The BoostAero initiative is using ebXML V2 for eSupplyChain exchanges between participating European and American Aerospace and Defense companies. Following the best international standardization practices, the Business Requirement Specifications have been submitted to the UN/CEFACT by the ASD (AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe) and the AIA (IS Aerospace Industries Association). Three companies have so far attained certification for their ebXML products including Axway, Cleo and SRCI. Cleo supports the AS/400 environment. Axway was recently retained to manage the exchanges of the French SIMMAD (Ministry for Defense) with its external and internal suppliers, through its Synchrony platform.
