umlaut IETM is developed to overcome the challenges of paper based technical manuals. Those are:
- Paper based technical manuals are tedious to maintain.
- Change management and revision management are difficult with traditional paper based technical manuals.
- Storing and retrieving of paper based technical manuals becomes strenuous.
- Arriving at the exact technical manual and section is time consuming.
- Hotspot view in the paper manuals are basic and it is difficult to identify the different parts.
IETM compresses volumes of text into few online pages which may include audio and video and allow readers to locate needed information quicker as compared to paper manuals. It is directly integrated with CSDB (Common Source Data Base).
