Systematic Authoring

ROVEMA decided to buy the content management system TIM by Fischer Computertechnik due to the enormously increasing quantity of publications and the large number of languages. The technical writers are today generating all operating manuals structured and module-oriented with TIM Topic-based. Using a consequent unified content strategy, the modules are created in a way which allows generating customer specific documents by means of an improved publication process. Costs are reduced.

Cost Reduction up to 50 Per Cent

ROVEMA delivers operating manuals for their packaging machines in 20 languages, with increasing tendency. Peter Brust, Manager Technical Documentation: „After already nine months the use of the XML Content Management System TIM is measurable. Within this short period we have achieved a significant reduction (up to 50 %) of translation costs due to the pre-translation in TIM and it is evident that further cost reductions are possible!" The manuals are translated with the translation memory system SDL Trados® and published in PDF as well as in HTML.

Spain, the USA and Integration in PLM

ROVEMA is planning to use TIM also in Spain and the USA based on a Citrix Terminal Server Solution. Furthermore, it is planned to use the TIM Variant Management and to integrate TIM into the PLM system PLM-Easy®.
