Solution

With digital manuals, the days of long and frustrating searches for relevant information are over. The handling becomes even easier when the mobile manual is integrated directly into the digital cockpit, as with the new Mercedes-Benz Actros.
For the presentation of the new truck at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, data was prepared and integrated into an already available app architecture. The app was adapted to the customer's current needs through additional technical optimizations.

Task

  • Provision of a digital operating manual for the new Actros
  • Preparation of a Showcase for the IAA Commercial Vehicles

For this project, which was initiated at short notice, the company reacted individually to the challenges and requirements of the customer. The project was successfully completed within ten days. In order to achieve the project goals...

  • ...information was exchanged on a regular basis
  • ...the contents of the operating instructions were manually corrected, converted and made available in the app
  • ...the app was technically and contentwise optimized 
Result

Result

  • App "Digital Manual" available in the fleetboard store of the new Actros
  • Showcase based on data from the new CMS, for presentation at the IAA Commercial Vehicles

In addition to the planned project results, further benefits can be achieved for the customer in the future:

  • Derivation of correction requirements for data in CMS
  • Derivation of optimization requirements for the data supply process in productive operation
