ISO/TS 13399-72:2016 defines the necessary text elements of a drawing frame and determines a standardized data exchange format. Therefore, the effort is reduced for the maintenance of documentation because the content of a drawing header is mated into a specific drawing frame by means of using XML technology and an individual mapping table. The benefit of this concept for manufacturer/supplier and end user is the advantage of a central maintenance of the appropriate templates.

It covers the following:

- identification and definition of the data fields;

- identification and definition of the structure of the data fields;

- structure of the data exchange file.

The standardization of drawing formats, e.g. drawing frame, structure of the bill of material, are outside the scope of ISO/TS 13399-72:2016 which is rather more intended to standardize the data exchange of the product documentations.

The following are outside the scope of ISO/TS 13399-72:2016;

- layer settings as defined in ISO/TS 13399‑70;

- structure of the tool documentation as defined in ISO/TS 13399‑71;

- applications where these standard data may be stored or referenced;

- concept of the classification of cutting tool data and their properties;

- concept of the design of 2D drawings for cutting tools;

- concept of the design of 3D models for cutting tools;

- application data for the use of those cutting tools;

- information about the reconditioning of cutting tools;

- information about additional application and usage data (e.g. coolant supply).
