Structure and clarity
Structure is the key to saving time in essentially everything – and the domain of work commands is no exception. In order to write a work training, from the company’s viewpoint, and recognize work instructions, from the end-user’s viewpoint, there has to be a clear and to-the-point structure. Based on educational research on instructional design and learn ability, we have structured our platform into the subsequent parts:
The basic part of every training is the “guide.” You can see the guide as the whole paper brochure of a product, from first to the last page. It contains every subject, training, and step of how to use a specific product. Here’s a fixed work instruction for the Multipacker OCME, a machine used in food and beverage production, made in the SwipeGuide instruction software. Note, this work instruction does not include any information under “Topic.” The embedded SwipeGuide below is clickable.
A guide consists of numerous different directions. The Multipacker OCME work guide consists of a number of separate commands, demonstrated above, including:
- Prepare the Machine
- Prepare divider
- Safety first
These commands each contain a certain numeral of steps.
“Steps” are the full descriptions of commands. They show the user the step-by-step procedure of performing a given job. There is a clear goal in every training, and the description of the goal should be task-oriented and to the point.
Extra information about the steps can be split up into four icons, that are based on the theory of information mapping:
Regarding safety and things to know before usage, etc.
