If you're reading this, you're probably involved, in some way, with an O&M manual project. I'm sorry to hear that. Just kidding! Producing a well-written O&M manual can definitely be challenging. But it can also be very rewarding. Especially when you realize the manual is being used and is seen as a useful tool. Producing a good O&M manual doesn't have to be a daunting task. If you attack the project one step at a time, like I describe in my book, it doesn't seem near as scary. The most important part I've found about producing a good O&M manual, printed or online, is obtaining input from the end users. That doesn't mean the manager who authorized the project, unless of course he or she will indeed be a primary user. Moreover, it's the comments and uninhibited input from the day-to-day users that will make your O&M manual project a success. Trust me on this one. I think you'll find my book most helpful. I've put years of my own experience of preparing printed and online O&M manuals into the book. My mission was to take the fear out of preparing quality manuals while providing valuable tips and suggestions for the process. Please drop me an e-mail if you have any questions regarding the book or you've ran into a problem with your own O&M manual project. I'd be happy to help. Oh, and above all . . .have fun!
