Committee 2-16 Product Data Description (Laminar View) Subcommittee
Chair Karen E. McConnell, Northrop Grumman Corporation
Vice Chair Gary J. Carter, Fujitsu Network Communications
Staff Liaison Nancy Jaster
Committee Charter This subcommittee is responsible for the maintenance and further development of a suite of standards known as "Offspring" of GenCAM and ODB++ formats. It is documented in the standard series IPC-258X. The series consists of eight standards ranging from IPC-2581 (Offspring generic standard) to the sectionals, IPC-2582 through IPC-2588. A close correlation exists between this subcommittee and the Hierarchical View Product Data Description Subcommittee (2-14) in that each series identifies similar products but uses a different description methodology. The IPC-251X series looks at the product through the entire thickness while the IPC-258X series provides descriptions one layer at a time.
