As modern technical products like cars become more and more sophisticated, there is an increasing demand for a new kind of technical documentation, for the owners and especially for repair and maintenance staff. To achieve this goal the instructions should be visualized by technologies adding dynamic information as a further dimension to the so far static information. A potential technology is Augmented Reality that makes it easier to understand the operation to be carried out. The superimposed and animated action becomes an additional information carrier. However, this makes high demands on the authoring process. The creation of technical documentation is an expensive and time-consuming task especially for complex products. To make this process more cost-efficient computerized support is required. Reusing data from the engineering process in an adequate way seems to be a viable means to augment technical authoring. However, the available CAD data lacks necessary information being obligatory for the authoring process. E.g. there is no dismantling information on screws or other peripheral equipment around the CAD-components. This gap can be filled by specific metadata augmenting the engineering data. Furthermore the basis for all documentation will be a generic document model. This model includes all work steps covering all cars of a type series. The adaptation of the manual to the particular product will be realized by the computer system at runtime using the metadata. The availability of an adequate authoring process is a prerequisite for the deployment of technical documentations based on new technologies in the future. This thesis presents the concept for a generic document model and an authoring process based on the separation of content from representation. It provides a creation framework for the document model, the included workflows and visualizations, and automatically adapts documentations to the real world.
