Hi All,

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,

Samir Sachdeva
