Skriftlig InfoMethodology


Writing an instruction manual is sometimes a long and tedious process. It is then a good idea to establish a suitable methodology in order to work as cost-effectively as possible.

The methodology often depends on what kind of tool you use. Regardless of the tool you must still find out in which order it is advisable to develop the information, and where the information should be obtained from. It is also important to create routines for validation, and establish the formal responsibility for the texts that are created.
