Shall be a brief description of the objective to be attained on the aircraft. This shall be expressed in
the imperative form.
eg: Communications - Install Boomset
Flight Controls - Flap Actuators - Modify Hub Flange
This description shall not describe the reason for the MOD/MP, i.e. the origin of the problem or the
work content (this is covered by the Technical Repercussion Sheet - TRS).
12-3-3 Titles of Change Identification Number (CIN)
12-3-3-1 General
A CIN comprises a Modification Number and the associated MP number and these are inseparable.
The Modification Number may precede the MP number or vice versa.
Each CIN shall be allocated a significant title which reflects the purpose of the MP(s)/MOD(s).
CIN titles are used in Technical Publications (for highlights in Manuals, Service Bulletin titles, etc.), so
it is extremely important that both MP and MOD titles are significant and correct.
Several cases of association between MP and MOD may occur.
12-3-3-2 One MP = One MOD
The title of the MOD and the Subject of the MP shall be identical.
12-3-3-3 Two or More MP's = One MOD
The modification itself may carry a general title allocated by the General Modification Committee
(GMC) and each MP may have a different Subject.

Numbering/Naming
Page: 12 - 3
Issue: F Date: 3 May 2000

13-1 General
Service Bulletins (SB) are technical instruction documents issued to customers. There are several
types of AIB Service Bulletins:
eg: - Alert SBs.
- SBs raised to cover modifications to be retrofitted by customers.
- Inspection Service Bulletins (not further to a Mod).
- Evaluation Service Bulletins (nor further to a Mod).
- Service Bulletins raised by AIB to cover Vendor Service Bulletins.
- Simplified Service Bulletins.
- Advance Service Bulletins.
13-2 Numbering
Refer to Airbus Industrie Service Bulletin Guide.
13-3 Titles
All Service Bulletins raised to cover a single Mod/MP (CIN) shall be given the same title as the CIN
involved.
eg: Flight Controls - Flap actuactor
Modify hub flange
Where a Service Bulletin covers more than one CIN, or only part of a CIN, the SB title must be
adapted from the CIN title but shall still follow the basic principles set out in Chapter 12 of this ABD.

F - NON STANDARD ITEMS - STANDARD MAIN WORDS FOR FUNCTIONAL
DESIGNATIONS
This list provides:
1 - A basic list of Main Words for use in Component Functional Designations.
2 - A standard presentation of these Main Words, for use in all AIRBUS Projects, whatever the industrial
worksharing and/or transfers of responsibility, to obtain maximum consistency in wording content and
layout between:
- all labels: in the cockpit
stuck on the structure next to the equipment
- interior markings
- exterior markings
- messages on display units
- any lists of components using the FIN and functional designation
eg: Nomenclature of Principle Diagrams and Functional Diagrams
Aircraft Wiring List
Aircraft Maintenance Manual component location information
Consideration of above has led to widespread use of abbreviations, selected on the following basis and
order of priority:
1 - Abbreviations used in the cockpit.
2 - Abbreviations commonly used (eg: in System Description Notes - SDN, Technical Publications).
3 - Abbreviations which are considered to be useful and understandable, and therefore suitable for use
on placards, display units, etc.
4 - Abbreviations necessary to limit the main word to 20 characters.
Any Main Words not in the above three categories are left in full.
The abbreviations used are all approved in ABD0037 Airbus Approved Abbreviations Handbook (AAAH).
This list also includes Main Words used in the Airbus ATA 100 Breakdowns at 6 digit level for Assemblies or
Structural Items. These do not have FINs but their designations are constructed in the same manner as
those for items with FINs.
If necessary, the main words listed can be used with the word "Assy" (assembly). They can also be used in
the plural. Consequently, main words including the word "assy" are not included in the list, unless they
cannot be used without "assy".
The list does not include names of major assemblies, such as "aileron", "slat" or "spoiler", as these are listed
in Appendix D - Constituent Assemblies.
