This session showcases how documentation for one of the biggest auto manufacturers in the world was to migrated to DITA allowing for publishing of hundreds of manuals in over a dozen languages.
Vehicle documentation (owner’s manuals, user guides, quick reference guides, etc) are as crucial to a car as the brakes, engine, or chassis. Without these a car is not finished, and cannot be shipped and sold. Documentation failure can cost over $100,000 per MINUTE if it results in a line being shut down.
Learn about the journey and discovery of concerns, project scope definition and change, trials and tribulations of getting tools to do what was needed, and the net results. Along the way a component content management system, author tools, review processes, and much more had to be planned, tested, implemented, and supported.
