General Electric: write, update and translate manuals and procedures

GENERAL ELECTRIC, a Calenco reference

This division of General Electric installs power plants around the world.

It must therefore design, draft and maintain complex technical facility documents, written by multiple contributors and in different languages, throughout the commissioning process.

Composed of hundreds of pages, with options and variants, its manuals were originally designed by assembling Word files. Updating them was difficult.

The solution: a dynamic document exchange interface

General Electric has established a central library of more than a thousand test procedures, thanks to the Calenco solution. It can then, very simply, build a contextual manual on demand , by selecting the constituent elements of the central concerned.

A first version, blank, including the checklists of installations and their subsets, is automatically generated. Users enter criteria, options and variants, using online forms to dynamically generate the specific document for each power plant.

On sites, the operators enter the checklists via a Web entry interface. Manuals are generated again in different versions each time an information is updated .

Result : reliability, responsiveness.

General Electric thus guarantees the reliability of the technical information provided to its customers. His documents are now free of copy / paste errors.

Its responsiveness is accelerated by the automatic layout.
