Autec manuals and production sheets

In Autec the manuals were produced using Adobe FrameMaker.

The continuous customization of the products required a great effort to be able to obtain manuals configured according to the customized product.

The company was oriented to the structured management of contents and had tried to make everything concrete but with tools that were not really structured.

Needs

The manuals had to be produced with a new environment while maintaining the quality and flexibility of the hand tool.

It was necessary to manage with great accuracy every single sentence and every single component of the manual.

This required a very onerous manual verification and approval cycle with unstructured tools.

The content management tool had to integrate with the ISO quality management system already in place in the company.

The manuals had to be part of the lean production initiative in which Autec was involved.

Solutions and benefits with EKR
