How many pages can a technical writer produce in x amount of time? It
depends. If you've been with your current employer for a while and
you've already completed several projects (manuals), then you could
gather metrics from what you've already produced to create an average

Subject: Formula for Tech Writing Lead Time?
Is anyone aware of a formula for how many words/pages a Tech Writer
can produce in a given period of time? I am being asked to take on
additional manuals and upper management wants some numbers to justify
additional head count that will be needed. I can probably come up with
an estimate based on what we produce today, but I was wondering if some
kind of standard already exists.
