DITA and new App for TIM 4.0

With the new distribution portal TIM-InfoCenter and the new TIM App Fischer Computertechnik FCT AG offers two innovative solutions for the worldwide distribution of relevant, current product information and documents. Therefore, the software producer for editing and content management systems takes up a key challenge of our time and meets the demands of today's content management systems to provide any information at any time and any place.

Fischer Computertechnik FCT AG (FCT AG) extended with the development of the new distribution portal TIM InfoCenter and the new TIM App their innovative content management system TIM 4.0 for easy creation of sophisticated product documentation. Therefore, the company from Lake Constance offers its customers another way to distribute their valuable information. The new distribution portal TIM-InfoCenter specifically provides documents, images, videos, etc. from TIM 4.0 and, in addition, serves as a platform for product information, spare parts information, project documents or brochures. Customers or service employees have access to this portal via customer portals, service information systems (SOAP interface) or via browser application (HTML5) The new TIM App allows quick access from mobile devices to the distributor portal thanks to modern search methods and taxonomies or via scan codes (QR).

DITA is one of the most successful structuring methods worldwide. For the first time in TIM 4.0, FCT AG integrated DITA with a specialization in machinery, plant and equipment engineering, in order to make better use of DITA in these areas. Variant handling, parts list based generation, maintenance tables, error diagnostics and other typical requirements will be covered by DITA in TIM 4.0. Here, FCT AG could incorporate valuable experience gained from more than 200 customer projects.

With the symbiosis of DITA with its topic-oriented structure and TIM 4.0 with its flexible information model an innovative, standardized and sustainable information management system is created. It offers the opportunity to share modular information between companies, suppliers or departments quickly and safely. It creates an international information model for the machinery, plant and equipment engineering strongly represented in Germany and therefore, the foundation to meet the future challenges of industry 4.0.
