About the presentation

How can documentation give readers a deeper understanding of complex systems? As software becomes more complex and configurable, users find it increasingly difficult to combine information from the concept, reference and task documentation for each feature into an overall strategy that can solve a real-world problem. Worked examples can bridge this knowledge gap by showing how multiple features can be combined to address a simplified scenario that is based on a typical customer requirement.
