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).
The Suite supports ATA iSpec 2200 document types, Document Type Definition (DTD) customization, document bursting of page blocks, and Aircraft Maintenance and Task Oriented Support System (AMTOSS) management. Other Suite tools and utilities include the ability to load data or to import legacy ATA data. Easy to implement, maintain and use, the Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software set facilitates single or multiple ATA projects.
The challenge that Inmedius recognized and addressed was not only to develop programs that supported the key functions of ATA iSpec2200, but also to integrate each function. Processes are simplified. Communication within development groups is streamlined. Quality of information is enhanced. New efficiencies save time and money.
Only with an integrated, Web-based solution can rules established by project managers be so effectively and automatically carried out from start-up through authoring to final delivery, supporting the ATA iSpec2200 documentation lifecycle.
A true management system, the software’s extensive features provide a framework for controlling the development of technical data utilizing ATA iSpec 2200 publishing concepts. The robust software is easy-to-use and 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 for document granularity, 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. As an integrated solution, the authoring platform may be embedded in Manager, proving visibility and access to data for the benefit of authors and project managers. The comprehensive software provides unparalleled ease of use, while insuring that single or multiple projects are up and running quickly. Inserting unique AMTOSS numbers ensures valid anchor key values and references. Utilizing ATA structure rules maintains the integrity of the document.
