Subject:Approach for user manual From:Samir Sachdeva (STEAG) <s -dot- sachdeva -at- steagindia -dot- in> To:<techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Wed, 17 Jan 2007 11:50:33 +0530
Can anyone explain me the difference between a screen-based approach and a task-based approach for writing a user manual. I need to start the documentation of a new product and my company has asked me to evaluate both these approaches and find the more suitable one. The product is Simulator, which simulates the complete working of a power plant and shows it on the screen.
Thanks in advance,
