TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
There is a saying that, 'Documentation should be so simple and
straight-forward that they (management) will wonder what took you so long.'
One metric of such documentation is a minimum number of pages.
So if quality documentation takes time and has a minimum number of pages,
why do all the Technical Writing experts advocate estimating techniques
based upon page count?
