The challenge of consolidation and protecting technical information Intellectual Property

What do you do when you are given an internal project to consolidate a globally distributed corporate technical publications team? A team that over the years have developed their own tool-sets, processes, styles and attitudes towards technical publications?

Furthermore, what do you do when you discover your technical information is being distributed and sourced by those without the necessary permissions to do so and this distribution could lead to usage of outdated technical publications ending in accident or worse.

This year at TDW-Live we are delighted that James Whitehouse, Senior Director, Technical Publications, Customer Services & Support, from Meggitt PLC will tell us just how he attacked this problem and the barriers he had to overcome.

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
