I work for an engineering company as a tech writer--mostly developing/writing
proposals manuals, reports, etc. We've experimented with several types of
binding systems, and we've found the comb-binding system to work the best. It
allows for users to keep the manual or report on their desks in a flat
manner... that way, when they're following the written instructions in the
manual or report, the entire document can remain flat on their desks.
