Author-e is an expert in advanced document creation tooling. The company develops and delivers the Author-e tool, an online document editing environment for various markets like education (eLearning), legal (contracts), European framework programme (proposals, reporting), and manufacturing (technical documentation).

What is inside: The Author-e tool allows the collaborative writing of documents by literary unlimited numbers of users without performance penalties. Thanks to the fine granularity rights and roles settings within the document the owner is continuously in control. The full tracking of the modifications - with a restore option – improves the controllability. The metadata module allows fine granularity tagging of content, used for searching, versioning, and filtered publishing. Documents and (sub)chapters can be embedded in other documents, allowing centralized control of content. Users can create notes within the document, react on it, share it with other users by mail with a deep link, and apply status with due dates to notes. The workflow module enables more advanced processes of multiple users within multiple documents. The database module allows the creation of structured data to be embedded as forms or reports in the documents. Spreadsheets can be embedded in the documents, and showing automatically the latest version of the used file. Various types of interactions - like multiple choice exercise and text fields entry’s - are used for eLearning purposes. Author-e documents can be published to various channels, like Word, PDF, SCORM, ePub, HTML and XML. Images and other assets are stored within the embedded DMS, and shows the usage and location of each asset in Author-e documents. An API allows external control of the above functionality.

What is offered: Within the Change2Twin project Author-e and Cordis are offering both tools in a combined solution. Within the Cordis SUITE users will create low-code models that initial are run within a Digital Twin setting, and eventually will run real industrial processes. When creating those low-code models, the user can enrich the graphical models with descriptions, and create by a single click the according design documentation. Every version of a low-code model stays in sync with the documentation content. Mutations between documentation versions are rendered in a changes document, which will be supportive to the life cycle management.
