Type 1 operational failures were forensically diagnosed as improper reproduction of the original tape tracking pathway. These failures likely reflected a degree of natural ability in visualizing the tape position necessary to restore function. This type of failure identified a missing component of the technical instructions capable of being redressed by the addition of another instructional step.
Type 2 operational failures were forensically diagnosed as insufficient physical dexterity in manipulating the components of the cassette cartridge resulting in dropping the disassembled cartridge or in mutilation of the magnetic tape after reassembly while attempting to rewind loose tape onto the tape spools.
Recommendations for Revisions to Technical Instructions:
Forensic analysis of technical failures indicated that the technical instructions lacked sufficient detail with regard to ensuring that the adhesive tape splicing the magnetic tape was secure in effecting a seal sufficient to withstand the stress of playback. The technical instructions require the addition of a….

One of the core strengths of this technical description is the use of frequent subheadings. The eye is easily guided to different issues related to the eMate300 such as "Easy Communication and Networking" or "Give More Students Access to the Technology They Need." Readers can tell at a quick glance what the eMate300 is all about without committing to reading an entire technical document. Visual and design aides like subheadings are integral to a well-composed technical document.
The product description for the eMate300 also includes enough information about the eMate300's operating system and other technical features to show that the document has been well-researched. Any technical information is presented clearly and under appropriate subheadings. For example, the "Easy Communication and Networking" section contains information about the device's TCP/IP capabilities without becoming bogged down with jargon. Emphasizing how the eMate300 can enhance the classroom environment and provide an affordable alternative to….

Its advertising is not actually false, as the game is in accordance with a few of its promoted characteristics, only that the company needs to perform a series of other modifications in order for it to live up to its advertising campaign. If all gaming companies were to wait until the products they issued were perfect, good games would be much rarer and profits would also go down significantly.
Taylor should look at this dilemma from a marketing writer's point-of-view, as this makes it possible for her to understand the fact that marketing virtually boosts the product's capacities. hen considering the management's position regarding Jake's lack of enthusiasm regarding the moment when the game is issued, one can understand that companies work as a collective. Surely, Jake wants his work to be perfect. However, he must understand that he is a part of a larger community, one that works as….
Technical Writing: Answers to Questions
Hypoxic (Swimming) -- ABC Format
'Hypoxic' is a technical term used to refer to the historical mode of training where the swimmer is taught how to restrict breathing whilst swimming. It was invented by swimming coach, James Counsilman, of Indiana University and it basically entails reducing the number of times a swimmer comes up to the surface for oxygen during a race (Sperling, 2007; Maglischo, 2003). The aim is to get them to adapt to swimming long distances without breathing, particularly because breathing induces drag and causes an athlete to slow down (Maglischo, 2003). Under a typical hypoxic arrangement, a swimmer is trained to breathe no more than once in every five strokes (Sperling, 2007; Maglischo, 2003). Once they get accustomed to this breathing formula, the coach reduces the breathing sessions even further -- most professional swimmers go up to nine strokes without breathing (Maglischo, 2003). It….

