What is the product classification database (PCdb)?
The product classification
database (PCdb) was developed
primarily to support ACES and PIES. The PCdb is a critical component of coding
catalog applications data as it addresses the need to categorize groups of auto
care market replacement parts and commodities. The PCdb standardizes automotive
parts nomenclature and validates parts that are used in multiple positions on
the same vehicle, resulting in more consistent and accurate application data.
The PCdb is used to classify products in the Product Information
Exchange Standard (PIES) and
as a supporting tool for implementation of the iShop Standard.
