Abstract
Prepare user and maintenance manuals for all the instruments and equipment of Large Observatories working in harsh environment, requires great efforts to be complete as well as user friendly. For this purpose, a standardized system such as S1000D, widely used in aerospace industry, was firstly investigated and then adopted representing undoubtedly one leap forward. Specifically in the ALMA project, this standardized system was applied for the maintenance manual of the European antennas. This choice led to a series of benefits which will be outlined in this paper through a brief explanation of the S1000D standard and some excerpts of the manual. The benefits mainly consist in the time saved during the writing and editing of the maintenance manual, its completeness due to the module based workflow and its readiness of use for the end user.
