Hi Whirler's,
I have spent most of my tech writing career in software, but most recently,
I find myself on a hardware-related contract. Procedures are procedures,
after all. And good writing and editing and graphics and templates are
needed in any documentation task.

So, one of the fella's approached me this afternoon. He has a friend who is
starting a little manufacturing business. This friend now wants to get on
vendors approved lists, and to do so, he must produce a Quality Control
Manual for his process.

My friend at the office thought that I might like to pick up a little money
on the side by helping his friend. Very flattering, and I like helping
people anyway.

BUT, I have no such template in my bag of tricks. Any pointers would be
appreciated. Also, my friend wanted me to estimate what it would cost. Hard
to estimate without knowing tasks, but impossible without template. But as a
new business, it can't be terribly complicated.

Any other thoughts on Quality Control manuals would be appreciated!
