Mirel, Barbara; And Others
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v9 n3 p259-88 Jul 1995
Analyzes collaborations between software manual writers and graphic designers to discover how their processes of collaboration directly affect the form of a finished manual. Identifies three models of collaboration: assembly line (linear drafting), swap meet (iterative drafting and joint problem solving), and symphony (codevelopment in every aspect). Provides a case study of the authors' own collaborative effort. (PA)
