„Just do it yourself - without risk. Legally compliant and conform to the regulations with the software from the expert.“

Dr. Fritz Adrian Lülf | Technical Editor/Trainer


Systematic approach

CE - EXPERT stands for pre-defined content and menu-guided hazard analyses for drawing up risk assessments in a practice-oriented manner. As a pre-populated system, CE - EXPERT also enables the straightforward preparation of operating manuals that are in compliance with relevant guidelines and standards.

CE - EXPERT is currently offered in docuglobe and will also be available soon in XR.

  • All of the relevant guidelines are already set up
  • Risk assessments are structured according to the basic safety and health protection requirements
  • Management of directives, ordinances, standards, hazards, life cycles and hazardous locations; completely adaptable and expandable

Your benefits

  • Compliance of technical documentation is ensured for the entire life cycle of the product

  • Systematic and guided approach to ensure consistency in accordance with the requirements set out in directives and standards regarding the exclusion of sources of errors
  • Working together with various experts (designers, control system developers, technical writers, etc.) in a joint system without comprehensive expert knowledge in several domains
  • Quick and efficient thanks to the integration of an editorial management system: Reusing content instead of rewriting content

Laws, guidelines, standards, and regulations: Manufacturing companies must comply with numerous rules and regulations when creating their technical documentation and the entire process usually requires a high level of expert knowledge. In order to simplify these processes and to eliminate potential sources of errors right from the onset, the required structure of documentation is offered in docuglobe in a preconfigured form in compliance with the relevant requirements and this will soon be available in XR as well.

In mechanical engineering, for example, the EC Machinery Directive together with the “documentation standard” DIN EN 82079 set out extensive requirements concerning the content and structure of the instructions for use. CE - EXPERT is aligned with this specific legal framework and provides the complete, required content and structuring of the documents. Users just have to add their product-specific information.
