Modern technical documentation solution

Traditional technical documentation solutions have been lagging behind the rapid transformation of the manufacturing industry in recent years. This transformation (sometimes referred to as Industry 4.0) requires modern technical documentation platforms. In addition, these platforms must easily provide dynamic, modular, and contextualized content. Paligo is an SaaS-based cutting-edge Component Content Management System that provides all of this in an all-in-one platform.

The GUI is easy to learn and easy to work with. An extremely potent CCMS.

Consistency and Accuracy with Structured Content

Structured Authoring in Paligo provides a rich semantic content model to support the most complex product documentation. Authors get assistance in following a robust document structure. They are also able to adhere to regulations like the ANSI Z535, with a full and customizable set of safety-related elements and components. You can create templates for common structures like Installation, Operation, Commissioning, and Maintenance documentation. Additionally, you can have your own custom writing rules automatically applied with Paligo’s powerful Schematron feature.

Reuse content across multiple product lines

Product lines in manufacturing often share similar functionality, engineering components, safety information, and more. Paligo provides a powerful set of content reuse features that make it easy to create all these variants from the same single source. For example, this includes modular topic components, conditional profiling, variables, and reusable text snippets, among other things.

Single sourcing for manufacturing

When working with complex documentation, it can be difficult to keep track of all the different components. However, the Paligo CCMS provides a single source for all your content. Smart content management features including “where used” functionality, taxonomy categorization, etc., make it easy to find any item that needs updating. Furthermore, product updates, new regulations, or any other changes stay consistent across all your documentation.

Single-sourcing eliminates redundancy, increases efficiency, and makes it easier to manage your technical documentation.

Smart Translation Management

Translation is often a required part of the documentation process in the manufacturing industry. For example, all companies operating or distributing products in the EU are required to follow the Machinery directive of the EU. And this, of course, includes products documented in the local language. Manuals often require publishing in up to 20-40 languages.

Obviously, this can be time-consuming, expensive, and difficult to manage.

Paligo makes this process both easier and more cost-effective with translation management features. These support all commonly translated languages, including bi-directional and 16-byte languages. Also, with full support for open standards like XLIFF, Paligo works with any TMS (Translation Memory System) and language service provider on the market. There are even direct integrations with translation systems for an end-to-end workflow. In addition, the REST API allows you to integrate with any translation system.

Efficient and secure global collaboration

Global collaboration is an important factor in the success of many manufacturing companies. Parts of operations may be outsourced to different countries to take advantage of local talent and resources.

Paligo allows for seamless global communication and collaboration. Users of Paligo can work simultaneously on the same publications, accessing the individual topics. And with powerful version management made specifically for technical documentation, you always have detailed audit trails to keep track of who made changes and when.
