The digital Operating Manual is coming

Often discussed and much anticipated – the new EU Machinery Regulation allows manufacturers to provide their instructions purely electronically for the first time.

But be careful: The regulation imposes a number of restrictions on digital user information. In our White Paper, we explain in detail what these restrictions are, and what the new regulations mean in practice. We also present four different digitalisation strategies and examine both their advantages and disadvantages.

You can find out in our White Paper:

  • What requirements the Machinery Directive places on digital Operating Instructions in detail.
  • What practical approaches result from this for manufacturers.
  • How you can realistically tackle your Operating Instructions project.
  • What technical solutions exist and how you can correctly assess the costs and benefits.
