May 2017 PIES PAdb Update

padb

As of the February 2017 release, the PAdb covers more than 96 percent of total product sales mix which is over 110,000 attributes across 12,000+ Part Terminologies. See a full breakdown of covered attributes and the counts by part terminologies.

The Product Attribute database (PAdb) is an auto care industry standard reference database to be used in conjunction with the Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES). The PAdb standardizes the way product-specific performance and physical attributes are exchanged between trading partners. The PAdb defines the way trading partners exchange information about the form, fit and function of thousands of automotive products—making that information consistent and predictable across the industry. Rich, complete and accurate product attribute information is an essential component of marketing any product successfully. All customers—professional shop and retail consumers—rely on robust product attributes to make informed decisions and select the most appropriate product for their needs. Performance and physical attributes address the objective differences between two similar products. This information enables customers to make informed and knowledgeable decisions, fully aware of the differences between similar products. The PAdb is available to subscribers only. Use the download link on the right to access the latest release of the PAdb. Change requests and new attribute requests can also be made through the product attribute user interface.

The Auto Care Association will continue to update and maintain the PAdb by way of industry contribution and a review and oversight method. Entity relationship (ER) diagrams for the PAdb are available here.  Visit the Technology Learning Lab for the latest industry guide and help information or download a sample PAdb packet.

Version 2.06 available

After a cleanup of the PAdb and a restructuring of its database, PAdb version 2.06 is available (2.06 PAdb Documentation).

Part Term coverage now totals 12,422 Part Terms covered. The PAdb library now covers 109,876 attributes.
