Structuring an S1000D Publication Module or S1000D Component Maintenance Publication is a task that I have to perform regularly. Often I am asked to put something together so a client can visualise how their S1000D Data Modules will be structured in output or deliverable.

In this tutorial, I show you a tool that I use (MindManager) for Structuring an S1000D Publication Module to show clients the structure of a Publication Module or Component Maintenance Publication. The benefit of this method is that the client does not need to concern themselves with XML structures of having to decipher where a PMENTRY actually sits, ths visual structure makes it so much easier for them to follow along without troubling them with tags.

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.
