MIL-STD-31000B : DOD Standard Practice Technical Data Packages
A set of technical data generated from master technical data. Typically derivative technical data is created to change its format to suit a different purpose. For example converting master, native format data to neutral or viewable data (e.g. STEP, PDF, etc.) so as to allow it to be read by a wider range of software applications. Changes to derivative technical data originate on the master technical dataset.
