Rheinmetall Technical Publications GmbH
Rheinmetall Technical Publications supplies civil and military customers with sophisticated logistics engineering and technical publications services. The company delivers high-quality technical publications including the spare parts documentation for operation, inspection, maintenance and repair of aircraft, ground and naval systems. Logistics engineering activities additionally encompass logistic analyses and concepts.
The former Rheinmetall Defence business unit was formed into an independent company under the name of Rheinmetall Technical Publications GmbH in 2007. The company is also represented in Switzerland, Great Britain and Australia with its subsidiaries.
Initially solely specialized in technical documentation, we have grown beyond our core business to include other fields. In doing so, we have consistently extended our portfolio and evolved into a technical logistics service provider. The basis of our operations is our certification as an aeronautical company for German Federal Armed Forces aircraft and aeronautical equipment as per ZV A1-1525/0-8901, which has given us our authorization for the three business units Development, Manufacture and Maintenance. We offer all services from a single source – from logistics analyses and calculations through to technical documentation and usage support for complete systems..
Technical documentation is our core expertise. We create maintenance manuals, spare parts catalogues, operating instructions, servicing and maintenance schedules, and interactive electronic technical documentation (IETD) for a variety of systems while taking into account all relevant civil and military specifications. We advise you on your documentation layout and design, and provide an updating service.
We also offer documentation for use on mobile terminal devices with different display options suited to potential usage scenarios: our "Mob4Doc“ (Mobility for Documentation).
For our Logistic Support Services and ILS Management, we coordinate logistics tasks and provide support for our customers' systems throughout their entire product life cycle. We provide calculations and analyses of reliability, availability, testability (FMEA, FMECA), safety, logistic support analysis (LSA) and life cycle costs (LCC).
We also determine required spare part quantities and emergency and deployment supplies and provide suitable transport or storage containers (supply support).
