GRIPS is a structured information management system that allows large volumes of information to be authored and published quickly and economically. Designed for Industry 4.0 the GRIPS structured approach supports feedback from sensors and users so rapid product improvement is implemented.
GRIPS structures and compresses technical information so that, more manuals can be produced and updated with less effort. For example, if a bolt was found to need a different torque, all components, in all products that used that bold, can be identified and a new manuals instantly produced with the new torque settings. This is done instantly for all products. Massive amounts of work is saved.
- GRIPS requires 60% less effort to produce a new product. Only what is unique to the new product is specified. Everything that is common across all other products is reused. This saves costs across functions such as design, documentation, support, and maintenance /service
- GRIPS automatically reuses content regardless of how the content is displayed (paper, web, phone, tablet, app, etc), so the same content is repeatedly and automatically repurposed
- Processed-driven two-way communication between information users and information creators (writers) speedily improves content
