Working for a large transit authority, I am looking at means of
putting our maintenance procedures and manuals on-line. I have a
couple of restrictions:
-we do not want to tie ourselves into a system that requires us to
send documentation outside in order to update procedures. We want to
write and publish in-house
-out most recent vehicle acquisition is being provided with
maintenance manuals prepared in Framemaker
-our industry has not developed a DTD for SMGL
Therefore, I have a couple of questions:
Would Frameviewer be an effective way of launching on-line.
How can we manage dozens of on-line documents if we choose to prepare
new maintenance procedure using Framemaker.
If anyone has experience in this area, I would appreciate your
