Intelligent screenshots with Callout Designer in SCHEMA ST4

In recent years, digital communication with and between products has continually increased. This is also the case for products from Bürkert Fluid Control Systems, a leading global manufacturer of measurement, control and regulation systems for fluids and gases.

The company’s technical writing department has been using our SCHEMA ST4 Component Content Management System for three years.

BSH and ST4: a new partnership brings interactivity to manuals

BSH Hausgeräte GmbH is Europe’s largest household appliance manufacturer, with brands such as Bosch and Siemens and products for all areas of everyday life. And because BSH relies on SCHEMA ST4, with 150 technical editors in various locations and around 100,000 “live” publications in up to 50 languages, it is also one of SCHEMA’s biggest customers. Networked home appliances have already been a reality for BSH for some years, and the company is now also preparing for its next developmental leap in technical documentation. If appliances communicate with you, the instructions need to be more than just words on a page – they need to get involved.

At the SCHEMA conference, Saskia Miller and Christina Steidle from BSH gave a presentation on why they decided to implement ST4 and how they are achieving this objective with the XML editing system.

A preview of our SCHEMA Conference 2018

As in previous years, the common thread that unites the various components of this year’s conference is the trend that is under way in the realm of technical documentation – namely moving away from analogue preparation methods, and proceeding via digital document storage through to the smart provision of information. The conference is an event that has now become a fixed point on the annual calendar of agents and decision-makers in the “tech doc” sector: the SCHEMA Conference in Nuremberg. This year, we are looking forward to welcoming clients, technical writers, experts and, last but not least, trendsetters and pioneers at the Nürnberger Conference Center (NCC Mitte) on 19 and 20 June.
