Setix at Kion
The KION Group (formerly Linde Material Handling) is a worldwide provider of industrial trucks. Renowned brands are Linde, STILL, Fenwick, OM, Baoli, VOLTAS and Linde Hydraulics.
In the past each brand had its own service documentation which was published with classical DTP programms such as Pagemaker or Ventura Publisher. In 2002 the KION Group changed over by using DOSCO’s XML technology under the name Setix „System zur Erstellung technischer Informationen in XML“(System creating technical information in XML).
The XML-technology supports KION Group’s multi-brand strategy ideally by means of group-wide DTD’s and brand-specific print processors. Additional benefits are the automatic preparations of the publications and the module based Documentation which can be made available to the service technicians via web technology.
In the course of time DOSCO expanded the system by further document types and developed solutions for each particular requirements.
Using Setix the Kion Group produces operating manuals, workshop literature, training documentation, presentations and data sheets in 29 languages and in formats DIN A3 (circuit diagrams) up to DIN A6 (data sheets).
