EPMDocument Tab XML File Editor for Dynamic Documents Form

EPMDocument Tab XML File Editor for Dynamic Documents Form

Hi DITA or S1000D authors/writers,

 

After working with some information architects, there is a need for an additional XML tab in the information page of EPMDocuments for Dynamic Documents. Depending on the type of Dynamic document (just like an CAD assembly or component), a Windchill browser based additional XML tab form editor for Dynamic Documents will have the ability to create a map or content modular XML component topic.  Thus, simple authors just need to enter their information via a web page form and not via complicated Arbortext or Oxygen UIs.  Most of information authors do not need to update the formats, styles, but just need a form to enter the text information.  Formats and styles for publishing the information are designed/controlled by the limited technical writers who should use Arbortext Styler or Oxygen.  But the large group of information authors just need a web based form to enter and update their structure or modular content topics.  The EPMDocument information page is excellent to the information modular XML topic author.  The information page will instantly show all the relationships plus additional custom reports of changes and history.  This centralization of information provides an instant dashboard to the content topic author.  Having so many complicated separate authoring tools windows confuses the standard author of information.

We are looking into providing a Web-based Editor for doing minor changes to a dynamic document. It won't be embedded in the Windchill Info page, but it will be able to be invoked from the info page.
