BETHESDA, Md. (June 28, 2013) — The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) has released Version 6.5 of the Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES).
Included in PIES 6.5 is full support for the exchange of coded product attributes, increased capability to express market copy, and additions to the recognized media types of digital assets, AAIA said.
The documentation of PIES 6.5 has been restructured to eliminate ambiguity and inconsistency, according to the AAIA. The Market Copy, Product Attribute and Kit segments have been restructured for added capability, it said.
Although PIES 6.5 contains almost all of the same elements as previous versions, according to the AAIA, the re-sequencing of specific elements means that users should take care to update PIES mapping and software tools.
