Electronic manuals are available in Microsoft
Word and Adobe Acrobat PDF format from within the eSPEC application. Due to the
proprietary nature of some of the material contained within the manual, suppliers must
login to the system before being able to access system documentation. To view the
manual, login using your eSPEC userID and password and then select Help from the taskbar
along the left side of the screen.
Different CAD systems often require different
file formats. International uses Unigraphics V18 and supports UG, Parasolid, IGES, STEP,
and CGM within eSPEC. If you're not sure which format you need, try
consulting with your Information Technology (IT) group to find an appropriate format. The
most compatible formats with International's systems are UG and Parasolid.
International's CAD requirements are located on this site under System Requirements.
eSPEC allows everyone at a company to see all
documents sent to anyone at that company within the last 60 days. In case of an
emergency or in the case that someone goes on vacation, other people from a company can
access information, allowing for greater versatility.
Often, the drawings that a supplier requires to complete an RFQ need to be translated
to a format other than International's native UG format so that our suppliers can read
them. The drawings that are attached to your document may be in the process of being
converted. The eSPEC online system will notify you with an email when your document is
completed and posted to your home page. Please wait until you recieve this notification
before attempting to retrieve your document.
