Using semantic metadata in customer documentation management of a software platform for medical imaging devices

At Siemens Healthineers, many devices to create, read, and archive computed tomography, x-ray, and magnetic resonance images are being developed by using and enhancing components of a common software platform.

These imaging devices become more configurable in both hardware and software, release cycles become shorter, and market availability is acquired in shorter periods of time—which in sum is challenging for user documentation teams to have deliverables ready and distributable in time. Software development and user documentation processes are closely linked.

In this presentation, we would like to give an overview about this project from both software platform and product ends, introduce our motivation to go this route, the specific challenges in a diverse yet highly regulated big-corporation environment, and the impact on everyday editorial work and authoring culture and processes.
