Inmedius®, Inc. recently launched the comprehensive Inmedius ATA Publishing Suite™, a browser-based solution to successfully manage the lifecycle of ATA iSpec 2200 technical documentation for commercial aircraft. ATA iSpec 2200 is a global aviation industry standard for the content, structure, and electronic exchange of aircraft engineering, maintenance, and flight operations information. The Inmedius software set supports and integrates the key functions of managing, authoring, viewing and publishing ATA data, while providing precise control over documentation delivery, including support for PDF files and Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM).
“With the Inmedius ATA software suite, processes are simplified, the quality of information is enhanced and communication is streamlined, leading to new efficiencies,” explained Sean Rushing, Product and Services Director, Inmedius. “The browser-based solution markedly decreases the barriers of implementation through its robust capabilities, ease of use and low total cost of ownership.”
Easy to implement, maintain and use, the ATA Publishing Suite’s modules can be purchased as a fully-integrated production set or as individual components. Inmedius ATAmanager™ is the document repository, providing comprehensive project setup and workflow capabilities for controlling the creation of technical data utilizing ATA publishing concepts. Intuitive content creation software, ATAauthorPro™ XE is a 100% browser-based, WYSIWYG editor. The robust authoring solution provides unparalleled ease of use, while insuring that single or multiple ATA projects are up and running quickly. With ATAinteract™, users rapidly view and share interactive electronic manuals. Output from Interact has the same look and feel as ATA paper documents.
“The challenge that Inmedius recognized and addressed was not only to develop programs that supported the key functions of ATA iSpec 2200, but also to integrate each function,” stated Gary L. Schaffer, Inmedius President and CEO. “Only with an integrated solution can rules established by project managers be so effectively and automatically carried out from project start-up through authoring to final delivery. Together, these innovative, performance-oriented applications cultivate, organize and disseminate data and technical information assets, supporting the ATA technical documentation lifecycle.”
That ATA Publishing Suite facilitates Aircraft Maintenance and Task Oriented Support System (AMTOSS) management, document bursting of page blocks, and Document Type Definition (DTD) customization. In addition, the Inmedius software supports ATA iSpec 2200 document types, including; Aircraft Maintenance (AMM), Component Maintenance Manual (CMM), Abbreviated Component Manual (ACMM), Illustrated Parts List (IPL), and Service Bulletin Documents (SB).
A member of the ATA e-Business Program, Inmedius will offer system demonstrations at the ATA e-Business Forum, May 17-19 in Seattle, WA. To learn more, or to request an Inmedius ATA Publishing Suite brochure, visit www.inmediusATA.com.
