Lifecycle, Browser-Based Solution Supports ATA iSpec 2200
The industry's most comprehensive set of tools, the Inmedius® ATA Publishing Suite™ is a browser-based solution to successfully manage the lifecycle of ATA iSpec2200 technical documentation for commercial aircraft. The software set supports and integrates the key functions of managing, authoring, viewing, and publishing ATA data, while providing precise control over documentation delivery, including support for PDF files and Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM).
A true management system, the software's extensive features provide a framework for controlling the development of technical data utilizing ATA publishing concepts. Easy-to-use, the robust software integrates authoring through publishing. With its strong, process-driven business approach, Manager extends the functionality of its document repository to provide ATA project setup and workflow capabilities. In an integrated environment, Manager facilitates AMTOSS numbering, bursting of content, PDF print output, and customization of the entire process in a web-based repository.
AuthorPro is an ATA iSpec 2200 compliant solution for editing, managing and publishing documents. The standards-based, scalable PDF publishing capabilities are embedded in the editor to work in concert with ATApublisher and have no third-party dependencies or license requirements. AuthorPro enables authors to concentrate on technical content development instead of the final formatted and published outputs.
Publisher easily and efficiently publishes ATA iSpec 2200 documents – including Aircraft Maintenance Manuals (AMMs), Component Maintenance Manuals (CMMs) and Service Bulletins (SBs) – and transforms them into common print output formats. The standards-based, scalable PDF publishing capabilities of Publisher are fully integrated and work in concert with the ATAauthorPro™ host application, as an add-on software module. There are no other third-party licenses or proprietary formatting languages required.
The 100% browser-based, WYSIWYG editor considerably lowers the total cost of ownership, while providing authoring that conforms to ATA iSpec 2200 requirements. The software provides a sophisticated and intuitive environment; enabling authors to concentrate on technical content development, instead of the final formatted and published outputs.
Information users feel at ease and proficient in a familiar browser-based environment; complete with annotations, bookmarks, search, and other advanced features like referencing or linking to external data. An IETP makes it unnecessary to install costly software on the user's machine, allowing work in a Web-based environment. A flexible publishing capability, to see a similar format on screen as the PDF, ensures a familiar look for the user throughout the viewing process. Output from Interact has a similar look and feel as ATA paper documents.
