Modular documents - mastering variant variety with modules

Overview of the use of the modules in documents

Keeping a high number of variants under control with reduced effort

Say goodbye to maximum lists and provide your employees with variant-specific documents for their daily work without the need for interpretation.

Take advantage of digital work instructions and checklists by adding existing documents as sub-documents or modules. This reduces manual administration work and you also benefit from context-based documents.

Modular structure in documents

High effort and complexity

Regardless of whether you offer your customers individually configured products or have to maintain a machine park with many variants: In the operational process, variants mean detail-specific tasks for your employees. In paper-based processes, maximum lists are a panacea, but maximum lists have some disadvantages:

  • High manual management effort for maximum lists

  • High interpretation effort for your employees

  • High potential for errors when checking tasks

Avoid risks with a high number of variants

1,000 documents updated with one click

Do not update identical information, work steps or documentation steps for different product or machine variants in the individual document. Use a document as a module for mapping identical content in several documents.

  • Identical content maintained and updated centrally

  • Reduced effort and time savings

  • Increased process reliability

Quickly update modules in all documents

Always keep an overview

In various overviews, such as the module tree, you can see in which work instructions and checklists you use which modules with which module version.

  • Complete overview of the modules used

  • Simple tracing of module assignments

  • Used module version immediately visible
