Abstract : This is an invited address given to the Society of Technical Writers at their Huntsville Meeting, April 1966. It is concerned with certain implications of new concepts of electronic maintenance. The author and HumRRO Systems Operations Division, have conducted much of the research on these concepts, but they have been joined in this research area in recent years by other agencies and private industry. These concepts have implications for documentation, programmed instruction and other software areas in which technical writers traditionally are active. The purpose of this address was to draw a picture of how technical writers' jobs might be changed and enlarged if these concepts receive widespread implementation in the future. (Author)
