Visual design manual for a software


I need to create a visual design manual as part of a user interface guideline document for a software. Does anyone have any pointers? It would be great with some examples. Thus far I have only found corporate branding manuals online... And those are mostly describing letterheads and other printed material.

What's best practice regarding style guides/prototypes/HMI guidelines/process for huge systems in huge corporations?

Let's say (hypothetically) you're working as an HFE-specialist for a major corporation developing huge situational awareness/command and control systems for many countries. The process for HFE/ID/UX is substandard and the interfaces are often put together by the programmers. 

Now what if you could decide how everything will work instead?  What would you do, what standards would you have the company adhere to? What would the processes you design look like? What key documents would be produced?

OK, big question. But where to start?
