80 pages is your limit? I have to suspect that Word is not really the culprit here. I routinely work on Word documents with hundreds of pages and while Word is certainly less stable than other software, for me it is nowhere near as crash-prone as what you've seen. This problem of yours may come from poor memory management by your computer, page swap space being too low, too little RAM, too many processes running, etc. Do you have this crashing problem when Word is the only application you start on your computer?Â

My experience has been that the last thing most SMEs want to do is edit
the technical manuals.

Most companies that want you to use Word just don't want to spend the
money for more tools. Odds are their engineers are just as frustrated by
the company's refusal to upgrade their CAD systems and the Production
folks are tearing their hair out because the company did SAP on the
cheap and just bought basic modules without springing to have them
customized for their workflow.
