In the kind of system that would be needed to deliver dynamic content the way you describe, XMetaL's role would be for document creation. I.e. for creating DITA content and tagging various parts of the content using conditional attributes to identify which cases they apply to.
However, for filtering the content and delivering it to the auto tech's iPad a server would be needed that can retrive the content from a storage repository and build the document that is actually viewed by the auto tech. For setting that up, you would need an outside firm. I believe this type of system is something that SDL (www.sdl.com) has been actively delivering to customers for the last few years so you might try approaching them. Other CMS vendors and system integrators may also be able to provide some advice on the system you are interested in.
