Operator manuals [example] and roll-removal procedures for paper-making machines.

Also assisted with marketing materials and white papers.

Converted all manuals from type-written and various word-processing formats to Framemaker. This presented the opportunity to design all new user-friendly layouts and styles templates.

Freed engineers from the task of making roll-removal drawings and procedures by assuming this task. Greatly improved on the usual hand-drawn sketches and minimal instruction by creating CAD drawings and more developed procedures.

Considerable time and expense was saved as well. My method allowed a very efficient creation of over 200 roll removal drawings. For one project, approximately 150 to-scale drawing were created at an average of about 30 minutes per drawing.
