Goal
Develop a set of technical instructions for an Astrolabe using a created persona, logic trees, and affinity diagrams to rationalize the document.
Project Statement
Styles, formats, and elements that make up a good set of technical instructions contain a variety of features to ensure the composition is clear, concise and visually pleasing. The Astrolabe technical instructions presents enumerated task-steps, expository glosses, and an explanatory image to accompany every task. A materials list in a column or cartouche, notes on use, and function.

A persona was created based on research in order to represent the different user types that might as Astrolabe. The persona helps understand the users’ needs, experiences, behaviors and goals. 

The Astrolabe is made up of different pieces and can be used for personal, professional, and leisure activities.
