Abstract : This document serves as a guideline to evaluate computer- aided design (CAD) systems for compliance to reference (1), MlL-D-28000, Digital Representation for Communication of Product Data: IGES Application Subsets and IGES Application Protocols and user-defined requirements. These references define the requirements to be met for product definition data exchange in the format specified in the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES), reference (2) or The user of this test plan, hereafter referred to as 'customer', is any DoD activity requesting the evaluation of CAD systems specifying compliance to a class in MIL-D- 28000 and to the user-defined requirements. The customer selects the class in MIL-D-28000 to be tested. The decision whether reference (2) or (3) shall be used depends upon the class selected. Some classes specify reference (2) while others specify reference (3). Reference (4) can be applied whenever reference (3) is specified since IGES is upwardly compatible. This test plan may be offered to potential contractors to evaluate their processors if they wish to exchange CAD data in IGES format, compliant to a selected class in NIL-D-28000 and the user-defined requirements, with the customer or other contractors.
