Plan Ahead and Act Proficiently for Reporting

The material Einar Karlssen and I created for the Interconnect 2016 Plan Ahead and Act Proficiently for Reporting session is available on Slideshare in addition of being available via Interconnect Mobile Application

This alongside the best practice articles Kumar just posted can be used as a frame of reference for building documents with RPE.

Plan Ahead and Act Proficiently for Reporting

Plan Ahead and Act Proficiently for Reporting covers the most important lessons we learned in almost 7 years  of implementing document generation with Rational tools.

Many thanks to Dr. Einar Karlsen for his pioneering work with RPE which  is distilled into this material. Unfortunately  for reasons outside his control Dr. Karlsen will not attend Interconnect this year so I am tasked with sharing this wonderful information alone.

Looking forward to see you on Monday, 22nd of Feb from 12PM.
