Good technical communications is highly engineered. That is: high usability = highly task oriented and highly task oriented = highly modular (based on the engineering principle that each module should only accomplish one essential task).

There is no such thing as "engineers do engineering and tech writers do writing." We all do engineering; just that engineers (at least in theory) perform a more rigorous analysis than do tech writers.

Analysis, if it is to have any rigor at all, must be performed by following defined processes.
