17:00 Documentation Management: DM

  • Bogdan Lent


The process of Documentation Management is aimed to secure the financially efficient service and operation of the project products and to ensure the fullest users acceptance of the recipient conforming documentation. Documents elaboration begins in the very first project stage and through all the project processes. Three types of documentation are created: for the users, for the operators and for the service & maintenance team. This recipient circle distinguishes the documentation management from the project team oriented knowledge management. The similar technical provisions such as Document Management System (DMS), data repository and retrieval tools might be applied as in the knowledge management process.

Examples of Templates, Checklists and Bibliography close the Chapter.
