SCHEMA and DAIKIN – smart meets cool

What do SCHEMA and your weekend shopping have in common? – It’s simple: When you reach into that refrigerator in the comfortable air-conditioned supermarket, it’s very likely to contain several pieces of DAIKIN technology. DAIKIN is the world’s leading manufacturer of heat pumps, ventilation systems and air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. The multinational Japanese company with headquarters in Osaka and 67,000 employees worldwide offers solutions for hotels, office buildings and supermarkets, and also for domestic use. Plus: DAIKIN has chosen to use SCHEMA ST4 and the Content Delivery Server to create smart, interactive manuals.

SCHEMA ST4 for everybody who needs it

Who could do with a little more SCHEMA ST4 in their professional life? But only a little bit more? For example, maybe only the approval process is relevant to one colleague, while somebody else wants to be informed about publications and translations and another person just wants to request the creation of a single datasheet. SCHEMA ST4 is intentionally very comprehensive so that it can meet the demands of all the everyday tasks involved in the technical writing process. With workflow automation, you can make sure that colleagues only have access to the parts of our component content management system that they really need. Continue reading

Automatic consistency between documentation and development? BIOTRONIK shows you how

When creating software documentation, one thing’s for sure: ensuring that interface terms in the software match the technical documentation presents a particular challenge for technical writers. If a term changes on the software interface, it must also be changed in the documentation. The same applies to adjustable values on the software interface, which are often changed just before development is complete. When there are several different versions of the software and the documentation, updating the changes is a cumbersome task which often involves a separate editing process. Continue reading

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 Ingelfingen-based family business was founded over 70 years ago and since then it has developed a wide variety of products and applications for fluids. The company’s technical writing department has been using our SCHEMA ST4 Component Content Management System for three years. At the last SCHEMA Conference, Gudrun Krebs-Bothner and Ingrid Eichholz from Bürkert gave a talk entitled “The Living Screenshot – Intelligent Callout Graphics”, in which they demonstrated how they use ST4 to modularise user interface text from screenshots.

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. In other words, they need to be able to respond interactively to your input. 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.
