APP Standardises Technical Publications Across the Australian Defence Force

In an unusual test of APP’s diverse capabilities, in 2008 the company was appointed by the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) to create, standardise, update, and maintain the Explosive Ordnance related publications used across Defence.

APP was appointed to provide technical writers to create the publications, and to publish the finished works online. The task was extensive, requiring wide-ranging engagement with internal and external Defence stakeholders to identify the publication requirements and information sources.

Beginning in 2008, the team was expanded in 2009 to meet the emerging demands of the project, which involved collating and sifting through vast amounts of information, and the creation of standardised engineering documentation.

The work required significant research, with the information spread over more than 10 ICT systems, under the management of a number of different agencies.

A key milestone was reached in late 2010 with the creation of a new online library of Defence Explosive Ordnance Publications, available to all ADF personnel wherever they are deployed across the globe.
