Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Inc, has selected Arbortext software for the production of maintenance manuals, parts catalogs, and flight manuals in an effort to streamline the way their service organization creates and publishes information. Cessna plans to offer customized manuals and catalogs so that pilots, field service personnel, and mechanics can quickly locate information without sifting through irrelevant content.
Cessna Aircraft Company manufactures aircrafts and each model has up to ten manuals that provide detailed information for pilots and field service personnel about the maintenance and operation of a particular aircraft. Some manuals are 10,000 pages long, which mean updates can be a slow, costly challenge. These manuals are also published in different formats based on user requirements and federal regulations. For example, the FAA requires flight manuals be published to paper while field service personnel may prefer maintenance manuals be available on CD-ROM or the intranet.
