My firm has a set of standard products which of course have complete
manuals. Additionally, we do quite a lot of projects with customised
hardware and software, which also get documented.

How do you handle this situation? Do you provide an extra document that
includes additions and specifies the deletions? Do you customise the
whole documentation including all additions, changes and deletions? Or
do you have any other suggestions?

The documentation is for now print-only.

You can use FrameMaker and its Conditional Text feature. Then, when you
want to print out a customised document, you select the conditions that
will apply to the document and generate.
