Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
The amount of complexity inside Industrial Machinery and Heavy Equipment is growing at a pace never seen before thanks to Industry 4.0, customization and globalization. Bringing your document development and management processes into your PLM environment enables you to address this complexity with a more efficient and accurate development process that avoids the duplication errors and out-of-date information caused by manual, paper based tasks. This solution also enables you to generate more rich 2D and 3D content, making it easier to give end users information in the media they choose.
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Create and publish parts catalogs in printed, web or electronic media by reusing CAD or PLM information such as bill-of-materials, CAD, and JT.
Author and illustrate service and operations manuals and other technical publications using engineering source data. This allows for authoring of structured XML and 2D/3D illustrations based on imported data.
Enables Microsoft Office authoring and editing of machinery and equipment requirements and service and support manuals using templates to place directly into workflows or reviews.
Manage key text and illustration components such as service and support bulletins, manuals and directories so you can write and reuse content to create and publish multiple document types automatically.
Manage machinery and equipment technical documentation within the context of and aligned with the product and process configuration and change control to enable greater change impact and update analysis.
Manage digital documentation such as manufacturing and assembly instructions and service publications within a product and plant lifecycle context to collaborate and comprehensively access real-time product and plant data.
In the Industrial Machinery & Heavy Equipment market, complexity is now the norm. This is due to trends such as machine customization, globalization of heavy equipment and machinery manufacturers and governmental regulations. Easily accessible technical documentation that is accurate to specific product configurations is critical to addressing these trends. Ensuring globally distributed content with local languages, providing enterprise-wide access to service instructions, and creating linkages with engineering data require information contained in the Digital Innovation Platform. Being able to start documentation earlier in the product development process, with immediate access to complex and rapidly changing product source data, generates documentation that helps speed up the development process and enables industrial machinery and heavy equipment manufacturers to deliver their machines on time.
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.
