Technical product documentation and specification

Status : Current   Published : December 2017


What is BS 8888?

BS 8888:2017 is the newly revised up-to-date technical product documentation and specification standard that brings together, in one easy-to-follow document, all international standards needed to prepare technical product specifications (TPS), in accordance with geometrical product specification principles.

BS 8888 helps you to make better use of the ISO system of product specification because it covers more than just engineering drawing: instead you will find all aspects of technical product specification, including, for instance, the use of 3D CAD models to define component geometry.

Benefits of BS 8888

  • BS 8888 ensures you will:
  • Have access to one reference source with all information
  • Speak the same language when specifying and graphically representing products
  • Are precise in their application by leaving no room for misinterpretation
  • Help the smooth transfer of design concept to manufacturing process
  • Shorten product development time
  • Increase speed to market

 Why has BS 8888 been upgraded?

 With the latest revision of BS 8888, there have been several significant developments.

 Firstly, the standard has been restructured to make it easier to find key information and to improve the flow of requirements to reflect how they will be used by designers and engineers in practice

 Secondly, more information has been included on model based definition, i.e. the use of 3D models and CAD (computer-aided design)

Thirdly, additional information has been provided around the requirements for surface texture and datums.
