Another area where thousands of hours are lost on a project is in producing what is called technical publications; documents necessary for the aircraft wiring diagram manual supplement. Technical publications typically contain equipment list, wire list and hookup list and other technical reports for the entire project. This is traditionally generated by manually going through every drawing and re-keying the information into Excel spreadsheets. Visual Engineer allows this to be generated on the fly permitting a weekly or even daily run for production. This saves thousands of man hours and prevents countless mistakes. Technical publications are critical for the organization because it is required for continued airworthiness as part of the FAA certification effort prior to delivery of the aircraft.
