Mikes top tool tips – using Xmind for vital S1000D components

A great deal of my time is spent supporting clients understand and implement effective technical information process, strategies and tools. Over the years I have used free and/or low cost tools to help me in my work – my clients inspired me to produce this series as they too are finding these tools super helpful and can use their hard fought budgets elsewhere!

This week Mike asks the question about producing S1000D SNS structures, Publication Modules and DMRL’s, but importantly the tool he uses to quickly, easily and effectively create these key and fundamental parts of any S1000D project using freely available software (Xmind).

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.
