Sounds like they're thinking about single-sourcing very early on. If so,
they're ahead of most of the pack.

We're thinking along those lines, too. But being a megacompany, the powers
that be have formed "tiger teams" [Don't jump on that one, folks; I'm only
the messenger!] to address the perceived issues. Your company should be able
to move faster, but do put a fair bit of time into planning.

See the Proceedings (online) of the 2001 STC Annual Conference (at, under either "Education" or "Conferences," I forget which) for
a lot of jump-start articles and think about joining the STC single-sourcing
SIG, for a start. Also check out the websites for various tools vendors,
such as AuthorIT and XMeTaL, for demo versions you can download and play

Both JoAnn Hackos and Anne Rockley are doing a lot of good work in this
area, too. The Rockley Group, in particular, has a lot of significant
projects under its collective belt. Check out what they have to say.

Good luck with your project!
