Redesigned Documentation System.

Algor, Inc., a manufacturer of software for mechanical engineers, has redesigned DocuTech, the company's documentation system on CD-ROM. Available with Release 12, Algor's latest version of its finite element analysis (FEA) software, DocuTech includes a new single interface window, reorganized technical documentation, and enhanced capabilities that reportedly enable engineers to search through Algor's software and reference documentation more quickly and easily.

When engineers open the new interface window, they will see a streamlined table of contents, which includes technical documentation manuals. From this interface window, engineers are also linked to a manual for new users that contains an installation guide and information about FEA operations. Users can immediately access an updated glossary of FEA terms or Algor's latest keystroke tutorials, which provide instruction on the most frequently used finite element modeling, engineering analysis, and mechanical event simulation capabilities. Also offered is a new search engine, which enables users to selectively search documentation by chosen categories. Users can search for exact word phrases or can perform keyword searches.
