Technical Documentation White Paper

Technical illustrationVisual technical communications –
from cost factor to added value

By Michael Wendenburg

What do customers require today? Products with higher-quality technical documentation that speaks the user’s language, is easy to understand and is up-to-date. This white paper describes the challenges faced by many manufacturing companies when creating technical documentation, and shows how the process can be streamlined through the efficient use of visual technical communications. Download the white paper (.PDF)

Abstract

When used in technical documentation or visual communication, illustrations help to clarify complex technical information. They can also take the place of text, are easy to reuse and do not need to be translated. However, it is quite difficult to create technical illustrations with traditional tools. To streamline the illustration process, companies require an all-in-one solution such as Corel DESIGNER® Technical Suite. This technical illustration software was specifically designed to meet the workflow requirements of technical illustrators. It also offers a full range of professional tools for creative design and presentation graphics, while fulfilling the following key requirements:

  • Openness and compatibility regarding the integration of visual technical communications into other processes involved in the product life cycle
  • Flexible use of engineering data from any CAD application (including 3D) to create and re-purpose technical illustrations
  • Full range of professional tools to edit technical illustrations and other images, and trace and convert scanned data
  • Wide support for industry standards and output formats in a multipurpose user environment
  • Intuitive features that curtail the learning curve, even for self-taught technical graphics users

By using Corel DESIGNER to optimize the technical documentation process, manufacturing companies can:

  • accelerate the creation of technical illustrations
  • create higher-quality illustrations
  • use more illustrations in technical documentation
  • enhance comprehensibility and reduce documentation creation costs
  • reduce time to market

If you need to improve your technical documentation process and adapt it to shorter or globalized product development cycles, this white paper will help provide useful ideas and approaches. Find out how to reduce development costs and speed up the launch of new products.
