Introduction To Authoring

Who is an EASAP Author?

An EASAP Author should be:

  • An experienced user of an underlying software application
  • Knowledgeable about the needs of the user community within their organization
  • Trained in the use of EASA Authoring tools

An EASAP Author does not need:

  • Software development experience
  • Training in GUI programming (eg. Java, C++, HTML)
  • Expertise in User Interface design

When to Create an EASAP

Where there is a repetition of effort, an EASAP will help your process.

Create an EASAP when there is…

  • A recurring need to perform similar analysis
  • A potential, or an existing User base
    …We identify decision-makers who need to access advanced software
  • A commonly used software application with a complicated interface that could be streamlined
  • A need to retrieve, modify and resubmit prior analyses
    …We create a functional archive of past runs

Obtain an Author-level User ID

Contact an EASA Administrator to get a user name and password via the list at: EASA > Help > Support

If you fit the profile of an Author and would like to generate an EASAP of your own, an Administrator may add Author privileges.

Author-mode gives browser-access to the tools needed to create, test, document and publish an EASAP.

These menus are described in greater detail in the pages below:

The best way to get a feel for the EASA system is to run one of the tutorials or examples, see Author Tutorials and Example EASAPs

In addition, if you attend an EASA Author training course you are eligible to receive technical support Author from EASA Technical Services.
