Taking flight – with confidence
Projects in the area of aviation, space travel and military operations are carried out by international consortia that collaborate across borders and languages. In addition, clients in this area require a standard information structure that is not tied to specific suppliers of individual products and components.
Both of these factors require a great deal of standardized sharing of information with a project-specific life cycle. This information is stored in a common data pool for use as a standard data source.
Large projects are developed in consortia made up of many partners, in which the seamless exchange of information and progress monitoring are critically important. Collaboration portals make sharing and merging information easy and create transparency regarding the current project status.
Modular manufacturing and information processes function only on the basis of a common information structure that is defined by various specifications.
S1000D and other standards thus form the basic foundation for documentation projects in the military and aerospace sectors.
Dual use of information
Most manufacturers in the aerospace industry conduct both civilian as well as military projects. Intelligent information processes let you build bridges between the two camps: multichannel publications in any number of specification-compliant versions allow both single sourcing and dual use of your information simultaneously.
GRIPS (Global Realtime Information Processing Solution) supports specific solutions for all specifications from the start. Content can be published to the required specification version at any time.
With MindReader author support, you can access established phrasing and terminology in real time as you type. MindReader also supports Simplified English, letting you write consistently using controlled language. MindReader supports authoring on platforms such as GRIPS, various XML editors and Word.
The TermStar terminology management system supports and monitors the use of correct terminology. TermStar is built into both GRIPS (Global Realtime Information Processing Solution) and MindReader (author support) and also supports Simplified English.