The individual propeller blades are aerodynamic in that their leading edges are teardrop-shaped from the horizontal plane in their direction of travel when the shaft is rotating. In effect, each propeller blade is a miniature air foil designed to maximize air pressure underneath the wing by creating a velocity differential between the air passing over and above the wing, respectively. In principle, the teardrop-shaped or laminar-flow wing is a technological application of Bernoulli's law of gaseous flow.
To permit the craft to be maneuverable, helicopters allow the pilot to vary the pitch of the individual rotors; this enable precision control over forward air speed and enables rotor craft to hover relatively motionless in three dimensional air space. The CX2 allows the operator to transmit system control inputs through microwave signals received by its control unit. There is a third rotor-like apparatus stabilizer option that can be installed above both main horizontal….
However, this distinction was found to be less relevant in the present situation.
There was no statistical software identified as being used in this study, nor was there any discussion of what consent procedures were used. The conclusion drawn from this study was that consumer behavior appears to be more rational as researchers are better able to predict this behavior in more situations. Perfect rationality results when either consumer behavior is sufficiently predictable or when it can be predicted from important outcomes influenced by consumer behavior. Thus consumers are becoming more rational as new models more precisely predict consumer choice in more situations. However, some interesting experimental consumer behavior research finds the opposite. This research showed that existing models fail to consider critical variables that can explain significant inconsistency in behavior.
The illusion of conflict can be resolved by understanding the difference between experimental and statistical controls. This difference explains the….
The credibility of the cluster profiles was done with representative quotes from the qualitative data. This helped to support the labeling endeavor and strengthen the insights provided by the quantitative data.
The design for this study was founded upon independent coding of the open ended responses using a qualitative analysis software program, and succeeding principal components and cluster analysis. The first step entailed reading the open-ended responses and analyzing the text data of the open-ended responses for particular themes. The procedure consisted of having two of the authors read all the comments and then jointly agreeing on which categories were present in the data. The next step entailed electronically generating coding reports using QS NVivo, a qualitative analysis software that combined similar responses across the ten categories that had been identified in the initial coding process. The quantitative part of the data analysis entailed reducing the dimensionality of the….
In the Automobile Industry the company's brand becomes its signature. If the brand is good then everyone knows that. If the brand is bad everyone knows that too. Producing a high quality product along with providing good customer service is the best way to gain and keep customers.
A company's employees can only perform these functions at a high quality level if they are trained to do so. They can only work with the tools that they are given. Training should be considered the most important tool that they can posses. In the Automobile Industry each part of the chain is linked to the next. The production workers must be trained in order to produce top quality products. The sales people must be trained in order to sell the product that has been produced. The service people must be trained to diagnose and fix any problems that might arise. And….
Since the upward forces of air pressure from the air passing below the wing becomes greater, the difference between those two forces is translated into lift (Garrison, 2008).
More recently, advanced analytical techniques not available to earlier generations of aviation designers have changed the formal understanding of the mechanics responsible for wing lift. Specifically, it turns out that most wing lift is actually provided by the angle of attack and that to the extent Bernoulli's Law applies to the equation, it may actually inhibit rather than assist lift (Garrison, 2008). egardless of the underlying mechanism, nothing more than casual observation of soaring birds was necessary to demonstrate the functional efficiency of winged flight first proven experimentally by Lilienthal in 1891.
Whereas previous technological solutions to the problem of overcoming gravity for the purposes of manned flight relied on lighter-than-air gasses or gliding wings, the Wright brothers' aircraft design was the first….

Another issue that observers have to watch out for is the effects of the Hawthorne Effect. This concept is the inclination of some people to work harder and perform better when they are participants in an experiment and they know they are being watched. People may modify their behavior due to the consideration they are receiving from researchers rather than because of any exploitation of independent variables. It is thought that individual behaviors may be altered by the study itself, rather than the effects the study (Cherry, 2012).
Observer-expectancy is a methodical mistake formed in observational data by an observer's expectations or wishes. The error is strongly connected with observations of variables that necessitate subjective assessment. Such assessments are normal in some research, and an anticipation is more often than not intrinsic in hypothesis testing, a significant tool of predictive science. "esearchers in some disciplines that are sensitive to the problem….

The difference in tone is perhaps the most important between the two categories of writing. On one hand, technical writing emphasizes the instructions that it needs to send to its audience, which is why the tone of these instructions is usually brisk and short. The expository writing, because it is often a description, can often sometimes take even a literary tone in addressing the audience. It sometimes aims at linking causes and effects: like in the case with the annual report, the plan is not only to give out the facts, but also to explain the causality behind these and the things that have led to those effects and to those elements that can be improved in the future.
The tone of the writing actually gives the format as well. In the case of technical writing, the purpose of the writing (the necessity to give out a fast set of instructions….
Grant writing requires extensive research and preparation. The goal of grant writing is to attract and secure funding, making grant writing akin to both marketing and business plans. The grant writing project should be specific and focused, appealing to a single target audience. While some elements of a grant proposal can be adapted to address different potential funders, ultimately each proposal should be tailor made.
Step 1: Honing the Idea
When it has been determined that a grant is needed, the idea needs to be honed. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (n.d.) suggests writing a strong mission statement to guide and direct grant writing. A strong mission statement will concisely tell the potential funders about the purpose of your organization and the purpose of the project for which you need funding. The mission statement should reflect the fundamental values of both your organization and the potential donor. There is no use asking….

Firstly, job postings require employees to work in shifts and sometimes come on their free days. This represents a major impediment for women with families and children who need to have a regular schedule for knowing the time they can allot to domestic responsibilities (http://walmartwatch.com/img/blog/dukes_backgrounder.pdf).
Secondly, the company lacks in female managers; even though the average number of female managers in the retail industry amounts to 47.5%, women holding leading positions at Wal-Mart account for 38.8% (http://walmartwatch.com/img/blog/dukes_backgrounder.pdf).
Thirdly, the company introduced the so-called wage caps, a technique which prohibits annual raises for workers whose salaries have already reached the cap (i.e. A pre-established sum of money). In order to start receiving the yearly raises, the respective employees must move to a superior position. As women expect longer for being promoted into higher positions and the experience they achieve is vast, they are the first segment impacted by such a policy (http://walmartwatch.com/img/blog/dukes_backgrounder.pdf).
