This paper describes problems with the provision of guidelines for the user atmachines today. For the situation-oriented provision of information, a conceptstemadi will be developed. In the middle of the concept is the stemadiinformation model for the technical documentation that is based on thestructure of the machine and is automatically available for use. Besides thephysical and functional aspects, the model also describes the guidelines forthe user at the machine. The extended and modified structure of the technicaldocumentation realized in the stemadi information model allows the automatedadaptation of the guidelines to the existent publication medium and theprovision of the guidelines on this medium. The differences between thepublication media (resolution, size, colour depth, etc.) will be consideredhere. With the situation-oriented and publication medium oriented extractionof the relevant guidelines according to the information model, the user at themachine will be supported in making decisions.
