The S5000F specification is designed to include information to be fed back to Integrated Product Support (IPS) and other areas. One of the most important functions of the S5000F specification is the collection of usage and support period feedback data. The data collected enables fleet and support managers and technical system manufacturers to conduct a comprehensive usage and support performance analysis, as well as to improve the overall support service.

The purpose of using S5000F alone or together with the other S-Series IPS specifications is to obtain a structured way to handle the in-service (including operational and maintenance) data feedback between different stakeholders.
