I've joined a company as an intern and will be working for about two months. The company wants me to prepare technical documents for marketing purposes for its products from scratch.

At this stage, I am preparing notes taken from my meetings with the technical and communications group. Besides preparing documentation, the company is interested in having a model devised for content management so that any person looking for information in the future has access to information easily and readily. I will be preparing diagrams using Visio and documents will be prepared in Microsoft Word. My concern is not the documentation, but the content management model.

To start with, I might use Access or Excel to prepare a table with columns: path, filename, date content created, revision date, version, content owner, images used etc. Is this a right approach to begin with?

As this might not be the right method, I raise some questions and will appreciate suggestions and help. My concerns are:

1) Are there any tools for content management?
2) how should I approach content management?
3) Are there any formal methodologies in use for content management?
