I’m working on a business writing question and need support to help me learn.Overview As Chapter 7 of our textbook revealed, technical descriptions (TDs) explain objects or processes in detail and are written by experts for a non-technical or equally technical audience. Descriptions appear in almost every technical document. Professionals often rely on TDs for two purposes: 1) to describe a mechanism/product/formula/model in detail and 2) to describe a process in detail. A technical description requires specific, direct language so that the reader understands what makes up the product or what the process entails. As an expert in your field, you could encounter technical descriptions on a daily basis and will probably even create some on your own–often for the general public or for someone in a non-technical position within or outside of your company. General Requirements To practice writing this genre, write a product (option 1) or process (option 2) technical description. Be sure to do the following, at minimum: Choose a topic related to your major or something that you know enough about to write in detail
Select a topic that you know a lot about (no outside research is needed–you are the expert here), have access to and can take apart (for picture-taking purposes)
Use a specific title versus a vague one
Write technically (specifically, concisely, and objectively)
Organize a standard technical description document
Reach approximately 1 1/2 – 2 pages, single-spaced (guideline: 500-1,000 words, though more is possible)
Submit the technical description to Canvas.
Also note this Important Additional Information about the Technical Description Assignment.Option 1: Product Technical Description With this option, practice detailing a product, mechanism, theory, formula, or model by describing its parts in-depth. You must choose a topic that has at least five parts/components. Probably don’t pick an object with too many parts due to our limited timeframe. Refer to the list of topics that previous students have used (but don’t use one of these–come up with your own): Pet nail clippers
Choose My Plate
Beehive
ABCX Model
Rubik’s Cube
Atkins diet
Gross National Formula
Stethoscope
After you’ve chosen a topic, describe its parts and how it works, not how to use it–the focus should remain on the object, not the user. Option 2: Process Technical Description With this option, write a process technical description by describing a whole process or task. You may pick any process, but you must come up with at least five steps that are needed in ordert o complete the process. Problably don’t pick a process with too many steps due to our limited timeframe. Most importantly, pick a process that you are very familiar with–this technical description needs to come from you, not an outside source. Refer to the following list for ideas of what past students have done (but don’t use these): How a combine separates kernels from the other parts of the corn
How to identify bullying among 4th graders
Developing black and white film
Building a web page
Winterizing a car
Quitting smoking
Pickling green beans
Dressing appropriately for snowmobile driving
Treating a second-degree burn
Developing confidence
Washing a sweater to prevent it from shrinking
What happens when cheese ages
Cleaning a dog’s ears
After you’ve chosen your topic, describe how that process happens, possibly without human interaction. Helpful Note: You are not instructing someone on how to complete the process; the readers are curious about how that process happens, but they are not completing the process themselves.
