The advantages of an editorial system are first fully realised when the smallest units (i.e. the text or resource modules) are topic-oriented and modularised.
A topic-oriented module is a self-contained unit that does not reference other content. The contents of text modules must also be consistent. The style, writing technique, terminology and writing rules should be defined in an editorial guide. This requires standardised text modules.
When these two criteria are met, it becomes easier to compile texts from the individual elements. Checking processes in the editorial system and authoring support can be used to provide technical assistance.
