The best project flow for each customer
The process of a documentation project goes through different phases. This is how the project flow of a documentation project with people text looks like, in detail we discuss the flow with each customer department.
The development of user documentation should be part of the lifecycle of the software
The development of user documentation should be part of the same processes as the lifecycle of the software product, and ideally should be done in conjunction with the development of the software so that the software and user documentation can be tested, distributed, and maintained together. The specification of all documentation, including on-screen documentation and printed documentation, should be a part of the development of the software product as a whole, not as a separate task. Although accurate user documentation cannot be completed until the software product is fully developed, both the user documentation and the software product benefit from concurrent development.
It includes the definition of project requirements, objectives and constraints; analysis of the target group and tasks; design, development and review of user documentation.
Basically, different project scenarios can be distinguished:
- Integration into agile development environments with assigned tasks in sprint cycles.
- The information creation process is predetermined. Documentation planned asynchronously to development. The information creation process must be planned.
