Webinar Overview

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 2nd July 2015) and join the Digital Flight Operations Manuals / Documentation specialists at Ovidius as they walk you through step-by-step guide for creating, managing and publishing flight operations manuals and company documentation.  You will see how this process, powered by XML, allows airlines and operators to efficiently manage key manuals and documentation across EFB, Tablet Devices and the Web and ensures pilots and cabin crew automatically receive the latest updated manuals, help them find the right information faster via their EFB or Tablet Device, lower IT costs and facilitate regulatory compliance.

Using as live demonstrations of the powerful TCToolbox Airline Edition and ARC-Desk Software Solutions as a guide this Webinar walks you through the two aspects to managing the end-to-end documentation / manual process – largely focusing on the back-end processes and managing the revision cycle: 

1. The Front End: The digital flight operations manuals the pilots, cabin crew and technicians see and use – via EFBs, Tablets, Web, etc.

The Webinar begins with a brief look at the rich functionality used by the end users, via an EFB application for Operations Manuals.  Pilots, cabin crew and technicians can access their fully up-to-date manuals / documentation and enjoy the following functionality: 

  • Enable interactive capabilities to help pilots find key information within manuals faster – including search, bookmarks and personal notes.
  • Track pilot and cabin crew acknowledgements of updated content to facilitate regulatory compliance.
  • Reduces the size of data packages and shortening synchronization time when applying updates to manuals.
  • Future proofs your EFB for the latest developments
    and lots more.

You will see how this functionality is only available with an XML-based documentation revision cycle process which is the subject of the next section of the Webinar.

2. The Back End: How is this information created and managed in the background; the Documentation / Manual Revision Cycle.

In order to generate these benefits, the manuals and documents must be continuously revised and published in a standard format.  The as live demonstration section of the Webinar then shows you a step-by-step guide on how to manage the revision cycle of flight operations manuals using the powerful XML based TCToolbox software solution.

Following the processes used by airlines such as Germania, TUIfly and others, and using live demonstrations of the TCToolbox and ARC-Desk software solutions, you are taken on a step-by-step guide on how to create, manage, and publish dynamic flight operations manuals:

Step 1: Collect Information – Change Requests:

You see how to collect change requests (from OEMs, Regulators or a change in company policy) for a new manual and decide whether the information is critical and will have to be incorporated into a revised manual.  This task is carried out in an easy to use web portal (ARC-Desk) and no XML knowledge is needed.

Step 2: Manual / Documentation Revisions and Configuration:

Next you see how to integrate the change requests into the manual using the easy to use administration interface of TCToolbox powered by XML, inc: standard templates and easy-to-navigate document tree structure.  As you will see, this process is carried out by documentation experts in the XML CMS TCToolbox.

Step 3: Manage Changes – Review and Approve:

After the integration of approved change requests the manual is pushed to ARC-Desk for review and approval, including: highlighted changes, original change request attached, automatic notifications for reviewers – no XML knowledge is required.  As you will see, it is possible to streamline the approval process and to define a set of consecutive or parallel review and approval cycles, e.g. 1) internal approval, 2) FOSC approval, 3) approves by the national aviation authority.

Step 4: Release and Publication:

Once all necessary approvals have been given, the manual is released and published and is immediately available in a number of different formats and can be pushed out to EFB devices; Flight and Cabin crew Tablet devices; as well as via a Web document or PDF.
