There are lots of aspects necessary to have a happy and healthy DITA project. Project structure, version control, work-flow, custom validation rules, an internal style guide, tools to perform batch modifications, automation of the publishing processes, automation of the project-wide validation checks, ways to quickly ask and receive feedback from engineers, ways to requests and receive feedback from end users. When implemented all these aspects lead to more consistent outputs, reduce the technical writers’ stress and lets them focus on the task at hand. We will go through each of these aspects, I will show you examples of how we collaborate on the Oxygen XML DITA based user’s manual and together we’ll find some best practices leading to a successful DITA project.
