Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI)
Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM)

Design Mill designs and develops high resolution 3D Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM) and Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI). Our team of professionals integrates talent, technology, and creativity to stretch the boundaries of interactive training and technical manual development. We offer a tremendous amount of functionality without the need for expensive plug-ins.

We leverage all existing government furnished information and work closely with Subject Matter Experts to bring all system information together in one place. By doing this we are able to create a fully interactive complete package with intuitive drill downs on all systems, sub-systems and components. Our products include fully textured 3D rendered images, single and multi segment animations, and voice over audio with readable text. By engaging the student’s senses, we provide a more dynamic learning experience which helps increase student comprehension and retention.
