Technical Publishing for Automotive & Transportation

Integrated document management and technical publishing solutions managed within your PLM platform.

The complexity of developing and revising technical documentation for global vehicle programs is increasing for automotive companies. Technical publishing solutions maintained within the PLM environment allow your content writers to significantly reduce time and effort needed to update documents. In an era when most auto companies are making investments to enable products to support connectivity, fuel economy and safety requirements, keeping technical documents up-to-date with product changes is key. By using our advanced Microsoft Office® interface in a structured technical publication environment that enables XML authoring and illustration, technical writers can easily tailor documents for a particular market, language or product.

The automotive industry is increasingly relying on global platforms to cut costs as millions of vehicles share parts. Today, the industry is investing heavily in expensive technologies to improve connectivity, fuel efficiency, and safety-related solutions. Global platforms provide the economy of scale to spread the product development and manufacturing costs of bringing these new technologies to market.

One of the complexities related to global platforms is to find an enterprise solution to produce a variety of technical documents such as product descriptions, operating procedures, maintenance and repair procedures, parts catalogs, marketing literature and other technical documentation incorporating information from globally dispersed engineering and manufacturing data. The challenge for your technical writers is to start earlier in the product development process, collaborate directly with your engineering staffs, and have immediate access to complex and rapidly changing product source data.

Siemens PLM Software offers integrated document management and technical publishing solutions that combine the power of the world’s leading global PLM platform with sophisticated and easy-to-use authoring tools all in one system.
