Documentation Solutions

AEC will work with you to identify your true needs, develop pathways to meet those needs, and deliver on your expectations. We want to be more than a vendor; we want to be a partner in your success. If you have any kind of documentation problem, we can help. It’s not just all about a job or the nuts and bolts, it’s also how we approach relationships that matter.

AEC has the experience, software, and dedicated people to help define, develop, and deliver a documentation solution that works for you.

Are you looking to bring a dedicated specialist onto your team, or to offload a project to an expert autonomous team? Either way, we can provide the experts for short-term or long-term projects to meet your documentation requirements.

Or you may require conversions from PDF to Framemaker or XML, migration from an outdated native file format to a format more in the current mainstream, or you may need help defining an approach that works best for you.

We can help you with design concepts to setup a tech pubs department and processes from scratch. Creating style guides, templates and standardizing branding are something we help many customers with. Then we often provide surge technical writers to support your existing team, or we can be your tech pubs department. We can also consult with you to choose publication software and delivery methodology.

We can also help you improve existing manuals through document redesign, standardization, redline incorporation, validation, and technical editing.

Some of the problems that AEC can help you solve include:

Template setup for reusability

Consistent paragraph tags and style. Allows for future seamless transformation to XML or another mark-up language.

Documentation is a concept that covers a lot of territory.  From bone and ivory commodity tags discovered in the third millennium BCE Egyptian tomb of Scorpion I to the use of qubits to document security keys for quantum communications, people have sought out better ways to meet their documentation needs.  While AEC does not currently engage in quantum documentation techniques or the carving of hard organic materials, we can work with you to identify and implement a documentation solution that works for you.

AEC has the experience, software, and dedicated people to help define, develop, and deliver a documentation solution that works for you.  Not all documentation lends itself to classical technical writing.  You may require conversions from PDF to Framemaker or S1000D XML, migration from an outdated native file format to a format more in the current mainstream, or you may need help defining an approach that works best for you.  We can help with the technical aspects of your S1000D production by providing XSLT/XSL-FO, Applicability, and CIR support   AEC can identify and develop unique solutions that meet your goals, then work with you to create documentation that covers your needs.
