Individual project 4


After reading chapters 13, 17, and 18 in Technical Communication, compose a technical description (a "complex product description") for one of the following:

  • bicycle dérailleur
  • MP3 player
  • DVD player
  • automobile jack
  • garbage disposal
  • portable dehumidifier
  • food processor
  • pacemaker (the medical device)

Length: 2-3 pages.

Layout and visuals: make the description as "professional-grade" in both design and substance as you can; include visuals.

Research and sources: Do online research as needed, acknowledging all source material carefully. Obviously, you should not borrow wholesale from any sources; use the research to educate yourself, then describe the mechanism or product all in your own words (include no direct quotations and try to avoid even paraphrasing).
