Very friendly, very practical, and very industry oriented, this manual identifies and explores the documentation standards and basic skills that are used to develop and produce technical projects. It examines both industrial/corporate and academic applications of technical writing fundamentals--e.g., assembly instructions, maintenance manuals, and academic papers. It emphasizes the design and packaging of "integrated texts" that incorporate all of their media as a finished product. Viewing technical writing as "constructed/engineered" writing, it shows how technical writing is really technical composing that combines text as well as visual (graphic) and mathematical conceptualizations. Provides many writing samples and models that were developed for genuine applications in company settings. The down-to-earth, accessible style and how-to-do-it approach features a crisp corporate seminar-style presentation that gets to the point quickly stays focused on topics and situations that are clearly relevant and immediately applicable. (Part of The Wordworks Series--a series of four communication skills manuals--three writers' guides for engineering and technical applications and an additional guide to in-service spoken communication.)
