A few years ago, many in telecommunications were wedded to
the Task Oriented Practice (TOP) format. We still use it in some
documents. We follow Bell System Practices in other documents,
sort of. In sales and marketing documents, only general composition
principles seem to apply with company logo specifications. Some
companies are using Information Mapping-based formats in some of
their documents.

We follow very rigid standards, at least in the central
office switching equipment documentation; but even those standards
are reviewed and updated periodically. At NEC America, we review
our document standards annually as do our counterparts in Japan.

So, you see, our standards aren't chiseled in stone, just
cast in thick plaster.

Best Regards,

Chuck Banks
