S1000D PDF Pub s1000d-support-adobe-fm10-whitepaper
S1000D is the efficient, modern way to create, manage, and publish technical documentation for aerospace and defence projects. As an international specification, S1000D is being widely adopted for military projects in place of existing national standards. It is also gaining ground for civil aerospace projects. Whether you have a contractual requirement to deliver S1000D or chose the specification voluntarily, there is a lot to get used to before initial publication. While the complexity of S1000D cannot be ignored, it can be tamed when you have the right tools.
Adobe® FrameMaker® 10 delivers S1000D support as standard. Find out how easy it is to create your first S1000D issue 4.0 project using Adobe FrameMaker’s innovative Common Source Data (CSD) features. With FrameMaker, your S1000D project can start small and then grow as your needs dictate.

Here’s a summary of the Whitepaper.
Content development managers today have a number of pressures driving them to consider structured and topic-based authoring. They have heard that migrating from unstructured content to topic-based structured content can result in significant cost savings. However, the Return on Investment (ROI) justification may not be clear. Moreover, once the decision is made to migrate, choosing the best processes and authoring tools out of the many that are available can be overwhelming.
This paper discusses the issues involved in migrating to topic-based structured content, develops a list of requirements that an ideal structured authoring tool should have, and proposes a solution that has the highest ROI and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
On detailed analysis, eventually the whitepaper surmises that Adobe FrameMaker 10 is the highest ROI, lowest TCO solution for migration to XML/DITA and for ongoing development.
