Documentation is just as important as the manufactured product. In international steel and mechanical engineering, the materials used must be precisely verified; an undocumented component can lead to the rejection of the complete load-bearing equipment. Complete documentation is therefore always included in the scope of delivery of a load handling attachment. The information and scope must correspond to the current status of the LAM and must include proof of the quality of the components and materials used and of the tests carried out.
For simple standard solutions, a ready-made template can be used; complex solutions require adapted operating instructions. For this purpose, documents from the various sources have to be compiled, the contents are “laid out” “by hand” like print documents. The correction workflow takes place via many channels, such as email, telephone, etc. and is therefore laborious and time-consuming.
The newly developed AXZION DocuManager generates, manages and archives documentation semi-automatically and organises the workflow between customer and manufacturer. Content is prepared as an editorial part separate from the design and only merged with the export into a PDF. The documents produced in this way are archived within the system and can be viewed and sent from there.
