Smart Information eXperts (SIX)
Under the name Smart Information eXperts (SIX), commatec together with 5 other partners started a project to improve technical documentation accessible on mobile devices. The aim is to make information available in a demand-oriented and reader-friendly way. This translates to the user of an app only receiving the information needed for the current situation and case at hand. Additionally, the performance and ease of use of the apps should be optimised.
