Technical Data Software Solutions

CDG’s technical data software portfolio, Inmedius®, can help your organization to effectively manage, author, publish and distribute your technical data. Our portfolio includes:


Inmedius® S1000Dmanager is a common source database (CSDB) that allows for quick and easy creation of projects and management of S1000D data. S1000Dmanager provides a single-source solution for the creation and management of the data through to publishing workflow, and effective reporting.

Inmedius® Advisor provides automated quality assurance to ensure that authored SGML or XML content conforms to rules and industry standards. S1000D Business Rules Exchange (BREX) authoring allows for validation of project and internal rules sets, along with unique S1000D requirements.

Inmedius® S1000Dpublisher is an add-on module to S1000Dmanager for publishing to a PDF or to S1000Dprism™, an Interactive Electronic Technical Publication (IETP).


Inmedius® S1000DauthorPro™ XE is an XML editor that meets the needs of an author at any level. S1000DauthorPro™ XE provides functions to author in WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), Tags, and Text Modes, allowing for initial checks, through to deep dives in to data. With release 7.0, S1000DauthorPro™ XE provides support for schemas that have previously not been supported in this product. This capability allows for authoring non-S1000D data in Tags and Text Modes, which can then be stored in the S1000Dmanager CSDB.

S1000DauthorPro™ provides desktop XML and SGML editing plug-in for users that want to continue using the Arbortext software.
Within the Inmedius® portfolio, we also have a solution for managing ATA iSpec2200 technical documentation.

Interactive Electronic Technical Publication (IETP) Viewer

Inmedius® S1000Dprism™ can be used online, offline or via an iPad application to access technical publications. Inmedius® S1000Dreview™ provides a means to review authored content, provide comments, and complete quality control of the documents.
