Title: A prototype of a fragmented document editor
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Basic
Description: Signifikant Svenska AB (Signifikant) supplies an information system called Assert, developed to facilitate the aftermarket sales in the manufacturing and subcontractor domains. The information system offers companies and organizations the possibility to gather their product information in a joint database in order to increase the information availability and distribution. The gathered product information includes document types such as service information, spare part catalogs with CAD drawings, educational documents and product manuals.

The management of the documents is an important part of the customer need and can be improved in order to also support document maintenance directly in Assert. At the moment, users only have the possibility to add and view documents in the database. By also providing users the possibility to create documents, update document contents, effectively reuse document sections and ease the translation of documents within Assert, the document management will be better facilitated.

The objective of this thesis is to develop a prototype which shows the concept and benefits when providing the possibility to share document contents between several documents. The prototype will be developed in C#/WPF as a part of a larger prototype system. The concept of the complete system is to make the document more modular by dividing the document in smaller parts, called document fragments, and building the documents by putting together available document fragments. The domain of this thesis is the management of the document fragments. In order to make the documents even more modular, the paragraphs in a document fragment can be shared between several document fragments. The prototype also provides text formatting alternatives and a translation procedure.
