Short description:

Possible options for publishing a comprehensive operating manual with copy protection in-house are evaluated and tested in prototypes. Various concepts are investigated, such as Adobe PDF backups or the PKI (RMS and IRM in Office 2003).


The operating manual consists of Word documents and PowerPoint slides. It is to be available for use online without it being possible to copy the manual. This is intended to prevent distribution outside the plant.
