The presentation is aimed at students and professionals in engineering disciplines to discuss about STREAM Tools, a system developed by Profs. Alexander Mamishev and Sean Williams and presented in the book "Technical Writing for Teams: The STREAM Tools Handbook."
STREAM Tools is a system of best practices to improve the efficiencyof collaborative writing requiring teams to learn new or taxing software. STREAM Tools helps collaborative authors unlock their fullest potential, working both independently and as a team, to create the highest quality documents in the shortest time possible. Careful selection of software to be used by the team members, avoids the difficulties that result from endless discussion of compatibility issues: teams spend their time generating new text and innovating, not worrying about small details.
The presentation outlines STREAM Tools, including the key areas ofdocument generation, writing, editing, proofreading, formatting, and file management. The presentation outlines how STREAM Tools overcomes common challenges that writers face, and addresses such areas as team dynamics, separation of duties, and workflow.
