TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Is anyone aware of any ISO 900 or CMM standard that specifically governs
what must be included in a particular type of software manual (to the
point of dictating, for example, that a user manual *must* have sections
called About this Software, Quick Start, User Reference, or whatever?
(I'm just making those up to illustrate my question; I'm not suggesting
that those are actually section heads that might be or should be
prescribed.) Further, if the standards exist, do they go so far as to
say what must be included in certain sections? Also, if you could point
me toward any authoritative Web site with CMM or ISO documentation
standards, I'd really appreciate it. I'm not having much luck.
Many thanks in advance,
Lead Technical Writer
