This paper proposes and implements an on-line instruction manual system which can generate the instruction manual page for the target device at the smartphone on the spot. The instruction manual app. on smartphone scans a QR code or reads NFC tag attached in the instruction manual management module embedded in the target device, and receives instruction manual data from the instruction manual management module through the Bluetooth communications and finally shows the refined instruction manual pages on the smartphone display using a Web-based templates. For the evaluation we embedded the instruction manual management module for an industrial generator with its instruction manual data. Assuming a circumstance of blackout we show that the proposed system can reduce the repair work within two steps compared to three steps in the existing one without the proposed system.
