Instruction manual design

The right technical documentation can make all the difference between success and failure of a particular mechanical design. While the best designs are easy to use and their function is clear to experts, it is of utmost importance to make sure that the supporting documentation is easily accessible to those who are not necessarily experts, but may still need to utilise the full functionality of the product. The last thing you want for an end product is for people to underestimate its value.

So, to allow users and potential sellers of your products or components to get the best from them, you need more than great mechanical design or obsolescence management. A clear and concise but comprehensive instruction manual is a must. Often great products get let down by poor instruction manual design.

Anyone who has admired a stylish and functional piece of flat pack furniture and then tried to assemble it alone knows that incomprehensible and unclear instructions (often poorly translated and without appropriate illustrations) can mean what actually appears in your bedroom won’t be as good as the one presented in-store.

It’s sad but no surprise. Why should anyone assume that a furniture maker knows anything about writing and illustrating instructions? They design and make furniture for a living, not instruction manuals. As experts, we can take care of your technical manuals and instructions for you. This will then give you the freedom to do what you do best, and let us focus on conveying the quality of your designs to the world.
