Technical Documentation

In engineering, any type of documentation that describes handling, functionality, and architecture of a technical product or a product under development or use. The intended recipient for product technical documentation is both the (proficient) end user as well as the administrator/service or maintenance technician. In contrast to a mere ‘cookbook’ manual, technical documentation aims at providing enough information for a user to understand inner and outer dependencies of the product at hand.
