ARC-Desk

CLEAR PROCESSES – IMPROVED DOCUMENTATION: FROM PILES OF PAPERWORK TO A STRUCTURED REVISION CYCLE

ARC-Desk is a web application that supports two central processes in your documentation cycle:

  • Change requests
  • Approval processes
The web application ARC-Desk supports the change requests as well as the approval processes in you documentation cycle

CREATION AND MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE REQUESTS

Start by uploading a manual to the portal. Users can then attach change requests as comments to any paragraph, image, graphic image, chapter, etc. Graphics or longer texts are added to the change object as attachments. Change requests can be discussed between authorized parties and ultimately approved or declined. The complete discussion history is permanently stored and retrievable at any stage.

REVIEW AND APPROVAL OF DOCUMENTS BY INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL REVIEWERS

You then republish the manual revised on the basis of the change requests on ARC-Desk. Changed chapters or sections are clearly marked, as are the implemented changes. Depending on authorization, reviewers can add additional comments, approve or reject the changed chapters or sections.

ARC-Desk AT A GLANCE

  • DITA support: Reviewing and approving of DITA-based publications
  • Simple, web-based configuration of rights, users and groups directly on the administration portal
  • Full text search through all or individual documents
  • Efficient, web-based HTML editor with configurable scope of features
  • Effective filtering by comment status simplifies finding and navigating through relevant comments
  • Increased security thanks to HTTPS connection

Your Benefits

  • Central administration and permanent storage ensures complete traceability of all processes: who recommended which change and when, who accepted or rejected it and who went on to implement it in the documents?
  • Do away with approval processes via PDF or paper
  • Highly efficient: Find changed or revisable areas quickly and easily. Only the changed sections require approval. All others are merely displayed. Once all sections are approved, the entire manual is approved
  • Traceability: The system permanently stores who has approved which sections (during which revision)

The ARC-Desk PrinZIPle

The ARC-Desk Principle

METAMORPHOSIS – EFFICIENT XML CONTENT PROCESSING

MetaMorphosis facilitates the transformation of SGML and XML structures, but is also able to process any other structures that can be depicted as trees, whereby it is completely irrelevant whether you are working with, for example, FrameMaker Interchange Format (MIF), database tables or Microsoft Rich Text Format (RTF) – Metamorphosis is fully flexible.

Your benefits

MetaMorphosis is modular: Its core components are MMDB for the binary representation of trees, and MMX, which interprets the MetaMorphosis transformation language used to apply MetaMorphosis scripts on MMDB objects.

It has a plug-in architecture for any input and output media. You can create plugins either as MetaMorphosis modules or in other programming languages.

An SDK with efficient APIs (.NET, C++, Java) facilitates the integration of MetaMorphosis in any processes and systems.

OVIDIUS TREEVISION – VISUALIZING AND ANALYZING DTDS

TreeVision simplifies your work with complex Document Type Definitions (DTDs). TreeVision can visualize both XML and SGML DTDs and reflects these in a tree structure.

TreeVision simplifies the development and maintenance of DTDs. Its comprehensive search and analysis options lets you find and remedy errors and inconsistencies quickly.

It simplifies the work of publication application developers.

TreeVision is not a DTD editor and is only able to depict and analyze DTDs.

Your benefits

  • Extensive search options help you to find elements and attributes, allowing you to navigate the DTDs quickly.
  • Important information is comprehensibly and graphically enhanced: for example, the number of attributes per element, direct and indirect recursion or undefined elements.
  • Image Maps allows you to easily and quickly create graphics for DTDs, subtrees or individual elements.
