Using Mind Mapping

For me the visual aspect is the key. You can see everything at once and then focus on one section at times.
Using Mind Mapping software allows you to move thoughts/ideas about as the process evolves.
And last but by now means least you can have the relevant documents, pdfs, links attached so you have everything in the right place.

Mindmap for Preparing Instruction Manual

I use a mindmap software which helps in generating a website from a mindmap or text report. I supplied a measurement system to our sister unit in Brazil which uses Portuguese language which I do not know.
I made a web site using this and had hyperlinks to pictures, videos and text files which acted as a very good instruction manual. The users could install and use the system which had electrical circuit diagram and software for storing test results by this and few letters. No one was required to visit for explaining it. The CD which had this data served as instruction manual and was found sufficient.
