Digital Data in a Rotary Wing World

Modern turbine powered aircraft are among the most sophisticated and complex mechanical devices ever created. Learn how a digital data in the rotary world is fast approaching the level of maturity seen in the fixed wing world.


Change Page and Point Page Application (CAPA)

The CAPA application from Terra bridges the gap between the worlds of loose-leaf paper and electronic publishing. CAPA operates against any well-formed XML data, regardless of doctype or schema, producing PDF files that meet most loose-leaf publishing requirements. Since CAPA’s differencing capability integrates with the PDF composition engine, it doesn’t need to rely on change tags within the authored content.  Take control of your change and point page processing. Eliminate old or costly proprietary solutions.


A Business Case for Integrated MRO Content Management

Learn how an integrated document management system can unify MRO processes and provide a consistent platform for search, viewing, collaboration, and workflow for all types of engineering, maintenance, flight ops, and internal procedures content.  A consistent platform is easier to use, reduces costs, increases awareness, and promotes quality and safety.

Case Study: National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)

NFPA is responsible for managing the development of codes and standards that help improve safety across global industries and trades. Learn how Terra provided an online document review platform that enables NFPA’s 8,000 committee members to interactively participate and crowdsource in the ongoing development and refinement of more than 300 different codes and standards.

To support NFPA’s ANSI accredited standards process, NFPA chose the TerraView software platform for the next generation of codes and standards development. TerraView provides XML document publishing capability necessary for electronic and print publications leveraging DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture), as well as collaboration and consensus functionality to meet requirements for public participation, review, and comment during the standards development process.
