Situation

When SDF produces a new machine, their work involves designing and developing a whole series of instruction and maintenance manuals, spare parts catalogs and legal documents. SDF's leaders wanted to create these documents as efficiently as possible, with emphasis on reducing translation costs and facilitating publication in different media.

Solution

Italian IM Partner Writec demonstrated to SDF that the Information Mapping Method could help them achieve their goals. Besides providing training to their technical writers, Writec has developed the manuals for two of SDF's tractors.
