Re: Technical Writing in the Manufacturing Industry: Supplements, Cosmetics, OTC
Just landed my first tech writing gig in the quality control department of
a midsized manufacturing company. We produce dietary supplements and are
regulated by the FDA. I want to learn more about industry-specific tech
writing practices because there's so much regulation surrounding our
products. When I look for information about tech writing and manufacturing,
I find a lot about electronics and consumer-facing documentation. I'm
dealing with foods, packaging, compliance, and internal documentation. Does
anybody here work in a similar industry and have some advice for someone
who's just getting his feet wet? And more specifically, any recommendations
for document management/control (I was thinking a long-term goal of
transitioning to DITA)?
