Technical Documentation & Publishing

Documentation challenges

When creating technical publications such as catalogues, maintenance manuals, regulatory filings and training manuals, many legacy technical publishing systems require that data be pulled from multiple sources, a slow and error-prone process.

With disconnected data sources and difficulty finding the most relevant and up-to-date information, such documents typically require a long lead-time, are prone to errors, and are expensive to produce.

Technical Documentation & Publishing with Aras Innovator® and services from Javelin

  • Built on the Aras Innovator® platform, Aras Technical Documentation is a content authoring tool that takes a new approach to the creation of technical publications by using PLM content directly.
  • Developed in partnership with Orio (formerly Saab Original Parts), the web-based solution cuts out rewriting time and eliminates opportunities for error by using referenced PLM content in a modular fashion.
  • Additionally, notifications of engineering change orders (ECO) can automatically trigger document updates, ensuring that publications use the most relevant, up-to-date information.

Aras Innovator Documentation enables cross-discipline authoring, visualization, sharing and publishing of topics-based, modular documentation within a secure, managed environment.

  • PLM-based solution means document authoring teams have access to the latest PLM data in a single location.
  • Notifications triggered by ECOs ensure documents are composed of the most up-to-date, approved information
  • Use of embedded PLM content cuts out rewriting/rekeying time and eliminates opportunities for error.
