For a number of years, the Navy has been pursuing a means of reducing or eliminating the amount of paper carried on board ship. In particular, technical manuals consume large amounts of storage space. The paper provides a case study of the development of a gas turbine technical manual into an interactive electronic (computerized) format. This paper presents some of the difficulties of the development process, enhancements that have been developed, software selection, graphics complexity, and hardware definition. In addition, a detailed description of a final product will be provided.
