Their current source can be multiple spreadsheets and uncontrolled Word documents. The existing tools and methods can be time-consuming, with many instances of content duplication.

Manufacturers realise the importance of intelligent, integrated content systems that can reuse and leverage data, thus saving time and money.

Investing in integrated content systems saves time and money by:

  • –  Quickly and easily configuring new models or variants.
  • –  Optimising maintenance procedures.
  • –  Streamlining your procedures.
  • –  Quickly producing user guides and other support documentation.
  • –  Reduces delivery time (manufacturer to customer)
  • –  Increases operational effectiveness and reduces downtime.
  • –  Increases maintainer and operator safety and skills.
  • –  It is cost-effective, easy to use and fast to implement.

Industry specifications such as Raildex (rail), Shipdex (ship) and S1000D (automotive) and technology supporting these specifications allow manufacturers and operators to obtain the many benefits detailed above.
