Technical Publishing

Creating the supporting technical documentation for A&D systems requires collaboration and input from many different companies and teams. 

Our solution suite, which supports S1000D, brings the documentation process into the PLM environment, allowing direct use of engineering source data and synchronizing document development with product development to ensure that publications are always up-to-date with product changes. 

Our advanced technical publication environment allows documents to be easily tailored by market, language or product.

Today’s aerospace and defense programs are highly complex, typically involving a large number of suppliers and partners. Just as these companies often use different design tools, they may also use different authoring tools and systems to create their portion of supporting documentation. This has made it difficult to create publications such as consolidated technical manuals that require input from multiple teams. 

Standards such as S1000D have been established to streamline these efforts by means of a common source database (CSDB) that standardizing the authoring, exchange and publication of technical documentation. Our technical publishing solution, which supports S1000D, brings the documentation process into the PLM environment to create a single-environment approach that lets content authors directly access product source data, use it to create content, and then keep that content in sync with changes to the product. 

Our structured technical publication environment reduces the effort needed to generate accurate, effective documents that can be tailored by market, language, or product.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Artwork Design and Proofing

Artwork design and packaging development requires constant communication between vendors and designers.Teamcenter Advanced Proofing can help you develop artwork and packaging more efficiently using advanced markup capabilities such as collaborative review/markup, deep zoom, color separation, and a wide range of supported file types. Comments and annotations on the file are managed and captured automatically. By collaborating on artwork design and proofing within the lifecycle, Teamcenter improves the timeliness and quality of product artwork and packaging.

Bill of Materials Management

Create, manage, and maintain operational and service documentation in the context of the engineering bill-of-material (eBOM) and  service bill-of-material (sBOM). Link published content with supporting engineering data.

Common Source Database

Exchange and publish industry-standard documents, service bulletins, and parts catalogs by authoring and managing S1000D data modules and ICN information.

Configure and repurpose dynamic documents

Product documents need to be accurate for the products they describe. Using Teamcenter Content Management, you can configure your documents by classification and effectivities, and also by the product options and variants used by engineering. You can also use conditional XML capabilities like inline effectivity, DITA values, and keyrefs to manage the XML content within topics and data modules. These options provide you more reuse and consistency in content, while delivering product-specific documents.

Document Authoring Tool Integrations

Author and edit technical documentation using Microsoft Office templates submitted directly into review and approval workflows. Enable widespread collaboration and rapid adoption.

Format and preview automatically using stylesheets

Teamcenter Content Management provides DITA and S1000D stylesheets for automatic formatting of your content for both HTML and PDF output. You can create additional stylesheets, edit and manage them, and then apply them to your content based on customer or document types. Preview of PDF and publish direct to web directories are also available, making it easy to see the impact of your edits prior to final publication.

Structured Content Management

Efficiently manage product and asset documentation to increase reuse of high-value content in multiple document types. Ensure consistency across compliance standards.
