Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) often deliver a Technical Support and Data Package (TSDP) that contains a cornucopia of documents. The relevant Test Specification data is obscured and difficult to ascertain within the large amount of data that is not relevant to the Test Specification.

The aim of this project is to update ARINC Report 625-3 to emphasize the importance that the OEM provides a Test Specification that is intelligible, unobscured, and complete as possible.

The role of the TSDP is to provide the minimal amount of data required to fully understand and implement the Test Specification. Only data that is pertinent to the Test Specification should be provided. It should be separate and independent of all non-pertinent data.
