Pipeline Procedures:

The documents on this page were created for an external team located overseas. The process pipeline described in these docs are for a proprietary system and so the procedures would not be familiar to the outsource team. Since there was a language barrier as well the documents relied heavily on visuals to help explain the procedures.

Modeling Spec's:

Working with an external production team requires a high level of detail in the documentation that describes what the asset requirements are. Spending the time to put clear documentation together, particularly in the early stages of the production will greatly reduce the number of iterations and reduce the risks commonly associated with outsourcing.

The documents available on this page were created for an overseas production team hired to create the internal cab models for Train Simulator 2.

Feedback on Deliverable:

When receiving the assets back from an external production team I approach the write up on the change requests with the same detailed documentation. The common urge is to just 'fix it', but without the feedback these "little" changes will continue to show up and add up to a large cumulative time commitment.

The document bellow is an example of the level of detail I use in feedback. The pay off is less iterations and assets that continue to get cleaner as the external team learns what our expectations are for final deliverable.

Design and Usage Guides:

Documentation generated for an external client requires the layout and design to be clean and with clear explanations backed up with examples. These documents will be seen by many people with potentially a wide range of expertise in the topics covered.

The document bellow is a Logo Usage Guide intended for clients and partners that will be needing to integrate the corporate logo into their products.
