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.
