As you develop products, a great number of documents are created, edited, reviewed, and approved by knowledge workers in support of the product cycle. In delivering those products to market, documentation is a key part of the package. Product development and delivery requires proper labeling, user documentation and, in many cases, completed regulatory filings.
As products and markets become more diverse globally, it becomes more difficult to keep authors in-sync with product and market changes, especially under the pressure of ever-tightening schedules. When you bring document and content management into the product lifecycle management (PLM) process, you can manage documentation proactively, not as an afterthought.
The Teamcenter capabilities for content and document management bring the authoring process into the same PLM environment that manages the overall product development process. Whether you are creating simple, but important, business documents or generating complex service manuals, authors can stay in-sync with product content and changes, so you can produce more accurate and higher quality documents while remaining on-schedule and on-budget.
The Teamcenter central PLM system transcends traditional organizational and process boundaries involved with document management and technical publishing software. Teamcenter includes your company’s authors within the same collaborative, knowledge management environment used for product development. Authors can participate in the same processes, such as change management and product launch, to ensure the whole product package comes together on-time and on-budget.
With Teamcenter, you can contribute to and tap into the enterprise’s product knowledge without leaving your preferred technical publishing software, such as Microsoft Office. With an advanced MS Office interface, you can work with Teamcenter from within your familiar applications. You can also use structured languages such as SGML and XML to generate content as manageable components linked to product content that can be re-used, and re-purposed for multi-version publications. Support for Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) and S1000D enables compliant authoring and standards for data exchange.
