IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of information and analytics, today
announced the addition of IHS content including IHS Standards Expert, the
industry-leading standards management solution, to IHS Goldfire’s expansive
collection of pre-indexed technical knowledge.

IHS Goldfire, the platform for optimal decision making, is powered by
state-of-the-art semantic technologies that allow engineers and other
technical personnel to quickly find relevant answers across multiple
languages, identify insights across disparate data sources, and locate experts
both inside and outside their organizations in order to more rapidly make
informed product decisions.

Out-of-the-box, IHS Goldfire makes a wide variety of pre-indexed technical and
industry content available to its users. This content now includes IHS
Standards Expert, a robust, easy-to-use standards management solution backed
by the world's largest collection of engineering standards and related
documents from more than 370 standards developing organizations (SDOs)
worldwide, including international, regional, national, local and corporate
sources, plus key government and military agencies.

“Standards play a critical role in helping companies accelerate innovation and
preserve institutional knowledge,” says Chad Hawkinson, vice president,
product design at IHS. “With the addition of IHS Standards Expert, IHS
Goldfire gives engineers the ability to quickly search across more than 1.6
million standards, codes, specifications, and related publications to identify
current accepted best practices for engineering technologies that affect
product or process design and development.”

In addition, the latest IHS Goldfire release indexes and makes semantically
available two IHS content sources critical to enabling aerospace and defense
companies to ensure regulatory compliance, control maintenance costs and
reduce risks of error or aircraft downtime:

  *IHS ESDU, a collection that includes engineering methods, data and
    software used in the design of aircraft or aircraft components and in the
    development of process engineering systems; and
  *AV-Data, the go-to source for worldwide aviation regulatory, safety and
    advisory information including data and relevant information from the FAA,

All IHS Goldfire users have visibility into IHS Standards Expert, ESDU and
