Thanks very much, everyone. All of your observations are really helpful.
 
Wolfgang, my eyes are lighting up because I work with very technical people and THIS kind of approach is something they will really like. I'm going to give it a shot. If I get hung up on the process, may I email you directly for some help?

Hello, everyone.
In this situation you can do the following:
I assume all content of the documents are valid and under some circumstances necessary to use the product. First of all, identify the purpose of each existing single document e.g. Using, Maintenance, Repair, Technical data, Spare part list etc. Then use mind mapping software e.g. mindmap for the next steps.
