Enable S1000D, S2000M and SCORM Compliance
Stringent information delivery standards such as S1000D, S2000M and SCORM are becoming common place in the worldwide A&D markets and are forcing suppliers to accommodate those requirements to remain competitive, or even to survive. However, increased product complexity, a distributed supply chain and customer demand for real-time, accurate information are forcing companies to retool how they author, manage, publish and deliver their product information.
Traditional tools and approaches within the product information delivery environments have been outpaced by the expanding multimedia formats customers and suppliers demand information to be provided in. As a result, the S1000D technical publications and S2000M provisioning processes have become bottlenecks in many A&D product delivery processes, impacting market opportunity, profitability, service and training revenues, and customer satisfaction.
What’s needed is a solution that enables technical writers, contractors and suppliers to collaboratively create and manage a single source of complex product information that can be used across all required media formats and geographic borders.
PTC's integral Product Development System (PDS) coupled with the product information delivery capabilities of the Arbortext software for Aerospace & Defense is the industry's first and only solution for S1000D. This solution enables suppliers to collaboratively author, manage, publish and dynamically deliver complex A&D product information from a single-content source. PTC’s turn-key, out of the box Arbortext software contains the full set of capabilities required to create, publish, and deliver information, compliant with S1000D, S2000M, and SCORM.
