PAdb & PIES Schema: A New and Powerful Tool Used Between Trader Partners!
Designed to exchange information about fit, form and function of thousands of automotive products, PAdb standardizes the way product-specific performance and physical attributes are exchanged between trading partners. This allows for a consistent, common and predictable set of product attributes. For example, the Product Attribute Database was created so that any two suppliers / manufacturers selling the same type of clutch kit have a common set of attributes to describe torque capacity increase or clutch diameter in inches and millimeters.
Critically important is that Auto Plus is fully compliant with the PAdb and is completely integrated into the PIES Attribute Segment.
