Technical Publications

Industry Challenge:

Technical Publications in Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, and Heavy Manufacturing is faced with a unique challenge - maintaining products to the highest standards for long periods of time. Technology changes at a rapid rate, and vital product information becomes locked into outdated systems and proprietary formats.

To facilitate the digital exchange of technical and graphical data in a digital format, the S1000D, the Automotive, and the Air Transport Association industries specifies Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) format, an open international standard designed to enable seamless transfer of drawings and data from one system to another.
