Virtual Documentation via Master Flow Chart?

#1
Has anyone created or purchased a system that would allow a high level procedure to be in the form of a flowchart with embedded text or links to bring up specific instructions so that many documents or instructions can be combined into one document and it becomes more user friendly than opening 10 standard operating procedures?

There are several ways to do this. You can build a web system with graphics and links, eventually to other documents. You can use one of the popular web editing systems to do this. For another example, ETQ Used to sell what was essentially canned procedures in flow chart format that you could then modify. You did work on a master file and then it would make a web system. Another technique would be to use a "wiki" software. This would be a non-graphical method (mostly) but would have the hyperlinks as you are considering. I have seen some discussion of this as well on the forums but it may take some digging with searches. Just a few ideas to support your thinking.

That is what we set out to do with our Author software - an individual process can have 3 levels of text / narrative (the Task Title, Task Description , Task Notes which can be toggled on/off, and hyperlinks to supporting documents and external web pages etc). Example attached of a (pdf of a) sample process description.

And the front (Welcome) page of the published (html) system can be created with links into specific parts of the overall system, so that you can have some processes and/or documents referred to from different "boxes" on the front page - so that, for example, a risk template could be part of the HSE section but also part of the Operational section.

Let me know if you want any more info.

Hope this helps.
