Software Campus: InstaGuide – A Document Generation Prototype for Reconfigurable Software

August 11th, 2014  |  Published in Research

The Software Campus project InstaGuide tackles the problem of document generation in high variability intelligent industrial environments. The goal is to create a software prototype which can facilitate the dynamic generation of product documentation based not only on the current software configuration but also on the context at hand. At the core, it enables association, management and composition of documentation building blocks describing the software. The focus lies on natural language documentation that is used by end-users such as technicians and operators working with intelligent reconfigurable enterprise software.
