Designing Technical Reports: Writing for Audiences in Organizations.
Mathes, J. C.; Stevenson, Dwight W.
This book, written for engineering students and young practicing engineers, provides a systematic approach to the design of technical communication: the communication process, audience analysis, and the design and writing of technical reports. Focus is on the questions that a writer must answer in order to compose clear and effective reports: who is to read the report, what do they want to know, what does the writer want to accomplish, and how should the report be structured to meet these needs?
