  • 2007 IEEE Frontiers in Education Conference (FIE)

    Globalization has dramatically changed engineering. Global engineering teams design products for global markets. Knowledge has no borders in a world where information flow is digitalized and sent worldwide in seconds. A core requirement of engineering globalization is an understanding of how the different cultures of the global marketplace shape product development, mult-national engineering teams, and consumer expectations. Engineering education must address this issue.

  • Artificial Intelligence, Document Processing, and HyperText

    Text, ConText, and HyperText presents recent developments in three related and important areas of technical communication: the design of effective documentation; the impact of new technology and research on technical writing; and the training and management of technical writers.The contributors are all authorities drawn from universities and industry who are active in defining and analyzing the role of computing in technical documentation and the role of documentation in the development of computing technology. This first synthesis of their diverse but related research provides a unique conceptualization of the field of computers and writing and documentation.The book first examines techniques for writing online documentation and the value of usability testing. It presents new research into the impact of human factors in screen design and designing online help, and looks at the impact of desktop publishing on documentation, and at visual literacy and graphic design.Artificial intelligence and documentation processing are then addressed with discussion of data acquisition, automated formatting in expert systems, and document databases; the uses of HyperText in documentation; and the future of technical writing in this new environment.Text, ConText, and HyperText concludes by examining the training and management of documentation groups: how they "learn to write" in industry, management of large-scale documentation projects and their effect on product development; and the "two cultures" of engineering and documentation.Edward Barrett is a Lecturer in the Writing Program at MIT. Text, ConText, and HyperText is included in the Information Systems series, edited by Michael Lesk.

  • USABILITY: Stereotypes and Traps

    In very few years, the term usability has degenerated into a stereotype: "draft tested in a usability lab." Although such testing is an important part of usabe documentation, it is not necessarily the essential part. Moreover, usability testing, as currently described in the professional literature, is powerless to eliminate the most intractable problems of user documentation: failures of analysis and design. There are two main flaws in the current stereotype. First, it is wrong to believe that usability can be substantially enhanced after the draft is complete; the most resistant and elusive usability flaws in a publication a rebuilt into a draft and are not likely to be ameliorated by after-the-fact testing. The second flaw is that usability testing of manuals seems prone to the same mistakes as the testing of program code: the "unit test" fallacy (failure to test interfaces); tester biases; and others. This paper argues that after-the-fact usability tests are best regarded as merely a late stage in a formal process that engineers usability into a library of information products before-the-fact.

  • Customer Partnering: Data Gathering for Complex On-Line Documentation

    As technical communicators face the challenge of organizing information from different products and departments and for different audiences into integrated on-line information sources, they must perform rigorous audience and task analyses. Technical communicators today must document complex applications used in complex environments. Information about users and use models is important under these conditions, especially if documentation is to be presented on-line. Customer partnering, a method of information gathering that supplements surveys, contextual inquiries, usability testing, and interviews, provides a way of involving the users of complex applications in the design of information delivery systems. This chapter shows how this method can be used to help a client gather important information about user and use models, and design a new information library for complex server computer systems. The major benefit of customer partnering is the relationship that develops between a client company and its customer partners through repeated contact.
