GRIPS Architecture – Semantic Single Source Content Management
GRIPS follows an innovative semantic content management approach: information is structured and organized based on its type, its relation to object or product components, its variants and its language.
This information is not only interpretable and processable by people but also by processes and machines. The degree of automation and reusability of the information, including its translations, increases, costs decrease and processes are accelerated. All publications (such as user and service documentation) can be automatically generated and prepared for all channels, media and business systems. This works both from producer to customer as well as in reverse through feedback mechanisms.
Future reliability and investment protection
By recording and modeling information in a product-centered semantic fashion, GRIPS can also meet your future requirements without the need to restructure, migrate or adapt the metadata for your content base.
Example: To help technicians carry out installation and maintenance work with smart glasses or augmented reality apps in the future, GRIPS can manage 3D models for your products as well as information on spatial orientation (angle, rotation, etc.). This allows the glasses to display assembly instructions in the exact right location in the operator’s field of vision.
Digital continuity of information
Product development and lifecycles are getting shorter and the number of product variants is growing. This leaves less time for the preparation of the necessary product information.
GRIPS supports the automatic reuse of information from engineering, software development and production including 3D models. Thus, each unit of information needs to be recorded only once in one place and it will be available for all publications, media and communication channels. This digital continuity reduces time to market, lowers information costs, improves information consistency and prevents information gaps due to design changes.
