Enhancing Specificity in Querying PDF's for a Custom Chatbot

I’m developing a custom chatbot that accesses a Cummins generator manual in PDF format. Currently, I’m facing an issue where users need to be overly specific in their queries to receive relevant responses. For instance, when asking for a consumable part’s part number, merely mentioning the part number doesn’t suffice; I need to include the description as well. I’m seeking insights on refining this process to enhance usability. Any suggestions or strategies would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have something in your instructions that tells the model what to do when it’s just given a part number? :thinking:

depending on how big and complex the corpus is, you may want to add a tool that allows it to look up part numbers directly.
