Technical documentation or product information means the technical product data required throughout a product’s lifecycle, which is included in user and installation guides, user and maintenance manuals, spare parts catalogs and marketing and training material. The quality, timeliness and findability of product and asset information has major significance for the smooth flow of servicing and maintenance, for example. High-quality and user-friendly documentation also meets industry standards and directives (e.g. the machinery directive), which ensures the safe use of machinery and equipment.


How much does the technical documentation for your product or asset cost?

Product development or plant engineers often take responsibility for creating and managing product documentation on top of their other tasks. For this reason, monitoring the true costs of documentation can be difficult. Additionally, documentation takes the professionals’ time away from developing their core expertise, which also has a price tag. Technical documentation is a special field of expertise with constantly digitalizing and evolving methods and tools. This is why we pose the question: Does it make overall financial sense to produce and manage technical product information or asset information in-house?

High-quality technical manuals and guides benefit both maintenance professionals and customers and end users. At their best, up-to-date and clear manuals improve the product’s user experience and customer satisfaction. High-quality manuals and spare parts books also benefit the servicing and maintenance business: maintenance tasks become faster when data is up to date and the right information can be found quickly. The efficiency of maintenance business increases when equipment and plant downtime decreases due to effective maintenance.
